Devlin Talks About UM Visit

Pat Devlin made a summer commitment to the University of Miami before having a successful senior season. Right after his season ended, he made an official visit to Miami, which took place last weekend.

"It was a great trip," Devlin said. "I had a lot of fun. It was really nice getting to meet some of the other recruits and spending time with them."

When asked about his favorite part of the visit, he had an interesting response.

"To be honest, it was probably the eating," he said. "We ate tons of food and it was awesome. Actually, I liked every aspect of the visit. Nothing really stood out more than anything else, really. The campus was beautiful and I really liked watching the team practice."

Pat Devlin, who checked in at 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds, said he saw some things about UM that he wasn't quite expecting.

"Being from Pennsylvania, I wasn't used to seeing all those palm trees," he said. "Plus, I really liked how the campus surrounds a big lake in the middle. What a great place to be going to class, huh?"

The talented quarterback, who finished his senior season with close to 3,000 yards and led his team to a spot in the district final game (11-2 record), had the chance to hang out with some of his future teammates.

"Kirby Freeman was my host," he said. "He's a great guy. They have some great quarterbacks there so it'll give me a chance to learn from some really good players. I'm excited about the direction of the program because while watching practice I noticed a lot of great athletes and a lot of them are young -- just freshmen and sophomores."

Devlin, a full academic qualifier, is not taking any other visits for the rest of the year.

"I'm totally committed to being a Hurricane," he said.
