UM Lands Another Big Commmitment

The University of Miami has landed yet another big commitment, this time in the form of 6-foot-5 and 328 pounds. "That's where I'm going to go," Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely standout offensive lineman Cyrim Wimbs said of the Hurricanes. "They got it all." Wimbs selected the Hurricanes over N.C. State, Florida State, and Ohio State.

"At first I was telling people what they wanted to hear," he said. "But then that started to change. I couldn't keep telling everyone I was going to visit. Ohio State wants me to come in January, but I'll probably only make one more visit and that's to Miami on the 20th."

Wimbs talked very highly of the Hurricanes.

"It's a great program," he said. "I mean, look at the success they're having. They have a great offensive line every year too. After [Vernon Carey] leaves, it's going to be me and the kid from Dwyer [Rashad Butler] probably. Plus, I really like Coach Kehoe. Miami's been on us for a long time now too."

The standout lineman, who will play right tackle at Miami, will be getting an in-home visit from Kehoe after he returns from the state title game.

"He's coming by the house next week to talk," he said. "[On Monday] he basically talked about how both of us are preparing for a championship game. We play ours on Friday and they play theirs next month."

Wimbs became the second player this week from Ely to pledge to the Hurricanes. Offensive lineman Andrew Bain has not yet made his decision.

"I know he likes Miami a lot too," he said. "We all grew up together and have been playing together. So it would be cool to be able to stick together in college."
