Miami’s recruiting class for 2012 is one of the strongest in the nation.
The Hurricanes have commitments from 24 players for the 2012 class. Miami’s current class ranks No. 5 nationally on Rivals and No. 6 on ESPN.
But will that continue to be the case following yesterday’s report from Yahoo! Sports?
The immediate reaction from Miami’s commitments appears to be positive for the Hurricanes.
Running back Duke Johnson from Norland High School in Miami said he’s sticking with Miami despite the allegations facing the Hurricanes.
“Oh yea I’m the same with everything, I’m good to go,” Johnson told InsideTheU.com. “I’m not worried because this is all stuff that happened in the past. I know I haven’t received anything (in terms of benefits) and that has nothing to do with me or my family.”
Miami wide receiver commit Herb Waters had a similar response.
“My commitment is solid and I have no doubts in my mind that I want to be a Hurricane,” Waters told the website. “I know it’s going to blow over but that’s how people get when they see something good going on for a certain team or a certain person.”
Quarterback Gray Crow reaffirmed his commitment to Miami, although he left some wiggle room when he told InsideTheU he’s “pretty sold” on still going to Miami. Other prospects have remained silence since yesterday’s news broke.
As Bryan Fischer of CBSSports.com points out, Miami coach Al Golden will face a lot of questions on the recruiting trail regarding the allegations and potential violations for his program.
And a lot of those questions will come from current commitments.
