Miami head coach Al Golden is on fire right now.
The Hurricanes received another 2016 verbal commitment Saturday at the Rivals250 Underclassman Challenge from American Heritage (Plantation, FL) wide receiver Dredrick Snelson. Snelson is very close to the program. According to Canesport.com, he is the nephew of current Hurricane Joe Yearby and cousin of Jermaine Grace, Malcolm Lewis, and Tracy Howard.
Snelson is already the seventh prospect to commit to Miami’s 2016 class which is far and away the top class so far.
But do not get too excited too early Miami fans, since the 2016 signing day is still nineteen months away. However, Al Golden is doing an exceptional job right now, especially in South Florida.
Snelson joins an already dynamic wide receiver class for Miami that includes Dionte Mullins and Sam Bruce. All three are expected to be ranked in the Top 250 overall prospects for next year’s class which would be a great haul for the Hurricanes.
The talented wide receiver talked to Gary Ferman of canesport.com about his big day.
“I will be taking my talents to the University of Miami,” Snelson said, flashing a Cane hat. “I just feel comfortable with the coaches, everything, the campus. I feel that’s my home, where I’m comfortable. That’s where I want to play.”
“Not everybody gets the opportunity to stay home and play football at Miami. I’m glad I have the opportunity to do that. … Miami is just home. That’s my school.”
Snelson chose the Hurricanes over Clemson, Florida, and Florida State.
