Of course, the highly-touted recruit posted a Tweet of his own.


Allison is a huge get for Hurricanes coach Al Golden, who could now have yet another quarterback that takes the program forward. Brad Kaaya will be around for at least three more years, plenty of time for Allison to learn the system and be groomed as an eventual starter. On top of Miami, he had received offers from Alabama, Tennessee, South Florida and Missouri while also drawing interest from Georgia and Florida State.

Instead, he will join a Miami team that is starting to see gradual improvement under Golden, having gone 28-22 (16-16 ACC) in four years under the coach. Just how much playing time he gets in the future remains to be seen, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that he is a huge score for the program.

Miami opens the season at home against Bethune-Cookman on September 5.
