College football recruiting: Miami Hurricane commitments


KEY LOSSES: CB Artie Burns, S Deon Bush, DB Dallas Crawford, DL Ufomba Kamalu, LB Raphael Kirby, LB Tyriq McCord, WR Rashawn Scott, WR Herb Waters


Player Pos. Ht./Wt. School
Jack Allison QB 6-5/195 Palmetto

HOT PROSPECTS: New coach Mark Richt has the Hurricanes in line for a top-20 class that ranks among the top four in the ACC. Irvin has a famous father (the former UM and NFL star) but isn't the most highly touted receiver in the group. Bruce is one of Rivals' top 50 prospects and scored the first touchdown in the Class 7A state championship. Byrd and Quarterman are also consensus top-100 recruits. Mullins had a highlight-reel, one-handed touchdown catch in this month's Under Armour All-America Game. That pass came from Allison, a four-star recruit who could battle for the starting quarterback job when incumbent Brad Kaaya leaves.
