Former Tampa Bay Tech offensive lineman Tyree St. Louis, who transferred to IMG Academy following his freshman season with the Titans, orally committed Tuesday afternoon to the University of Miami.
The Tampa resident, who devleoped into a 6-foot-6, 300-pound force and one of the top lineman recruits in the country, picked the Hurricanes over his other finalists: Florida, Mississippi State and Tennessee.
“The main reason I committed to Miami was [offensive line] Coach [Art] Kehoe – he’s the best in the business, and I know playing under him will give me a great shot at getting to the next level,” St. Louis said, according to a news release issued by IMG. “It’s been a great process and I’ve been to some great places, seen great facilities and met some great people, but my recruitment has come to a close with the University of Miami.”
St. Louis is entering his final season at IMG.
MIami is on a roll recruiting the Tampa Bay area, already having picked up commitments from linebacker Bowman Archibald (Pasco), quarterback Dwayne Lawson (Hillsborough) and defensive lineman/linebacker Scott Patchan (Freedom).
