Miami picked up a big commitment at the U.S. Army All-American Game Today when wide receiver Lawrence Cager gave his pledge to Al Golden's Hurricanes over a number of other programs, including SEC power Alabama. Georgia, Ole Miss, and Virginia Tech were also involved, but ultimately The U won out, and Cager even used a touchdown in the all-star game to give a shout-out to his new school.
Cager told SB Nation Recruiting that the chance to play with a rising star at quarterback like Brad Kaaya helped put Miami over the top.
In fact, Cager said that Miami jumped heavily into the mix for his services because of the Freshman All-America season turned in by Kaaya given his desire for stability at the position.
All four of the other programs Cager was considering are losing senior quarterbacks, meaning there is no long-term stability at the critical position for those schools...
Cager becomes the third wide receiver in this Miami recruiting class, joining Terrell Chatman and Therrell Gosier.
