Four-star wide receiver Michael Redding III has NFL size and attends the highly touted IMG Academy. With tons of top college offers available, he has made his commitment decision.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Redding revealed that he would be taking his talents to South Beach and joining the Miami Hurricanes. Earlier this month Redding made an unofficial visit to Miami, but took another visit to Florida the following day.


247Sports rates Redding as the No. 131 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 28 wide receiver in the nation, and the No. 17 prospect from the state of Florida.

Redding had outstanding offers from two dozen schools, including Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Michigan among others.

According to 247Sports, Redding spoke to Miami wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield on Sunday, who along with head coach Manny Diaz, sealed the deal with a conversation.

"Basically you know I had a good talk with [Stubblefield] then I got to talk to Coach Diaz. I talked to him and he let me know [I had a full ride and a spot]. You know I was all in on Miami from the jump."

Redding joins a Miami team that has been putting together a top 10 recruiting class for the 2020 cycle.

As of writing, the 19-man Miami class is ranked No. 9 in the nation and No. 2 in the ACC by 247Sports.

After finishing a disappointing 7-6 in 2018, the Hurricanes could get very good very quickly if they continue recruiting this well.
