That's because FIU has frosh Jake Medlock waiting in the wings, and at least two more heading to campus next to fall, according to internet reports.
Dylan Warner, a 6-1, 187-pound run-pass threat from MacArthur High in Lawton, Okla., apparently has recently committed to FIU, joining Central's Rakeem Cato in FIU's recruiting class of 2011.
The Oklahoman reports Warner's choice came down to Wyoming and FIU, but chose the latter because Mario Cristobal recruited him as a quarterback.
Cato's Rockets torched his former team, Miami Springs, last weekend 70-0, needing their starting QB to complete just 6 of 10 passes for 144 yards, but with three touchdowns.
FIU cannot officially comment on recruits until they sign their letter of intent, but word is the Panthers are also in the running for a highly touted quarterback recruit in California, as well.
Warner's commitment gives FIU roughly 10 thus far. The others, as reported by Rivals.com: Cato, LB Demetrius Allen, RB Shane Coleman, LB Lyndon Edwards, TE Ya'Keem Griner, OL Richie Reay, DB Luis Rosado, OL Everette Slocum and WR Clinton Taylor.
