According to scout.com, Miami Northwestern receiver Dominique Rhymes verbally commited to FIU on Dec. 30. Rhymes is listed at 6 foot 3 and 205. This season Rhymes caught 42 passes for 746 yads and 8 scores. Rhymes could be a valuable addition to an already stacked receiver core.
Update on Cato, Scout now lists Cato's commitment level as soft verbal.
Boyd Anderson corner back Corey Tindal verbally committed to FIU a few days before Rhymes. Tindal is listed at 5-10, 165. Scout lists Tindal as a corner back, even though Tindal played the majority of the year at running back, amassing 1292 yards and 10 TD.

@miami south paw, FIU has some nice O-line and D-linemen in waiting. Going to be hard to replace Serini. That might be one of the biggest factors next season. The center is the second most important job on the offensive line. Could argue it's the most important. Good to keep Caylin around for another year.
@miami south paw, I could see Revilla switching over, but still really hard to replace so much experience.
@MiamiSouthPaw, I have seen Medlock some in practice. Looks like a good sized player with good arm strength. It's going to be tough for Carroll to lose the starting job.
On the Cato front, there are some indications he is keeping his options open at the moment. That does not mean he won't commit on signing day. Always good to bring in more than one QB. A Juco player will be more polished than a kid out of high school.Q. SCOUT.COM Reports: FIU is ranked only FIVE spots below UM in the 2011 recruiting class, out of 120 schools.
@Quijote, Cristobal feels he is on the cusp of bringing in his best class ever. Going to be interesting to see if FIU can steal some players from Miami.
