Plantation American Heritage senior Scott Wade, the first team All-Broward kicker for both The Herald and Sun-Sentinel, last year Tweets that he's now committed to FIU. FIU has one scholarship left for this year if it wants to use it. Wade hit a pedestrian nine of 16 field goal attempts this year, but one of the nine was a 52-yarder. He averaged 41.3 yards per punt.
After Jack Griffin's erratic senior year in 2012 -- see what fatherhood can do to you? -- and a year of wildly erratic kicking and kickoffs from freshmen, solid kicking would be even a small hook on which FIU could hang its scoring pants.
FIU football coach Ron Turner attended Saturday's baseball game with some of his family. I couldn't help thinking, boy, he's looking anywhere for offense, huh?
