Miami Booker T. Washington cornerback Nigel Bethel II decommitted from the University of Miami on Wednesday night and announced Thursday that he’s heading to Texas Tech.
Bethel, rated a four-star prospect by Rivals and ESPN, said he knew he wanted to flip his pledge for “about two months now.” He informed UM head coach Al Golden, linebackers coach Micheal Barrow and defensive backs coach Paul Williams before announcing his new pledge on Twitter a day later.
“I felt the opportunity at Texas Tech was great for me,” Bethel said. “I felt like I wanted to leave Miami and take my talents elsewhere.

Miramar cornerback Tyrek Cole – an underrated four-star prospect by several media outlets – committed to FSU on Thursday night, becoming the sixth member of the Seminoles Class of 2015 recruiting class.
“I’m committed to Florida State,” Cole told the Miami Herald around an hour and a half before announcing his decision via his Twitter account. “I just like the program, Coach Jimbo [Fisher] and I felt like I go and play early, and I just want to win games. They win games.”
Calvin Brewton knew he wanted to play football at Florida State University ever since he received a scholarship offer from the school before his sophomore season at Miami Central.
Late Wednesday night, Brewton – a Class of 2015 safety rated four-star prospect by 247Sports and three starts by Rivals and ESPN – orally committed to FSU. The news was first reported by 247Sports.
“From an academic standpoint, from a football standpoint, to the fan base, the atmosphere – everything about the Noles stood out,” Brewton said to the Miami Herald.
