Since decommitting for the University of Miami football team after the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 4 in San Antonio, Travonte Valentine has wanted nothing but clarity from his future coaching staff at the next level.
Valentine, who told the Miami Herald he wanted a sit down conversation with UM coach Al Golden to gauge Golden’s stance with the program, said Saturday he was going to stop by the UM campus that night to have that talk.
The four-star Hialeah Champagnat Catholic defensive tackle did visit the school, according to his high school coach Mike Tunsil on Sunday. Tunsil said he did not speak with Valentine after reaching campus Saturday night.
Valentine did have a reassuring in-home visit from Canes defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio, defensive line coach Jethro Franklin, and running backs coach Hurlie Brown on Thursday -- despite LSU and Texas also sitting atop his list.
