Dillard linebacker and 2017 UM commit Tyler Dunning did an exclusive video interview with the Miami Herald at the UM 7-on-7 last Sunday.
Since it's hard to hear with all the blaring music, here are some of his quotes.
Why did you decide to commit to UM when you did?
"I felt it was a good opportunity to come here and it was already close to home," Dunning says. "I like everything about the school. I like the vibe, I like everything."
Dunning says he's even trying to recruit his teammates on a talented Dillard defense -- most notably 2017 defensive end Jon Ford, who has a Miami offer and 2016 defensive tackle Aaron Thompson and linebacker Kenneth Ruff, who are waiting on UM offers.
"I tell them all the time that if they come we're going to bring the U back, there isn't any point in leaving," Dunning says.
Dunning adds Ruff is considering South Carolina and Thompson LSU, but "if Miami offers, they're going to come."
He says other schools coming on strong are FAU, FIU, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina but adds "I'm all Cane right now. My decision isn't changing right now."
