St. Thomas Aquinas running back Devonta'e Henry-Cole announced on Saturday that he is orally committing to Utah.
"I got along with coach [Dennis] Erickson and the coaching staff," the 5-9, 190-pound three-star prospect with 4.4 speed says. "It'a a great school academically and sports, and it's going to be a great feeling playing with my old St. Thomas teammates."
Henry-Cole chose Utah over a list of 11 other offers that included Pittsburgh, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, FIU and FAU.
He joins former Raider teammates Tyson Cisrow and Chris Hart on the Utes roster.
"[They tell me] that it was nice over there, it's different from Florida and the football program is amazing," Henry-Cole says.
Utah is getting a good one on and off the field.
"As a player, Devonta'e is an explosive, electrifying athlete with exceptional balance, vision and speed," St. Thomas Aquinas coach Roger Harriott says. "Off the field, he's a positive role model for his peers -- an extraordinary person in general. He's the epitome of a character athlete who is loved by all."
HARRISON COMMITS TO SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
A day earlier, Coconut Creek senior quarterback Jhakari Harrison announced a commitment to Southern Illinois.
The 6-1, 180-pound dual-threat quarterback that also had offers from Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman has been impressive throughout the spring and in 7-on-7 play, including a victory in the South Florida Shootout that UM hosted.
Once he joins the Salukis, he'll eventually compete with another Florida quarterback Southern Illinois took last recruiting cycle in Orlando's Tanner Hearn.
MARSHALL GETS SOUTH DADE LINEMAN
On Thursday, South Dade 2017 offensive guard Kryon Taylor committed to Marshall.
The 6-3, 285-pound junior was impressive in a spring game against Harrison and Coconut Creek in May, drawing the eyes of many coaches on hand.
He's also an elite wrestler as a state runner-up in the 285-pound division.
