Canes land commitment from kicker

The Miami Hurricanes have themselves a new kicker.

Matt Goudis, a former Michigan commitment and senior at West Hill Chaminade, Calif., told Canesport.com Sunday he has pledged to join the Hurricanes' 2011 class after visiting the campus this weekend.

Goudis (6-0, 165 pounds) is ranked the No. 12 kicker in the country by Rivals.com and the No. 5 kicker by Scout.com. Goudis made 12-of-16 field goals as a senior, including a long of 55 yards.

UM is losing All-ACC First Team specialist and senior Matt Bosher to graduation. Bosher handled the punting and kicking duties for the last three years. The Hurricanes received a commitment from Moorpark Community College's (Calif.) Dalton Botts before the Sun Bowl. Botts (6-3, 200) is expected to handle the punting duties.

Gadbois becomes UM's ninth commitment for the 2011 signing class. National Signing Day is Feb. 2.

> South Ft. Myers High School defensive back Dallas Crawford, who visited UM this weekend, told Canesport.com he's moved UM up to No. 1 on his list.

Asked how far in front the Canes are, Crawford said "I don't know till I go to North Carolina next week and Southern Cal the 28th."
