Canes land commitment from 6-4, 203-pound, 3-star WR Tyre Brady of South Dade

Tyre Brady said he always used to tell his grandfather he was going to follow in the footsteps of Andre Johnson, his favorite player, and becoming a Hurricane.

Friday afternoon Brady made that dream a reality when he and his high school coach Nate Hudson called Hurricanes coaches as they were on their way to Duke to tell them he wanted to be their 29th commitment for the 2014 singing class.

UM receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Brennan Carroll sent out his usual "Welcome To The U" alert around 12:30 p.m., shortly after Brady said Hurricanes coaches told him they were pumped to hear the news.

Rated a three-star recruit by both Rivals and 247Sports.com, Brady is a raw, but fast and big 6-4, 203-pound receiver. He said he was timed running the 40-yard dash at 4.44 seconds this summer when he participated in a football camp at Alabama. Brady said he chose UM over offers from Florida, Florida State, Arkansas and Ole Miss.

"It was a long time coming," Hudson said. "He has tremendous versatility, plays both ways for us. But this summer he really mastered the receiver position at camps. Not all high school guys come out well-polished and he has some things to work on. He has to improve adjusting to the football, route running can get a little sharper. Other than that, he hasn't disappointed us at all."

Brady, who has 24 catches for 412 yards and six touchdowns as well as two kick returns for touchdowns, is already a full qualifier according to Hudson and will enroll at UM in August. 

"They think I can come in and help right away," Brady said. "Me being the biggest receiver they'll have at 6-4, 203, that's what I want to do."

U great job keep them coming

Best of luck Mr Brady, Welcome to The U!!


Excellent pickup, South Dade has done better than ever in part because of this uncoverable fast and strong WR.

Three stars, yet teams like the gatrs and noles were going after him? I think he is an under-the-radar player like we used to get, that the TEAMS know is a big star, but the services ignored because he was outside their usual teams.

Welcome To The U!

Welcome to ths "U"

That height and 4.4 speed...great pick up.

Brick by brick that's how you build something solid. I love these kids that want to play for the "U".

Look who he can be expected to replace.

1 Allen Hurns WR 6-3 195 Sr. Miami, Fla. (Carol City HS) 40 Low: 4.45 40 Time: 4.56 40 High: 4.66

2 Tyre Brady WR 6-4 203 Fr. Miami, Fla. (South Dade HS) 40 4.44

Taller, stronger, AND faster than our current star Hurns.


A steal from the South Side of the State of Miami. The haters were focussing on the edges to the notrh, like Okechobee, while the south side was locked up by the Canes.

Woo Hoo Welcome brady!

Way to make your Grand Pa proud and hope you're better than Andre Johnson.

Tyre help us get over the hump and WIN the ACC, and then the sky's the limit from there. Welcome to DA U Family.

A 3 star Miami recruit is a 5 star elsewhere in the country! He's going to be a star because I say that about every recruit who commits to The U! We will have a class of 33 recruits and single handly fix our depth issues with one class!

Welcome to the 'Canes Tyre.

You and your family should be proud to be part of something that you have grown to respect and cherish.

Always strive for the best and Andre undoubtedly is.

Fast, Tall, Rangy, with Good Hands. Use your talent, and study hard. You will be part of the 'Canes.
Go 'Canes

Welcome to the U baby.

That is great you are staying in Miami. I know you will do great with the better replacement head coach, after next year.

Great get Big Al!!

The Canes are on the road to recovery with the 3 year NCAA persecution in the rearview mirror.

Tyre Brady is a fast, strong, physical, rangy receiver who will add another dimension to the Canes offense.

Before singing day comes Tyre will be elevated to a 4 or possibly a 5 star prospect.


Gotta love a 6'4", 200-lb. WR

And you know he was watching how the gatrs wasted their tall WRs in Demarcus Robinson and Ahmad Fulwood, while Miami is turning Hurns into a star.

Best way to pick the place to go? Look at the Miami pass catchers in the NFL, and then at the fsu and uf pass catchers in the NFL. Do you want to be the next Andre Johnson, or the next Aaron Hernandez.

To have the opportunity to play for the University of Miami is a great blessing. Living in the area is added fuel for success. Now be the dominate star you were meant to be. Do not let one of the worst Miami head coaches, since the dynasty began, hold you back. I am sure my foresight of Al Golden's inferior skills will be seen, next year this time. He can then get his walking papers and a better replacement will be found.

Welcome to the family! It's exciting to have an enthusiastic kid like this coming to the U! HIs aspirations are high...Andre Johnson is my all time favorite Cane, not only for his incredible talent, but for his class and the respect he commands both on and off the field. This young man has chosen the right place, at the right time, with the RIGHT coaches! The sky is the limit Tyre!

You will not be disappointed U M is a great university .
Andre Johnson and family will be proud of you .

To have the opportunity to play for the University of Miami is a great blessing. Living in the area is added fuel for success. Now be the dominate star you were meant to be. Do not let me, one of the worst Miami fans ever, since the dynasty began, hold you back with my ignorance and lies. I am sure my idiotic comments concerning Al Golden's skills will once again prove I am a fool. I can then get my walking papers and a find another blog to lie about Canes football.

Welcome in son, be proud to be a Cane for life. Not many people have that opportunity make the best of it. U won't regret the choice made today.

Welcome to the U... not only did u choose the best school, U will be part of something big next year.

with this guy and darell langham who is 6-4,6-5ish we can start getting some height at that wide reciever position just like florida state

Three stars, should be five. Awesome kid and hell of uh job by Al Golden. All you haters like reality bites at the gay bar cn suck it . CANES!

The link from the Sports section says "Miami signs" - this kid is an oral commitment or signed a LOI?

Pitiful. Outcoached and outplayed by Duke!!! Don't care if they beat V-tech which stinks this year they're still Duke. We've hit rock bottom my friends.

Could of picked FSU and been a Seminole for 4 years: Could of picked UF and been a Gator for 4 years. You picked The U and became a Cane for life: Welcome to the greatest tradition and greatest football family on earth. Study hard and play harder: we need ya!

How can golden say defense played great gave up 483 yard?
