I'm covering the UM-Notre Dame baseball game now at Mark Light Field (with the Irish leading 7-1 after six-and-a-half innings), but wanted to report that four-star running back Jordan Cronkrite just announced via Twitter that he has committed to the University of Miami -- freshman class of 2015.
Cronkrite, out of Miami Westminster Christian and listed as 5-11 and 199 pounds, was also offered by Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson and Cincinnati, according to 247Sports.com.
Rivals.com has him ranked 15th at his position.
247Sports has him at No. 22.
The Hurricanes no doubt need a talented tailback after next season, when Duke Johnson will likely be off to the NFL Draft if he has a great 2014 season.
