Youngest Patchan follows dad's footsteps with UM commitment after older brother snubbed Canes back in '08

Matt Patchan's youngest son, Scott, a 6-6, 238-pound four-star defensive end at Tampa Freedom High, has decided to follow in the footsteps of his father and commit to the University of Miami.

Scott Patchan made the announcement Saturday afternoon on his Twitter account by posting a picture of himself with UM coaches (see it below).

Six years ago his older brother Matt, a U.S. Army All-American defensive tackle, picked the Florida Gators over the Hurricanes, much to chagrin of UM fans. He ended up transferring from Florida and having a standout season at Boston College this past year, earning All-ACC Second Team honors.

UM also landed a commitment from 6-foot, 190-pound running back Dexter Williams of Orlando West Orange High School. He pulled a Patchan posed in a photo with UM coaches (see it below).

Williams ran for 1,072 yards and three touchdowns on 180 carries last season for Orlando Olympia High. Williams is rated a four-star recruit by 247Sports.com and the 11th best running back in the country by the same website. Williams is considered a special athlete. He won the Nike SPARQ combine in Orlando in February with an overall score of 117. He ran the 40-yard dash there in 4.54 seconds.

1st you mother fletchers...wwwoooooooooooooooo

Two 4-star recruits in one weekend...nice...i'd like to see us pick up 12-15 of those 70 or so 4 and 5-star Florida recruits this year.

The 2015 class is shaping up nicely. Two very promising commits. Patchan adds further depth to the DE position, and Williams bolsters the RBs. We are building a solid 2-deep roster - something we haven't had here in a while. Time to get out of the habit of making true Freshman play out of necessity.

We've finally got a group of LBs that I like. Just need to focus on getting the DTs back up to our standards.
