I have committed to the University of Miami... IM A CANE— Bar Milo (@Milo79Bar) August 27, 2014
The Brad Kaaya pipeline is paying dividend for the Miami Hurricanes.
West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade four-star offensive tackle Bar Milo – class of 2015 – committed to the University of Miami on Wednesday night.
Kaaya, the true freshman starting quarterback for the Hurricanes, recently graduated from Chaminade.
Milo, 6-6 and 300 pounds, told Rivals.com on Monday that “regardless of where I commit I promised my parents I’d keep my recruitment open and not be fully committed. But where I commit, that’s where I plan on going. I’d just stay open.’’ Milo added that “he’s taking into consideration’’ that his parents don’t want him to go too far from home.
His other finalists were Washington, Nebraska and ArizonaState.
Milo attended ‘U’ Day on an unofficial visit Aug 10. He watched the Canes practice and told 247Sports.com that Kaaya was “fantastic. He only says good things about Miami – how fantastic he’s been treated and how it’s a family atmosphere. He thinks it would be a great fit for me.’’
Milo is ranked the 32nd best offensive tackle by Rivals and the 26th in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
He is the seventh offensive lineman to commit for 2015, a class that now has 23 commits, according to 247Sports. On Tuesday, Under-Armour All-American kicker Andrew Galitz decommitted from Miami and committed to Baylor.
“I have officially decommited from the University of Miami,’’ he posted on Twitter. “I would like to thank the coaching staff for recruiting me.’’
If he follows through and signs with UM, Milo would be the third Hurricane out of West Hills Chaminade. Kicker Matt Goudis also went there.
