Canes get 2018 commitment from Killian receiver

Killian sophomore wide receiver Daquris Wiggins committed to UM on Wednesday after initially receiving an offer in the spring.

"I felt like I liked the environment there, and I felt like that's where I need to be," Wiggins said. "I like the coaching staff. I like how it's going there."

Wiggins is a big target at 6-3. He caught two touchdowns in an upset victory over South Dade last Thursday.

Miami is the only school thus far to offer the tall, athletic sure-handed receiver who adds that FSU and Purdue are showing plenty of interest and may be close to offering.

Wiggins says he likes how the Cane coaches look out for him, stressing the importance of academics to him and giving him drills he should try on his own.

UM now has six players committed in its 2018 class -- all from Florida.

Wiggins joins 2017 running back and teammate Bentavious Thompson as Cougars committed to play with the Hurricanes. 

Last recruiting cycle UM signed a pair of defensive backs from Killian in Jaquan Johnson and Sheldrick Redwine. Current Miami Dolphin Lamar Miller is also a player that went from the K to the U.

"[Johnson and Redwine] told me they like it. It's hard work. I've got to go over there and work hard if I want to go," Wiggins said. "I just have to stay focused and do everything that I need to do and get better every day."
