Newest commit Stuckey talks flip from FSU

Peter Ariz
Miami’s never-ending search for defensive linemen took a surprising turn a couple weeks ago, when former 2012 FSU signee Dalvon Stuckey announced he was flipping to the ‘Canes. Stuckey, who played last season at Pearl River Community College in Mississippi, spoke about his transition from the high school to junior college level.

“When I first got there, it was kinda hard, but I got used to it and now I’m just coasting through. I think it helps me grow and mature because I don’t think I was ready mentally to go straight D-1. Junior College made me work harder and change my mind on some things,” said Stuckey.

Stuckey is ecstatic about the chance to play for Miami.

“It feels real good because at Miami I know I’ll have the opportunity to play a lot and go to the league. The Florida State fans don’t really like it, but it feels good.”

Growing up near Tallahassee, Stuckey’s family didn’t see the switch coming.

“My mom was kinda surprised because I grew up a Florida State fan, but she told me that my family will support me no matter what I do and it’s still in Florida so it’s not bad at all.”

The 6’4”, 300-lb defensive tackle broke down how Miami came into the picture for him.

“Miami had been recruiting me since my junior year, but I had been committed to Florida State since my sophomore year so Miami wasn’t really trying too hard with me. Coach Jethro (Franklin) came up to see me and he said all the right things and it made me think about my future so I decided to switch to the U.”

What else did Stuckey like about the ‘Canes?

“They have a lot of tradition and a lot of their players go on to have successful careers in the NFL.”

When asked to describe his ability, Stuckey was quick to the point.

“I’m a run-stopper. I stop anything that’s coming to me.”

Better an FSU fan who will play for us than a UM fan who won't
 
The new trend in recruiting is when a kid mentions a school that he grew up a fan of, you can immediately cross them off his list.

Oh, and what's with this guy's picture on the front page? Why's he so happy? Is that his e-harmony profile pic?

I know Oh Snap just joking (atleast I hope) but I see what some say about us cane fans, we can never be happy. We our literally is dire need for DT and you wont take a kid cuz he grew up in tally and was a fan of the home team? Wonder how UGA fans feel about Sony, or Bama about Cooper, or the other hundreds of example, smh...

Thank god because that's exactly what we need!
 
Grew up an FSU fan. DO NOT WANT.

REALLY!!!!!!
Let me get this right.......because he grew up an FSU fan you don't want him (a run stopper) at the U? You're joking, right? Yeah, you're joking. You are joking, right?
 
I swear some of you guys are so ready to call someone a jackass or a moron that you end up looking like the jackass. Smh. You didnt see the sarcasm there? Dang..Chill out..I know its Manic Monday but damn.

Anyway, if he is 6'3 300 and likes to stop the run and his nickname is NOT "the Plug" then sign him up! There isnt much to sell here. If you are a DE or DT and can play ball YOU WILL see playing time in the 2 deep here. Period. No if,ands, or buts about it. If recruits cant see that then they just dont like UM or they are misinformed. Im fine with either one. Glad this kid saw the light.
 
Yeah I meant to ask that too..Is this kid coming in the Fall or do we have to wait until next year for his much needed services?

Thanks. Seemed pretty obvious Oh Snap was joking. I think the UM culture is so strong that it doesn't matter if a kid grew up hating the 'Canes, he will bleed Orange and Green by the time he is done. Culture is contagious and I think we have the best in the country and it all starts with the man in charge.
