LB Alex Figueroa Commits to Miami

1CN
The Miami Hurricanes have added their 11th commitment to the 2013 Class. This one came completely off-the-radar, as it wasn't until last night that there was word Alex Figueroa from Stafford, Virginia was on campus for a visit. One day later, he committed.

Figueroa posted on his twitter account on Saturday night, "officially a Miami hurricane."

Figueroa's story is a unique one, as he graduated from Brooke Point high school in Virginia this year. He had signed with Division II school Shepherd in West Virginia due to the fact he could not qualify academically for a Division-1 program. Figueroa instead decided to take this semester to improve his academic situation. He had planned to attend Fork Union Military Academy before tearing his labrum in an All-Star game in July, so then enrolled in a community college to focus on academics.

At Miami, he figures to use his versatility on the defensive side of the ball. While many may speculate this could be a bad sign for Miami's hopes with Matthew Thomas, this does not mean anything as far as that situation goes. The staff is "stacking chips" on the defensive side of the ball and Figueroa can play a multitude of positions.

In his senior year, Figueroa recorded 107 tackles (74 solo) with 11 for loss and 9 sacks. He also caught 54 passes for 612 yards and 6 TDs. The Washington Post named him to the All-Met 1st team in his senior season.

Here are Figueroa's highlights: http://www.hudl.com/athlete/619990/highlights/2516406

Nice! Guy seems like he could be 245-250 here in a couple of years being used all over the field.
