Corey Gaynor commits to Miami

The Miami Hurricanes just picked up a commitment from Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS OL Corey Gaynor.

[TWEET]803653245772111872[/TWEET]

Miami offered Gaynor on Saturday prior to the game against Duke and view him as the potential center of the future. Coaches will in-home visit with him on Friday. He was previously committed to Minnesota before the game.

Multiple local coaches have described Gaynor as "nasty" and "not a guy you want to face". He joins an offensive class of Navaughn Donaldson, Zach Dykstra, and Zalon'tae Hillery. The Canes are also still heavily pursuing Kai-Leon Herbert and Tedarrell Slaton of American Heritage.

3 star but we need these nasty o line guys...we have a bunch of soft dudes. Good for replacing some attrition that will happen.

On Rivals. Rivals hasn't been taken seriously since like 2007. 247 and ESPN have him as a 3. Not that he is a world beater by any means, but give credit where credit is due.

Hear the want to groom him at centre. We need some big nasty O-Linemen.... I think he will be a good fit at C.

I like this kid's film but I am not gonna lie...I'll be disappointed if our only interior OL in this cycle are Dykstra and this kid.

He'll probably be a solid contributor as a center in year 2 or 3. Red-shirt and get your strength and weight up and then do work. Welcome to the U!

For you star whores and kids new to recruiting:

Projected centers tend to be lower ranked than tackles or even guards, this is a miami caliber recruit. Relax.

Plays like he's in a fight. We desperately need that upfront. Welcome.

Wow, that kid punishes people. That is one mean MF'er. Im excited to see him develop.

I guarantee there will be some Green Tree tussles with him on the line.

This kid is filthy. He's the type of OL to make a DL quit trying.

Love the pickup. You always like lineman to play with a mean streak and he definitely does

Lol. Every person this dude touches ends up on their backs being piledrived into the ground. Underrated.

Stars are well-nigh useless when evaluating OL, IMO. What I look for is footwork, hands, leverage/balance, burst, and aggression.

This kid has some major nasty in him. I like his footwork in the power/pulling guard game. Pretty good balance in pass protection. He locks up with defenders well, though I'd like to see a bit more technique out of his hands (sometimes it looks like he's just shoulder-charging or wrestling defenders to the ground.) Anybody know what his competition level is?
