Miami officially welcomed a key member to the Storm 18 class on Sunday afternoon as Al Blades, Jr. announced his decision to become a Hurricane on Father's Day.
Blades, a four-star defensive back prospect from St. Thomas Aquinas HS, was long rumored to be committing to Miami today as an ode to his late father, Al Blades, who played at The U as well as his uncles Bennie and Brian.
He announced his decision with this post on Twitter:
Blades joins a loaded Canes DB class of safeties Josh Jobe and Gurvan Hall, and cornerbacks D.J. Ivey and Gilbert Frierson. Blades is being recruited to play corner at Miami. He is the 18th commitment in UM's 2nd-ranked class on 247sports.com.
