Dillard track star Shakima Wimbley will choose Miami Hurricanes

 

flyon@MiamiHerald.com

A surprise visit from University of Miami women’s track coach Amy Deem to Dillard track star Shakima Wimbley’s home before Deem left to coach the U.S. Women’s Olympic team will pay off Saturday. That’s when Wimbley expects to sign with the Hurricanes.

Wimbley, a state runner-up in the 400 last season, said the personal touch Deem showed in her recruitment was the biggest factor in choosing the Hurricanes over Clemson and North Carolina.

“It was shocking,” Wimbley said. “I was like, ‘Wow,’ the U.S. Olympic coach was coming to my house before going to London. That motivated me to go out there and do my best.”

Landing Wimbley, one of the nation’s premier long sprinters, is considered a recruiting coup for the Hurricanes.

Wimbley set a personal best 54.53 in the 400 (No. 4 in the U.S.) on Wednesday and will face St. Thomas Aquinas’ two-time state champion Kendall Ellis (No. 6 in U.S.) in a BCAA championship showdown at Dillard on Saturday.

Wimbley will also put her 24.54 in the 200 (No. 15 in U.S.) on the line against Boyd Anderson’s Kali Davis-White (24.06, No. 4).

Wimbley will follow former Dillard teammate Jamika Glades to Coral Gables. Both are relative late bloomers who rose to All-American standards under Davidson Gill.

“Shakima came so far, and she is surprising a lot of people,” Gill said. “We want to try and break some records this year. We’re going to try and go 53 [seconds] in the 400 on Saturday. In the 200, she will do what she can. Nobody will get a pass.”
