Top defensive tackle decommits from Miami Hurricanes

Defensive tackle Michael Wyche, a key oral commitment in the University of Miami’s recruiting class, announced on Twitter that he is decommitting from Miami because of an obscure ACC rule that requires players be enrolled three semesters at the same junior college.

Wyche, who was enrolled for only two semesters at East Los Angeles Junior College, had appealed the ruling, but apparently unsuccessfully. Wyche could have stayed committed to UM and enrolled here in May but apparently has chosen not to, at least at this point.

Meanwhile, Brad Kaaya — rated the nation’s No. 8 quarterback by — announced he will sign with UM on Wednesday.
