West Hill (California) Chaminade OT commits to University of Miami football team

The Brad Kaaya pipeline is paying dividends for the Miami Hurricanes.

West Hill (California) Chaminade four-star offensive tackle Bar Milo — Class of 2015 — committed to the University of Miami on Wednesday night. Kaaya, the true freshman starting quarterback for the Hurricanes, recently graduated from Chaminade. Milo, 6-6, 300 pounds, is ranked the 32nd best offensive tackle by and 26th in 247Sports’ composite rankings.


The Hurricanes had the day off from practice Wednesday, but coach Al Golden spoke on the first Atlantic Coast Conference teleconference of the season.

He said there’s still a battle between freshman Kc McDermott, sophomore Taylor Gadbois and freshman Trevor Darling to see who will start at right tackle.

“We’ll let that play out this week,’’ Golden said.

Already projected to start on the line are, from left, tackle Ereck Flowers, guard Jon Feliciano, center Shane McDermott and guard Danny Isidora.

Golden was told by a reporter that a couple Hurricanes said they felt disrespected by the way Louisville played the second half of the game and maybe thought the Cards ran up the score. He was then asked if he finds “any sense of extra motivation from players given what happened at the bowl game.’’

“No, not at all,’’ Golden said of his team’s 36-9 loss. “Louisville played really well. They had an exceptional team. They only lost a couple times in two years. That was a great team [that] played really well. But, no, in terms of our program and their program, this is a different team for both and clearly we have to take care of our business, not worry about anybody else’s.”
