Carol City High sent the University of Miami football program some love Saturday when two Chiefs verbally committed to the recruiting class of 2018 – one of them a four-star running back.

Camron Davis, a running back listed by rivals.com as 5-9 and 187 pounds, is rated the 11th best prospect at his position for 2018. Davis is rated the No. 19 running back by 247Sports.

Safety Randy Russell, 5-11 and 175 pounds, was the other Carol City player who committed. Davis is rated by 247Sports as the No. 30 safety prospect.

Davis joins previous running-back commit Lorenzo Lingard, a fellow four-star prospect in that class.

“Me and Randy [Russell] talked about possibly committing together [Saturday],’’ Davis told CaneSport.com, “but we wanted to check it out first…My mom and dad loved it. My grandmother loved it…It’s a great school.’’

UM now has 11 commitments for its recruiting class of 2018, ranked third in the nation by both rivals and 247Sports.
