Miami scored its second huge commitment of the day when Dewan Huell picked the Hurricanes over South Carolina.
The 6-foot-10 Huell is ranked the No. 7 power forward in the Class of 2016 by 247Sports.com. He joined shooting guard Bruce Brown of Vermont Academy, who committed to Miami over Indiana Wednesday morning. Miami also has a pledge from Oak Hill Academy (VA) big man Rodney Miller.
Huell has won three straight state championships at Miami (FL) Norland and is seeking a fourth straight.
“I’m getting better at getting the ball at the top of the post and attacking,” Huell told MiamiNewsChannel.com. “I still need to work on my strength, especially after what I saw battling in the paint all summer.”
