I think Coach Holmes should really be applauded for the job he did here. He built a fantastic relationship with Tayland and is family early on. We had both Tayland and John taking an official visit as early as July. In order to get big fish like Tayland, that's the kind of work you have to put in. This is also why many said you have to give Butch a full year (at least) before you can evaluate his recruiting classes. It's not that he couldn't find these guys in last year's class, but you need TIME to build the relationships with these guys to the point where they are comfortable signing with you. It's reasons like this that the summer football camps are important for building relationships with the not just the incoming seniors, but the underclassmen!

As others have said, Tayland will make an immediate impact next season at a position where we really need more size. I really encourage those on this board to watch his film:

He's a dominant player. Remember that for next season, we also get another 4-star D-lineman, Jordan Woods, eligible to play. I'm really excited about our D-line for the first time in a long time.

Anyway, welcome to FIU, Tayland. Really excited to have him onboard.

For reference, Tayland Humphrey has the highest 247 Sports composite rating of any G5 commit this year. Also, FIU and Boise St. are the only G5 programs with a 247 Sports composite 4-star commit.

More press on Tayland coming to FIU:

If you ever doubted Butch Davis’ ability to recruit shame on you. Earlier this week the FIU Panthers picked up perhaps the highest-rated commit in school history, as one of the best Junior College defensive tackles in the country has decided to take his talents to Miami.
