Tamarick Best, a 6'1/225 DE/LB from Pahokee HS, committed online on January 28, 2020 to FIU. He was the first known commitment on FIU's Class of 2020. He has an offer from Southern Miss besides FIU publicly. Since he committed so early there's been no more news regarding him, but 247Sports still lists him as a commitment, so I will start with his name as this class first commitment. He's not rated by any recruiting website yet.

Welcome to FIU, Tamarick!

Haden Carlson, a 6''3/190 QB from Steinbrenner HS in Tampa, FL, committed to FIU yesterday on twitter. The son of former Tampa Bay Bucs and NE Patriots QB Jeff Carlson, Haden committed. Currently he is not rated by any service, but his film is pretty good.

Welcome to FIU, Haden

Jose Mirabal, a 6'5/320 OL from South Dade HS, has committed to FIU, according to a tweet he put out tonight. The 247Sports , Rivals, and ESPN (grade 76) 3-Stars player appears to be a great pickup for FIU, as he picked FIU over offers from Florida, Georgia, FSU, Georgia Tech, Tennesse, Indiana, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Pitt, USF, West Virginia, FAU, WKU, Tulane, Southern Miss, and Arkansas State, among others. He is the 247Sports Composite #75 overall rated player in the state of Florida, currently. Huge pickup this early.

Welcome to FIU, Jose!!

Thanks for making this thread! Picking up Mirabal tonight was huge! I also suspect we have a fourth “silent” commit right now, in addition to the three listed.

The number of paws keeps increasing and check out the FIU football Twitter response:

I say get about 15 more like Mirabal on both sides of the line and worry about all the rest later. Awesome. It's just like P.T. Barnum said, "If you ain't got elephants, there isn't going to be any circus."

Xavier McGriff, a 6-2/182 WR from Baldwin HS in Jacksonville has just made public his commitment to FIU via twitter. The consensus 3-Stars player reportedly chose FIU over very impressive offer list that includes FSU, Nebraska, Oregon, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Boston College, Wake Forest, Duke, Rutgers, Indiana, Cincinnati, Iowa State, UCF, Kentucky, Colorado, State, FAU, Marshall, Ohio, Troy, Temple, and South Alabama. Impressive.

247Sports ranks Xavier as the state's overall #72 ranked player, adding another Top 100 to our very early list of commits for the class of 2020. As a Junior last year, Xavier was named a 3rd team All First Coast as a WR after having 43 catches for 774 yards and 9 receiving TD's. Also had 1 running TD. He as named a Class 3A floridahsfootball.com 2nd Team All State player as well. With his commitment, Xavier becomes FIU's 4th known commitment for this class.

It appears we got yet another commitment in. Another tweet from FIU Director of Recruiting, Nick Stullmuller, this time with 5 Paws. Expect to read about it soon.

Bobby Washington, a 5'10/300 DL from St. Thomas Aquinas HS in Ft. Lauderdale committed yesterday to FIU, via twitter. Washington, a 247Sports Composite and ESPN (not graded yet) 3-Stars player, committed to FIU apparently right after visiting FIU unofficially. Reportedly chose FIU over offers from Louisville and Southern Miss. He shows extreme power and speed in his highlight film. Always good to land a good player from such a storied program as St. Thomas Aquinas since it might help in recruiting down the line. He was a Class 8A Honorable Mention All Broward last season as a junior. He becomes FIU's 5th known commitment so far for the 2020 recruiting class.

Shykieim Gloster, a 6'3/210 DE/LB from Monsignor Pace HS in Miami, committed publicly to FIU yesterday. Last season at Norland HS he reportedly had 24 tackles and 2 sacks as a junior. He becomes at this time the 6th known commitment of this 2020 classs. He is unrated at this moment from any recruiting service and not much information available that I could find online.

Welcome to FIU, Shykieim!!

Jahmari Sylvester, a 6'6/298 OL from St. Thomas Aquinas HS commited to FIU last night. With his public commitment last night, Sylvester becomes the second commitment from local national perennial powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas, along with Bobby Washington. To establish a pipeline with St. Thomas, along with Central and Booker T. that we already have established...perhaps trying to get Carol City players as well.....will go a long way for recruiting purposes in the near future, hopefully.

Sylvester chose us, over Indiana, Purdue, Pitt, Maryland, Missouri, USF, Southern Miss, as well as over academic stalwarts Brown and Georgetown. So, it appears that the 247Sports, ESPN(not graded yet) and Rivals 3-Stars player is a good student as well. He becomes FIU's 7th known commitment to date.
