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!!

Well, 247Sports just updated their database, and awarded Gloster a grade of 81, thus becoming another 3-Stars player for our current recruiting class.

Theodore Richardson III, a 6'0/175 WR from Miami's Booker T. Washington HS, just committed to FIU in twitter. Reportedly chose FIU over offers from Toledo, Southern Miss, and Rhode Island. Comes from a great, national-level program at Booker T. which is always great to get kids from our backyard. As of this moment, T. Richardson is unrated and unranked by any recruiting service. He becomes FIU's Class of 2020's 8th known commitment in our list.

Back at this.

On June 27, FIU got its 9th known commitment from 6'2/170 DB, Andrew Volmar. The 247Sports 3-Stars player from American Heritage HS in Plantation, reportedly picked FIU over offers from Rutgers, Temple, Southern Miss, and FAU.

Last June 30th, we got another great local commitment via twitter. This time it was 6'2/205 DE/LB from Northwestern HS in Miami, Wati Huggins. Huggins, who last season played for Booker T. Washington (another local national power in football), reportedly had 23 sacks, with 85 tackles and 4 forced fumbles as a junior at Booker T. last year. He chose FIU over reported offers from Pitt, Syracuse, Baylor, Southern Miss, and Utah State, becoming FIU's 10th known commitment for the Class of 2020. Last season he was a Class 5A Independent 1st Team All Dade County.

Welcome to FIU, Wati!!

This past Friday, August 16th, Kejon Owens, a 5'10/175 RB from Miami Central HS, became FIU's 11th known commitment for the class of 2020. Owens, a 247Sports, Rivals, and ESPN (grade 76) 3-Stars, reportedly chose FIU over offers from Pitt, Louisville, Kentucky, Syracuse, UCF, Tulane, FAU, and Southern Miss.

With the addition of Theodore Richardson (grade 72), Andrew Volmar (grade 72), Haden Carlson (grade 74), and Wati Huggins (grade 72) to the ESPN recruiting database, every single recruit si far is 3-Stars rated in at least one of the “Big 3” recruiting websites.

As such, our known commitment list at the top of this thread is now updated to reflect this.

Thanks for the heads up, ‘Building’!

Darius Stokes, a 5'10/185 DB/Safety from Miami Carol City HS, has committed to FIU after his second tweet announcing it. Darius, a 247 Sports and ESPN (grade 74) 3-Stars player, committed to FIU over reported offer from fellow C-USA team Southern Miss. Somewhat undersized to play safety, Stokes more than compensates with strength and solid hits defensively, as his highlight films show. He becomes FIU's Class of 2020's 12th known commitment, and from those 12 a whopping 10 are from South Florida area high schools (including Palm Beach County).

Welcome to FIU, Darius!

While only 12 commitments known so far, and still very early in recruiting cycle, we can state that with the latest commitment of Darius Stokes, it's very telling and interesting the fact that not only is this class (on paper) perhaps the highest rated ever by 247Sports in terms of average per player at 83.60, but most of them are local guys. The highest rated class by FIU on 247Sports so far was class of 2019 with 82.55, and then 2018 with 82.50 average. Prior to that, the highest one was Class of 2009 at 81.79. However, the most telling stat from this early class is the fact that 10 out of 12 commitments so far come from the tri-county South Florida area of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami Dade. That's 83.33% of them so far. Pretty good class coming up to this point.

Go Panthers!

Rivaldo Fairweather, a 6'5/220 TE from Boyd Anderson HS in Lauderdale Lakes, committed to FIU this past Monday, to become the 13th known commitment so far this recruiting cycle. Fairweather reportedly has an offer from WKU as well as to FIU, after registering 40 catches, with 812 yards receiving and 15 TD's this season. He looks very strong and imposing with this size, and fairly athletic as well, perhaps in part due to his also being a basketball star player for his high school and AAU teams.

Note: While he becomes FIU's 13th known commitment in our list, it appears we have one "silent" commitment so far, as coaches and recruiting staff member celebrated another commitment several days prior. Now, it shows 14 "Paws", very likely meaning 14 commitments, according to those of us who followed this closely.

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


Haden is now rated, not only by ESPN, but 247Sports also has e him a high 3-Stars rating. Duly adjusted in our list of known commits.

Richardson was also rated, not only by ESPN, but by 247Sports, as a 3-Stars player. Updated in our known commitment list at the top of this thread accordingly.

247 Also recently rated Jose Mirabal and gave him an 83 rating, that lowered his composite rating to .8566, still best in our class but much less than the .8701 he was before.
