Come on Fanatic, add him to the commitments already haha.

Also we can now say that we genuinely beat Alabama (and everyone else in the country) for a recruit.

Done, my brother, DONE! And Yes, we can say we beat out Alabama and Oklahoma State for a recruit in a genuine way. Just old-fashioned, hard working, step-by-step recruiting. We got him.

Unbelievable, quite frankly. And I say, if he wants to take a few snaps at QB, let him.

More stories on his commitment to FIU around the nation: http://fanbuzz.com/college-football/tay ... tment-fiu/


Excerpt:

Quote:
Well this isn’t a usual destination for four-star recruits, but defensive tackle Tayland Humphrey has made a decision that will rock the college football recruiting world.

On Friday, Humphrey (6-foot-5, 350 pounds, Spring, TX) announced that he had committed to Florida International over offers from schools like Alabama, Louisville and Oklahoma State.

As Humphrey mentioned in his Twitter post, his younger brother is currently committed to FIU, and it looks like the big defensive tackle will be making his way down to southern Florida as well.

This is an incredible recruiting win for FIU head coach Butch Davis — yes, that Butch Davis — as his Panthers will hope to build on an 8-4 season in 2017. FIU was ranked 90th in recruiting before Humphrey, and they will likely move up a sizable amount after the commit from him and from highly-ranked three-star Jamal Anderson.

Humphrey is ranked as a four-star and as the No. 8 JUCO recruit in the nation by 247Sports. He’s likely the highest-rated recruit to ever commit to Florida International.

Watershed moment for the program, this can certainly be the beginning of new perception of FIU and finally landing elite prospects that focus on what FIU can be as opposed to what we have been. Congratulations to the coaching staff for their hard work thus far on the recruiting trail securing what already looks like an amazing class for 2018. Welcome to FIU John and Tayland!!! Just the sauce we needed on both D and O lines...Nice write up here:

Exactly! Landing the Saucy brothers, of course with Tayland as the headliner, could potentially be the start of a turning point for our program. Could others rated very highly join in as well? We shall see, but as the saying goes: in Butch we trust.

Go Panthers!!
