SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep Top100 defensive end Alquadin Muhammad announced his verbal commitment to Miami during Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Muhammad becomes the 13th pledge for Coach Al Golden and the Hurricanes in the class-of-2013.
"I think I am going to take my talents to the University of Miami," Muhammad told the NBC telecast. "They showed a lot of support and they were hungry [while they recruited me]. I went and visited and they came to see me soon after that and they showed me a lot of commitment."
He chose Miami over his other finalists Alabama and Notre Dame.
“The Canes are a great program,” Muhammad told 247Sports earlier this week. He took an official to Miami the weekend of Dec. 7. “It’s not too far from home. They have great players and great coaches. It’s a great place to be at. It’s warm.”
Ranked as the country’s No. 5 strong-side defensive end and No. 68 prospect overall according to the 247Composite, Muhammad is the sixth four-star commit for Miami, and fifth ranked inside the Top247. He had 64 tackles, 12 sacks and four forced fumbles as a senior.
