Big Louisville 2014 target 4-star DT Travonte Valentine out of Champagnat Catholic in Miami has committed to Miami tonight per his facebook account. This is quite convenient considering one of Miami's top freshman DT's was officially removed from the team last night. Valentine committed to Louisville last summer for a short time before committing to Florida only to de-commit a couple months later. I actually thought we had a great shot at landing him since he is teammates and friends with current Louisville commit Michael Johnson. This news is also concerning considering his high school head coach said Johnson and Valentine would like to play in college together. Before tonight I thought the two places that they could play together at would be Louisville or LSU, who was pursuing both very hard. Who knows, by signing he could be wearing a cardinal hat but those chances are slim to none right about now. Charlie and the staff will most likely still be in contact with Valentine, but go after a couple other big time DT's such as Poona Ford who has Louisville in his final 3 and Daniel Cage who most think is a favorite for Louisville.
Recruiting is wierd.
