The list of Miami Hurricanes commits continues to grow.

Former Mississippi State commit, Thomas Davis, committed to UM on Monday, choosing them over South Carolina and Florida State.

Davis, a three-star outside linebacker, originally committed to the Bulldogs back in April before receiving an offer from one of his “dream schools” in May.

His commitment comes just a day after Miami made adjustments to their 2021 offense, landing a commitment from three-star wide receiver Brashard Smith.

247Sports’ Composite pegs Davis as the nation’s No. 50 weak-side defensive end in the Class of 2021. As a junior, Davis recorded 47 total tackles, 16.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and nine hurries for Valdosta (GA.), earning Region 1-7A Defensive Player of the Year honors.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound defensive end/linebacker hybrid is a bulldog on the gridiron. His intensity and aggressiveness has the potential to fit in well with coach Blake Baker’s system.

Davis’ abilities are needed at the linebacker position with redshirt senior, Zach McCloud entering his final year of eligibility in 2020. Smith becomes the Hurricanes’ 21st commit in the 2021 recruiting class, which ranks as No. 10 in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He joins three-star linebackers Ja’Corey Hammett and Deshawn Troutman as the third commit at the position in Miami’s 2021 recruiting cycle.
