On Wednesday, 3-star defensive lineman Allan Haye Jr. committed to the University of Miami.
The 2021 prospect is ranked as the nation’s No. 43 DT prospect according to 247Sports. The 6-foot-1, 296 pound lineman is coming off of a season in which he helped Chaminade-Madonna win the 3A state championship.
Haye’s coach, Dameon Jones described him as “an athletic player who is aggressive with his hands and quick off the ball.”
He becomes the 11th commit to the 2021 Hurricanes recruiting class that is currently ranked 8th in the nation and 3rd in the Atlantic Coast Conference, per 247Sports. After not securing any defensive tackles in 2020, Haye’s committment is a sign that coach Manny Diaz is looking to add more at the D-line position.
Haye informed Canes coach Manny Diaz of his decision on Tuesday, saying: “I wasn’t really planning on [committing], but when I woke up in the morning I felt like I got to do it today,” Haye said. “I called my mom, she was at work, she joined the call with me and Coach Stroud and then he said Coach Diaz was going to join, and I was like ‘this is perfect.’ Then we started talking and I just broke the news.”
Allan holds offers from Duke, Maryland, NC State, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Indiana, and Kentucky.
