Bishop Verot three-star athlete Malik Curtis announced a verbal commitment to the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Curtis is ranked as the nation’s No. 73 athlete. Many view Curtis as a defensive player, but also a return man and potentially a wide receiver.
“After a long week of thinking and talking with my family I will be committing to The University of Miami,” Curtis said in his Saturday evening Twitter announcement.
Curtis comes off a junior season in which he recorded 680 receiving yards and eight touchdowns on offense to go along with 15 tackles and three pass break ups on defense. He also returned four punts and a kickoff for touchdowns. The Vikings finished 9-3 last season.
Curtis becomes Miami’s 12th commit for the class of 2021, ranked No. 7 nationally by 247Sports. Curtis is the second cornerback in the class, joining Miami Northwestern’s Tim Burns Jr.
