Orlando Edgewater’s three-star linebacker Deshawn Troutman announced his commitment to the University of Miami late Wednesday night on social media.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound ILB has the perfect killer mentality for Manny Diaz’s defense. He is a very underrated player whose film is amazing. Miami got themselves a steal in Troutman.
Troutman is the No. 32 inside linebacker in the nation and the No. 109 prospect in the state per 247 Sports. He’s the first ILB commit in the 2021 class.
He chose The U over offers from Florida State, Louisville, Indiana, Minnesota, Kansas, West Virginia, and Kansas State.
Troutman joins Miami Killian’s Tyler Johnson and Miami Northwestern’s Ja’Corey Hammett as the third linebacker in the 2021 class to commit to the Canes.
He becomes the 14th commit in the Hurricanes’ 2021 recruiting class. UM’s class is currently ranked 13th in the nation by 247 Sports and 16th by Rivals. Miami’s recruiting class currently consists of 11 players who go to school in Miami-Dade or Broward County, with two being born in the 305, Troutman, and Elijah Arroyo.
Manny Diaz continues to prioritize going after local players in the South Florida high school football hotbed.
