One Ray Lewis is retiring, another is arriving.

Three-star RB Ray Lewis III -- son of the retiring Baltimore Ravens linebacker -- signed with Miami on Wednesday, set to add to his father's legacy at the school.

His father was twice an All-American linebacker in his three years with the Hurricanes. He left after his junior year and was a first-round draft pick of the Ravens.

The elder Lewis' legendary NFL career included 13 Pro Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl wins, most recently this past Sunday, when Baltimore beat the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31.

A longtime Hurricanes commit, Lewis III was lightly recruited and Miami was his only offer, but he was nevertheless was a productive two-way player.

"Lewis lacks ideal size to be considered an every-down player at running back," Florida recruiting analyst Mike Bakas said. "He could end up playing on defense, where his father made a living, and where his athleticism could shine more."

This past season, Lewis III rushed for over 1,500 yards and also recorded 70 tackles as a safety.
