Trent Harris burst onto the recruiting scene this spring with offers from college football heavyweights in a short span of time, and the momentum never slowed. On Monday, he ended the process in announcing his commitment to Miami.

The No. 21 defensive end in America is headed to Coral Gables.

Winter Park (Fla.) four-star Trent Harris announced his commitment to the Miami Hurricanes on a webcast put on by the Orlando Sentinel Monday afternoon.

Heading into the announcement, the 6-foot-2, 235-pounder was considering Florida, Miami and Ohio State despite additional offers from Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, Tennessee and Wisconsin among others.

"I narrowed it down to Florida and Miami, but I decided to attend college at the University of Miami," he announced. "It's a big relief, I just want to go out and play football now."

The commitment may surprise some considering Harris' upbringing and fandom towards another in-state school.

"Florida has always been my dream school, I was raised as a Gator fan,” he told Scout after the Gators offered in March.

But the 'Canes won out in the end as Harris looks to his future though saying no to UF wasn't easy.

"That was difficult, that was my dream as a kid," he admitted. "But you grow up, and what will help me most in the future is the University of Miami.

"The U!"

Harris becomes Miami's third in-state defensive end commitment in the class of 2014, joining the Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington duo of Chad Thomas and Demetrius Jackson.
