DT: Miami's future looks bright
"I'm really excited about being a Miami Hurricane," Curtis Porter said. "I've watched every last one of their games this season and I love watching them. There's nothing like Miami football. They started out a little slow but they've picked it up lately and they've been playing real well lately." Porter, 6-foot-2 and 325 pounds, is excited about the opportunity he sees at Miami. "You look at all those young players and that's exciting," he said. "The future looks real bright. I've been running a lot lately and trying to get in good shape, get my mind right before I go down there. I'm graduating high school next month so I'll be starting at Miami in about two months." The talented defensive lineman, who is scheduled to visit Miami on December 12th, said he talks to Miami coaches and other recruits. "I talk to Coach Barrow and Coach Hurtt a lot," he said. "They're both great. I like those guys a lot. I talk to Luther Robinson, the other D-Tackle that is committed there." Graduating early, Porter will have an excellent opportunity to go in and compete for a spot next year. He talked about that. "One of my goals is to go in there next spring and compete for a spot," he said. "My biggest goals will be to get my school work done, grow spiritually with God, and do the best job I can of learning how to play Miami football." Porter's senior season finished recently and he had a strong one. "We're done already," he said. "It was OK. We could have done better. I led our team in tackles and I finished third in sacks. I learned a lot this year, that's for sure. I was playing both ways -- tight end, fullback, and defensive tackle."
