Canes land 4-star CB prospect

Canes land 4-star CB prospect

The University of Miami is off to a good start in recruiting this year and today they just landed one of the nation's most heavily recruited cornerback prospects. Read on to see everything he's saying about his decision and more.

Albert Louis-Jean has been taking some unofficial visits this spring to check out some of his top college choices. Today, he decided to end the recruiting process.

"I just committed to Miami," Louis-Jean told "I'm on a visit here right now. I just left the coaches, talked to all of them, watched practice. I'm down here with my father having a good time."

Louis-Jean, 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, said he's been interested in Miami for a long time.

"It started when I was younger. I've always liked them," he said. "They offered me around Christmas and I've been real interested ever since. When I was younger, I played Miami on the video games. My dad gave me a jersey one time for Christmas. They've had some great teams and I wanna be a part of some more."

The standout corner, who calls Jeff Stoutland and Wesley McGriff his primary recruiters, said there's a good opportunity for him at Miami.

"They want me at corner. I'm gonna have a good chance to come in and play. They have some seniors leaving so they're thin there."

Louis-Jean also had scholarship offers from schools like Notre Dame, Maryland, Rutgers, Boston College, Penn State, and several others. Is he completely down with the recruiting process?

"I'm not sure yet, just gonna play it by ear," he said. "But I'm real excited about coming to Miami."

Louis-Jean, rated as a four-star and the 10th-best cornerback prospect in America on Scout, claims a 3.1 GPA inside the classroom and he hasn't taken the test yet.

Louis-Jean becomes Miami's second commitment for the Class of 2011. Their first was Vero Beach offensive guard Marcus Jackson, who committed to the Canes over offers from schools like Florida and South Carolina.
