After taking visits to a number of division one programs (Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee), 2014 wide receiver Braxton Berrios, decided today that he wanted to play for the University of Miami.  The 5’9/180 pound slot receiver is sure handed and fast.  He’s just what Miami needs in the way of receiver depth and a boost to recruiting since Miami hasn’t had a verbal commitment in some time. Berrios is the first fruits of Miami’s big win over the University of Florida in September and after the game he told CaneINsider that “it was great,” meaning his visit and the game atmosphere. During his visit, Berrios’ father was heard praising Miami and being audibly in love with the university and the football program.  It turns out, his son wasn’t far behind. Berrios’ relationship with current quarterback commit, Brad Kaaya, also help to crystallize his interest in coming to Coral Gables but according to reports, he’d like the school growing up as a kid and it finally paid off in a major way for the Hurricanes. After the departure of Allen Hurns next season, the Hurricanes will be down to just to just six scholarship wide receivers.  The departures in the off season and during the season at the position have really hurt depth making today’s commitment by Berrios much needed. The Canes already have commitments for 2014 from wide receivers Darrell Langham from the Palm Beach area and athlete Trayone Gray from Miami Carol City high school who is expected to play receiver.  Tight end commit, Chris Herndon, from suburban Atlanta also has H-back potential and can split out at wide out because of his speed.  But overall, head coach Al Golden has made no secret that Miami needs at least two to three dedicated wide outs.  Berrios is one of three that the Canes are looking for. The next on Miami’s radar are likely Palm Beach Dwyer’s Johnnie Dixon, Immokalee’s J.C. Jackson (a Florida verbal) and Travis Rudolph, also of the Palm Beach playing for Cardinal Newman High.   The post 2014 WR Braxton Berrios Chooses Miami appeared first on CaneInsider | Miami Hurricanes Athletics and Recruiting.
