For the 2013 campaign, head coach Al Golden and the Miami Hurricanes are going to hope that senior QB Stephen Morris can finally put forth the Heisman-like performance that’s been expected of him and lead the ‘Canes to a meaningful postseason game. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen.
Either way, with this being Morris’ final year in Coral Gables, the main focus of the Miami program next season will undoubtedly be finding the young man to replace him under center. While a decision like that is never easy, the Hurricanes are certainly giving themselves plenty of options.
Late Tuesday night, the Miami staff was informed that they’ve secured a commitment from Mobile, AL product and dual-threat QB Malik Rosier. Rosier’s commitment marks the third signal caller to pledge his allegiance to the ‘Canes for 2014. Rosier joins the already committed Brad Kaaya and Alin Edouard. Although it should also be noted that Edouard’s commitment is considered a “soft” one at this point.
Back to Rosier, while not heavily recruited, the QB has attended various camps over the spring and summer including Alabama, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. He was considered by many to be a fast riser up the recruiting ranking, however after sitting down with his mother, decided that he wanted to make his commitment to Miami official.
At 6-2 and 205-pounds, Rosier is a versatile quarterback with the arm to match it. Last season for Faith Academy, the junior threw for over 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns, while rushing for over 1,000 and 12 scores as well.
Rosier is set to be on the Miami campus this upcoming weekend.
