Beating out the likes of Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee and UCF, Al Golden and the Miami Hurricanes kicked off the week with a verbal commitment from 2016 Palmetto (Fla.) four-star gunslinger, Jack Allison, who camped in Coral Gables earlier this month.
"Everything was right," Allison said of his commitment to Miami. "The coaches were awesome, the location, the academics (were things that stood out). God told me it was the place to be. They were all jacked up. Coach Golden was real excited and it was a good experience."
The 6-foot-5, 190-pound quarterback credits a portion of his success on the gridiron to the pinpoint accuracy he displays at each offseason event or game he participates in.
"My style of play is to win football games," Allison said. "That's my number one goal. I want to play as many football games as I can. I won't accept to lose."
Allison, who threw for more than 2,000 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions in his sophomore campaign, has two years of prep football left on his plate before donning the green and orange.
"I have a lot of working out, speed training, and 7-on-7 tournaments (coming up)," Allison said. "I plan on getting back to Miami sometime in August."
Palmetto's head coach, Dave Marino, spoke to Scout.com earlier this month and had this to say about his star pupil.
"Jack has such an impressive skill set. He has great mechanics and he can really throw the football. I mean this kid can throw that tight spiral and really spin it. Of course he's accurate."
Allison is the Hurricanes' second commitment of the 2016 class, joining Michael Pinckney, who issued his verbal commitment to Miami on Saturday.
Allison is rated a four-star and the No. 19 quarterback in the nation on Scout.com.
