Canes sign two

Two players have signed Financial Aid agreements with the University of Miami in the last couple days. Read on for more info.

Bowman Archibald and Scott Patchan have both signed Grant-In-Aid Agreements with the University of Miami. They're both members of the 2015 class.

Archibald signed his on Saturday. At 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, he's a very talented tight end/defensive end prospect from Pasco High near Tampa. He put his name on the recruiting map as a junior last season when he caught eight passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns. He added 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks on defense.

Archibald committed to the Hurricanes back in the spring, choosing Miami over offers from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Oregon, Tennessee, and USC.

Patchan, 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, has Miami in his bloodlines. His father played for the Hurricanes back in the 80s. The 4-star from IMG Academy finished his junior season at Freedom High with 56 tackles, 24 for loss, and 8.5 sacks.

Patchan committed to the Hurricanes a couple months ago. He also had offers from schools like Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State, and Tennessee.

Recruits can sign Financial Aid agreements with other schools, like Brandon Powell (a one-time Hurricane commitment who signed with Florida) did last year, but the school is now officially bound to give him a scholarship. They won't be able to take back the offer at any point between now and National Signing Day.
