The Miami Hurricanes lost a defensive line commitment that they expected to be a major contributor in 2014 when 3-star defensive tackle Michael Wyche decommitted on Thursday.

The Miami Herald has the scoop.
Michael Wyche, a key defensive tackle commitment in this class, announced on Twitter that he’s decommitting from Miami because of an obscure ACC rule that requires players be enrolled three semesters at the same junior college.
Wyche, who was enrolled for only two semesters at East Los Angeles Junior College, had appealed the ruling, but apparently unsuccessfully. Wyche could have stayed committed to UM and enrolled here in May but apparently has chosen not to, at least at this point.
The 6’4, 315-pound Wyche originally committed to the Southern California Trojans, but decommitted in October and switched his pledge to the Hurricanes where he hoped to enroll early. However, due to these same rules, he could not.
