First it was Jake Heaps and now the Miami (FL) Hurricanes have their quarterback of the future too. On Monday, 4-star quarterback Jack Allison committed to the Hurricanes program, according to a report by 247Sports.
Allison, a Palmetto, Fla. native, chose the Hurricanes over offers from schools like Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, UCF and others. He also becomes the first rated player to verbally commit to the Hurricanes and the second committed player for the 2016 class. The commitment was made official via Allison’s twitter account, where he threw up the virtual ‘U’ symbol.
The 6’5″, 200-pound quarterback had recently camped at both Missouri and Miami. In fact, Allison participated in two camps for the Hurricanes with a previous appearance at a camp on June 1.
He is the No. 12-ranked pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class by the 247Sports composite rankings and the No. 27-ranked player in the state of Florida.
According to David Lake of InsideTheU.com, Allison threw for 1,778 yard with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading his team to the playoffs.
He will be in position to compete with a very young group of quarterbacks during his freshman season. He’ll have a redshirt junior and two potential redshirt sophomores (or true juniors depending on what happens this season) in front of him as he enters college.
With Allison added to the mix, Miami has the No. 13-ranked class in the early 2016 national rankings and the No. 3-ranked class in the ACC for 2016.
