MIRAMAR, Fla. — Tracy Howard says he expects the NCAA to impose sanctions against Miami. He wants to play for the Hurricanes anyway.
The defensive back rated as the nation's best by some recruiting services has chosen the Hurricanes, giving Miami's rebuilding efforts a huge boost. Howard played his high school ball for state power Miramar High and turned down Florida and Florida State, among others.
Howard signed his letter Wednesday. He largely ignored Miami during his recruiting saga, and until the last few days was considered likely to sign with Florida.
Miami is the subject of an NCAA investigation because of claims made by a former booster, who said he supplied athletes and recruits with extra benefits from 2002 through 2010. It's unknown when the NCAA inquiry will end.
