Rivals250 tight end Dedrick Epps out of Richmond (Va.) Huguenot committed to Miami back in September, but this week the Hurricanes fired a few coaches after their tough bowl loss to LSU including the four-star prospect's recruiter Vernon Hargreaves. How does this news affect Epps commitment with the Hurricanes?
"It doesn't bother me at all, I'm still strongly committed and it's all good," he said. "I can say I was shocked to hear the news, but I'll just have to go with it. I got a call personally on Monday around two or three from coach Hargreaves and he basically told me a few coaches were released including himself, that was basically the conversation. He didn't go into anymore detail about it after that."
Epps is expecting to hear from Miami's coaches in the future.
"Coach Hargreaves told me he just wanted to keep me updated on what's going on," he said. "He mentioned that the coaches will call back later once they know what is happening and who the new coaches will be."
The No. 12 tight end in the country expects to be in camp at Miami in July.
This spring Epps is preparing to head down to South Beach by lifting weights and running track.
