Miami lands NJ standout

The Miami Hurricanes aren't new at heading into New Jersey and pulling out talent. A few years ago it was Thomas Carroll and last season it was John Rochford and transfer Greg Olsen. Now it's the top defensive lineman in the Garden State.
Millville, N.J. defensive tackle Dwayne Hendricks has committed to the Miami Hurricanes.
"I actually committed last week when coach Coker came to my school, but I wanted to take my official visit and make sure I fit in with everyone," he said. "My visit went great, I was hosted by Thomas Carroll and got along well with everyone."
Hendricks chose Miami over Virginia and Iowa. He also had offers from Michigan, Florida, Penn State and others. So is he done taking visits?
"Yes, I think so," he said. "I was thinking about a Florida or Penn State visit this upcoming weekend, but I'm sold on Miami and don't need to see anyplace else. It's not fair to them if I take visits."
Hendricks is ranked as the No. 11 defensive tackle in the country by Rivals.com and No. 4 in the state of New Jersey. He'll play defensive end at Miami.
