After linemen Colton McKivitz, and Peyton Truitt, decommitted from the Redhawks for West Virginia, and Purdue respectively, it left Chuck Martin and the Miami coaching staff searching to fill their spot in the 2015 recruiting class before National Signing Day.

Saturday was a huge day for the RedHawks as they walked away with a come from behind win over the Minutemen of UMass, but they also landed a verbal commitment from a two-star offensive tackle.

Announcing his college plans via his Twitter page, Sam Murrer, a 6-foot-5 285 pound prospect from Covington Catholic High School in Alexandria, Kentucky, is now the 16th senior to give a commitment to Martin, and the Redhawks.

"It just felt like home. Fantastic education. I loved the coaches, and the program is quickly rising. It's just an all round great fit." Sam stated to Hustle Belt as to why he chose Miami over scholarship offers from programs such as, Ohio, Western Kentucky, Austin Peay, Fordham, Furman, Indiana State, Lafayette, and Wofford.

Looking to overhaul the offensive line this recruiting cycle, Miami currently has five talented linemen pegged to play their college ball in Oxford. Murrer now joins, long time commits Ian Leever, Ryan MullenMatt Skibinski, and Sam McCollum, as future Redhawk road blocks.
