2016 Miami (OH) Football Recruiting: TE Kyle Speas commits to the RedHawks

The RedHawks landed their third tight end commit of the 2016 recruiting class.

Miami has added another commitment from Illinois.  Plainfield North High School's tight end Kyle Speas announced his decision a while ago.  Speas reportedly received a scholarship offer from Bowling Green, right after he had committed to the Miami, but decided to stick with the RedHawks.

Hustle Belt was able to catch up with the 6-foot-6 220 pound prospect to find out why he chose the RedHawks.  "The coaches first off, the coaches are great.  There's people you can people you can connect with pretty quickly."

Speas also told Hustle Belt of some other goals that he hopes to accomplish during his time at Miami.  "I want to try get out in four years, definitely, and be the best I can be."

Kyle Speas' big frame will vital in his success as a RedHawk.  Miami could really use a big target in the red zone as they ranked ninth in the MAC by completing only 72.5 percent of their red zone trips.  Speas will join fellow 2016 tight end commits Andrew Homer and Johnny Lumpkin to help the RedHawk's red zone offense and passing game.
