“No doubt” on OL Shane McDermott’s commitment to Miami 

By Jason Lieser

Palm Beach Central offensive lineman Shane McDermott committed to Miami in early March and said today he is resolute in his decision.

Florida State has been making a push for McDermott lately, but he said he is not entertaining offers from any colleges at this point.

“I get calls from FSU, but I just tell them no,” McDermott said. “I’m not going to play that game.”

He said he got his Miami application in the mail yesterday and there is “no doubt” he will be a Hurricane. McDermott (6-4, 270, No. 5 on The Big Board) is on track for early graduation and plans to enroll at UM in January.
