Tracy Howard, the nations top-rated high-school cornerback, quietly committed to the University of Miami Hurricanes. Tracy Howard was the 18th-ranked prospect, a 6-foot, 185-pound cornerback, who took visits to a Florida, FSU, USC and West Virginia.

The commitment from Tracy Howard is a huge boost for the Hurricanes, who also got commitment letters from Deon Bush (Miami, Fla./Columbus), Tyriq McCord (Tampa, Fla./Jefferson).  Howard is expected to compete for playing time immediately, and will add great depth to a team that went 6-6 last year.
