Scott is 1st to send signed letter to Miami
Question of the Day
“I’m going to be on time for everything,” Scott said in a telephone interview. “It’s great because I know Coach Golden is going to be a great coach, and I wanted to be part of the Miami family. I didn’t want anything else.”
At least 15 letters were expected by day’s end, and the one from defensive end Anthony Chickillo of Tampa (Fla.) Alonso High _ Miami’s first three-generation Hurricane _ arrived around 7:45 a.m. His grandfather Nick was an All-American at Miami in the early 1950s, and his father Tony was a Hurricane three decades ago on his way to the NFL.
Chickillo originally committed to Miami when Randy Shannon’s staff was in place. Shannon was fired in November, but Chickillo was impressed with the recruiting pitch that Golden presented as well.
“They’ll do whatever it takes to turn Miami’s program around,” Tony Chickillo said. “Al’s a real bright guy. He seems to be real sharp. He’s a real handsome guy, got a really beautiful wife, they make a great couple. He has a lot of the values that I played under at Miami under Howard Schnellenberger. He’s a real strict disciplinarian who wants to win.”
Three other players joined the team prior to signing day: Defensive lineman Olsen Pierre and cornerback Thomas Finnie enrolled last month, and tight end Blake Ayles transferred from USC.
