Miami commit trolls Florida State on visit to Tallahassee

Monday April 13th, 2015

Al Blades Jr. is only a freshman in high school, but he already knows where he will be playing college football.

The son of former Miami safety Al Blades, Al Blades Jr. decided to follow in his father's footsteps and verbally committed to the Hurricanes in February.

Blades Jr. was still hearing from in-state rival Florida State, however, and recently took a trip to Tallahassee to visit. But lest Miami fans be worried he could jump ship to the Seminoles, he made it clear where his heart lies.

Not only is he throwing up "The U" while on his visit, he's doing it while in Doak Campbell Stadium and while standing square on the FSU logo. The kid's got guts, though he probably won't be invited back to Tallahassee anytime soon.
