Three-star linebacker Gionni Paul (Lakeland, Fla./Kathleen), an Arizona State commit, took an official visit to Miami over the weekend.

The 6-foot, 220-pounder was one of three players from the talent-rich Polk County area to commit to the Sun Devils early last month. He had offers from LSU, Louisville, Tennessee, South Florida and a host of others.

"The guys from the new staff [on Miami] just called up one day, the old staff had recruited him before," said head coach Irving Strickland. "They were watching his film and they ended up offering."
