Recruiting: four-star DB Trajan Bandy commits to Miami Hurricanes

The Hurricanes landed a big commitment for the 2017 class. Four-star cornerback Trajan Bandy announced his commitment Thursday, giving Miami the No. 29 cornerback in the nation according to 247Sports.

Bandy confirmed his commitment via Twitter.

Bandy (5-10, 175) plays at Miami-Columbus, in the same defensive backfield as fellow UM commits Chris Henderson and Josh Jobe (2018).

He decommitted from Oklahoma last month and picked UM over South Carolina and Clemson.

Bandy is Miami’s third commitment in the last 24 hours, joining former FSU commit Bradley Jennings Jr.a linebacker, and Lake Worth High defensive end Jonathan Garvin

Steve Wiltfong, a recruiting analyst for 247Sports, wrote that Bandy is “is a technically sound cornerback [and] a twitch athlete with great instincts and a nose for the football. There are cornerbacks with more height, but it will be hard to find them with better ball skills and leaping ability. Bandy also has 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash.”

Bandy’s coach, Columbus’ Chris Merritt, told 247Sports that Bandy is “the best cover corner in South Florida, period. … He has a street fighter, street boxer look in his eye.”
