CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes have signed a four-star quarterback to their 2020 recruiting class.

Connecticut prep school star Tyler Van Dyke was the coup of Miami's early signing class Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound signal caller chose Miami over offers from Boston College, Louisville, Michigan, Oklahoma State and Wisconsin.

Miami also beat out Atlantic Coast Conference divisional foes Duke, Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh for Van Dyke’s services.

Head coach Manny Diaz’s first full recruiting class includes six Florida signees, including four from South Florida -- safety Brian Balom, a three-star prospect from Miramar; safety Keshawn Washington, a four-star prospect from Homestead; wide receiver Xavier Restrepo, a three-star prospect from Coconut Creek; and safety Jalen Harrell, a four-star prospect from Hollywood.
