Literally.  6-8, 315-pound OL Sunny Odogwu has committed to the University of Miami.

Odogwu, who took an official visit to Coral Gables on December 14th, didn’t hesitate to pledge to Miami, becoming the ‘Canes third offensive lineman commit of the 2013 class.

Odogwu told David Lake of Inside The U, “I asked God directly what was the best thing for me to do and he just kept leading me to Miami.”

The big man hails from Nigeria and he has spent the last year at Hargrave Military Academy.  It seems that Miami has been heavily pursuing JUCO prospects trying to gain enough experience before any sanctions are handed down by the NCAA.

He is ranked a three star prospect by 247sports.com and the No. 2 prep school offensive tackle in the 2013 class, according to Inside The U.

An interview with Odogwu can be seen here.
