Canes Basketball Gets Big Man Out of Michigan

The Miami Hurricanes basketball team landed their first oral commitment for the 2009 class in 6-8 power forward Donnavan Kirk out of Detroit, Michigan (Detroit Country Day School also produced NBA stars Chris Webber and Shane Battier). Kirk is a four-star player according to (who rates him as the 21st-ranked power forward in his class), and is a consensus top 100 player. Michigan State, Iowa, and USC offered Kirk before he chose the Canes today. The word on the streets is that Kirk finishes strongly around the basket and is a strong post presence, in addition to being a superb athlete and free-throw shooter for a big.

Next on the Canes 2009 basketball wish list - point guard phenom Kenny Boynton out of Plantation. Boynton appears to like Duke and UF, so the Canes are considered longshots, but one can wish, eh?
