TE Reid Mikeska breaks down his commitment to Miami


Miami landed their second commitment of the day on Sunday evening when Cypress (Texas) Bridgeland tight end Reid Mikeska announced his pledge to the Hurricanes. He chose the program over Oklahoma and Florida, and at one point in the cycle was committed to Clemson. Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Michigan State, North Carolina, Oregon, and Tennessee were some other programs to offer this year.

The announcement exactly a week after an official visit to Miami and the 6-foot-5.5, 233-pounder broke down his decision with InsideTheU.

“I just chose Miami because the first thing that drove me to Miami was it being Tight End U,” Mikeska said ahead of his announcement. “When they offered me, they started showing me a ton of love. [Stephen] Field first of all was super consistent and then when I took my visit the first time I really loved it. I love the coaching staff there, it’s a great atmosphere there. I’m a big fan of how [Josh] Gattis used the tight ends. I love the location as well. I went back on my official and that just kind of confirmed things for me. After that, I did not want to take any more officials because I knew that’s where I wanted to go. “

Field, who is fresh off of landing another highly-touted tight end in Jackson Carver, and tight end assistant Cody Woodiel were ultimately the difference makers for Mikeska, who knows he will be developed in all aspects of his game. His plan is to enroll at Miami in January.

“I’ve already finished all my classes. I feel like I’ll be able to get developed at Miami because of Coach Field, Coach Woodiel, [Mario] Cristobal, and then also working with [Alex] Mirabal blocking wise. You’re not going to get better coaching than that. I can not wait to get up there and start competing with the tight ends in the room, “Mikeska said.

He also becomes the second Lone Star State tight end to choose Miami over major offers in the last three cycles. Elijah Arroyo had a loaded offer sheet before committing to the Hurricanes sight unseen.
