A little Canes football news and he name-drops Christian Wilkins.

Four-star Connecticut based Tyler Van Dyke is committed, and he is expected to be Miami’s only quarterback addition in this class.
And there’s a lot for Canes fans to be excited about: Van Dyke has good size (6-4), a cannon for an arm, and his throws were mostly accurate at Paradise Camp. Let’s put it this way: The ball gets to his receivers quickly; there’s a lot of zip on his passes.
And more good news: Van Dyke said after Paradise Camp that he’s fully committed to UM, isn’t taking other visits and expects to enroll in January.
Unless someone transfers (which is always a possibility if not a likelihood), UM will then have five scholarship QBs in 2020 with Tate Martell, N’Kosi Perry, Jarren Williams, Peyton Matocha and Van Dyke.
Van Dyke chose UM over Syracuse because he holds offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dan Enos in high regard, likes UM’s pro style offense also likes the school’s academics and warm weather.
“It was a no-brainer,” he told The Hartford Courant. “Pro style offense. [Enos] was at Alabama last year, and they had so much success with it. He’s really good with X’s and O’s. I could learn a lot from him, and it would be a great opportunity for me to get to the next level.”
Van Dyke’s goal is to “hopefully be the next Christian Wilkins” — the Clemson defensive tackle who also attended Suffold Academy in Connecticut and is now with the Dolphins.
