5-Star CB Cormani McClain Committed To Miami In A Move That Shocked Everyone, Including 247Sports, Who Ran Its Pre-Recorded Package For Him Going To Florida

On Thursday night, 2023 5-star cornerback Cormani McClain announced a shocker when he committed to the University of Miami. McClain is the No. 1 corner in the 2023 class and had seemed like a virtual lock to go to Florida. In fact, every expert at 247Sports that had submitted a Crystal Ball prediction for McClain's commitment had him becoming a Gator — including one just a few hours before he announced his commitment.

And I guess 247 was pretty confident in its intel, because after McClain announced he would be a Hurricane, the video they first released was the one they had already recorded for him going to Florida.

In fairness, things like that aren't recorded — much less released – unless those guys are pretty certain where a kid is going, so it's likely something changed at the 11th hour. Maybe just wait until the announcement is made before you schedule that video in TweetDeck next time, though.

Also thoughts and prayers to this Florida fan who was live streaming when the video came across his feed and he thought the Gators had landed McClain. Tough scenes.
