Miami making a move on Matias

OL Josue Matias (6-5 300) of Union City, NJ was favoring USC, Rutgers, and Florida but has now added Miami to the list.

"They called me and told me that Coach (Al) Golden was interested in me and I was pretty excited," said Matias.

He has already taken official visits to Florida, North Carolina, and Wisconsin and has scheduled his visit to USC on January 14th. He says he is unsure if he will take a fifth visit, but if he does, it will be between Miami and Rutgers.

Matias has received an in-home visit from Steve Spurrier and G.A. Mangus and says it went well. "They just told me how much they could use me there," he said.

Matias does not have a time frame for his decision saying only, "when it feels right, I'll commit." He does not have a favorite.
