DePaul's Hester Verbally Commits to University of Miami

Standout safety will attend the University of Miami after originally planning to attend Rutgers.

Kiy Hester, the nationally-ranked football safety at DePaul Catholic High School, verbally committed to playing for the University of Miami this past weekend.
"It was just the players, the coaches being from Jersey, the family atmosphere," Hester told NJ.com.
Hester de-committed in November to playing for Rutgers University. He is a four-star recruit and is one of ESPN's top 300 players in the country. He paid official visits to Michigan State late last month. He was due to visit Arkansas, Penn State, and Missiouri. 
"I've always been a Michigan State fan and I knew it would be a tough decision with the other visits lined up," Hester told NorthJersey.com. "But after spending this weekend with Miami, I knew it was where I wanted to be."
Hester helped DePaul win its first state group title in 21 years last Sunday when the Spartans defeated Holy Spirit of Absecon 35-16. 
Hester is the third Wayne football standout in the last two years to commit to playing for the Hurricanes. Hester's teammate Courtel Jenkins committed to playing there earlier this year.
Former Wayne Hills quarterback Kevin Olsen is a redshirt freshman at the South Florida school.
