Nick Linder follows brother to The U

The Miami Hurricanes received a pledge Wednesday night from junior offensive lineman Nick Linder (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas), according to multiple sources. He is the younger brother of Hurricanes guard Brandon Linder.

At this time, Linder's only scholarship offer is from Miami. His primary recruiter was Hurricanes defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio. Other programs, such as Cincinnati, Duke and Rutgers, were showing interest.

Linder is Miami's fifth Class of 2014 verbal. All five prospects are from South Florida.
