For the last three months, Nigel Bethel II (Miami/Booker T. Washington) was trying to tell anyone who would listen. The ESPN 300 cornerback from a Miami Hurricanes pipeline school didn’t want to go to Miami anymore. He didn’t even want to be in the state of Florida.
It came to a tipping point Thursday night as Bethel flipped to Texas Tech from Miami.
“I feel like I wanted to make my own decision,” Bethel said. “Most kids growing up want to go to Miami or FSU or UF, and I felt like I wanted to be different and set my own trend and go to a real college environment.”
