CORAL GABLES (AP) — Miami signed prominent quarterback recruit Jack Allison to a grant-in-aid agreement on Saturday.

Allison is a quarterback from Palmetto (Fla.) High who was an Under Armour All-American after throwing for 18 touchdowns as a junior and is generally considered one of the top recruits at his position nationally this year.

Grant-in-aid agreements do not bind athletes to a school like letters of intent do, but rather reaffirm a school’s commitment and scholarship offer to a prospect.

In turn, Allison said he wanted other recruits to see how committed he was to the Hurricanes.

Allison told The Associated Press, “It’s such a relief to know that I have a place to be, and it’s a great place to be.”
