The Miami Hurricanes picked up their second player of the 2015 recruiting class Sunday with the commitment of offensive lineman Kevin Feder, out of Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep.

Feder is a three-star player according to both Rivals.com and Scout.com, and was just starting to see more interest from other colleges when he decided to commit to Miami--his only offer. 

He likely would have been offered by many other schools if he had waited a bit more, but told CaneSport.com that he felt like Miami was a great fit.

"Just the bond I've been building with the coaching staff," he said. "And the academic system, football system is amazing down there. I just felt Miami was the place to go and I didn't want to wait."

While other schools might still try to recruit the 6-9, 300-pound lineman, Feder said he wasn't interested in anyplace besides Miami.

"It's a done deal for me," he told CaneSport.com. "I don't feel the need to look at other colleges.

"Ever since I went to the camp last year and got the offer, I've been exploring all different options and looking at colleges. Just Miami's academic system was a huge win over for me because I want a great education. And their football program is amazing. I didn't see anything else that was really beating them."

Feder joins West Palm Beach linebacker Charles Petty as the only other member of the 2015 class so far, but he told Scout.com that has high expectations for the future of Miami's program.

“Right now the way (Golden) is running the program is absolutely outstanding,” Feder said. “With the kids that are committed for the class of 2014 and the commits for my class, the program is only going to improve. The program has a great future."

You can check out Feder's junior highlight film below, but know that he played a good amount of defensive tackle that year because his school had a need for the position. All signs point to Feder being an offensive lineman in college, and he'll be playing left tackle at Don Bosco Prep his senior season.
