Brian Polendey is committed to coming back stronger than ever for the Miami Hurricanes.

The 6-foot-6, 230-pound sophomore tight end saw action in two games for the Hurricanes this season before suffering a season-ending injury. As a freshman, he appeared in six games, with most of his action coming on special teams, according to the school’s website.

Coming out of Guyer High, Polendey was rated a three-star recruit and as the country’s No. 11 tight end by ESPN.  

Playing for coach John Walsh at Guyer, Polendey bagged nine catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns as a junior. He ultimately chose Miami over a slew of suitors that included Arkansas, Colorado, Houston and Michigan.  

The Hurricanes finished 7-6 overall and 4-4 in the ACC this season. The school recently installed Manny Diaz as its new head coach, taking over for Mark Richt who announced his retirement after the season.
