Broward County football players Robert Miller and Greg Hankerson commit to FAU.

Monday was a pretty good day for Jovan DeWitt, FAU's Broward County recruiter.

The Owls landed commitments from two Broward County players - Coral Springs-Taravella defensive back Robert Miller and Ft. Lauderdale-Boyd Anderson quarterback Greg Hankerson - the day after the Owls' first major recruiting weekend.

Miller visited FAU this past weekend. Hankerson will make his official visit to Boca Raton this upcoming weekend.

"It's a program that I can see myself playing in in the future," said Miller, who was the first to commit. "I think it will be a great experience."

Hankerson and Miller have been friends since they were youths. Miller congratulated Hankerson on his decision.

"He called me," Hankerson said. "He said we're going to the BCS. We're going together."

Miller is a 6-foot-1, 190 pound safety who could eventually move up to linebacker at FAU.

He has offers from Indiana and Western Michigan. FAU was his first visit.

Hankerson, a 5-foot-11, 180-pounder with 4.5 speed, threw for better than 2,300 yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior. He holds offers from Cincinnati and Bethune Cookman, though the Bearcats wanted him as a defensive back. FAU recruited Hankerson to play quarterback.

He informed DeWitt, FAU offensive coordinator Brian Wright and running backs coach Kerry Dixon of his decision during a home visit on Monday.

"It felt good - stress relieving, less to worry about," Hankerson said.

With Miller and Hankerson, FUs now has the 16 high school players committed to FAU's 2013 recruiting class. In December FAU signed five junior college players as part of that class.
