Twitter reacts to Miami signing intimidating Australian punter Louis Hedley
National Signing Day is on Wednesday, and the Miami Hurricanes got a jump in the process on everyone else with a signing that has the internet buzzing.
The Hurricanes signed Australian punter Louis Hedley, a transfer from City College of San Francisco. Hedley was able to sign before everyone else because it’s already Wednesday in his native Australia. And the photo of him signing had everyone talking. Why? Take a look.

Hedley is 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and fully tatted. The dude screams intimidation. He is also said to be in his mid-20s, unlike most players signing, who are usually in their late teens.
Take a look at the Twitter reactions.

I just cannot get over the Australian punter who committed to Miami. He’s probably so metal that he rusts in the rain

Hedley comes from an Australian Rules Football background and trained at an American football kicking academy in Australia to learn punting. An article from The Guardsman says he is a threat to convert fake punts thanks to his athleticism.
The U is definitely back.
