The commits keep coming and today it's Dade Christian School tight end Aaron Batten.

Batten is listed at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds on Scout.com, which ranks him as a two-star prospect out of Miami. He was originally committed to Kent State but changed his mind following an official visit to Syracuse last weekend. Sonneborn said the official visit sealed Batten's decision to flip.

Why go to the MAC when you can play for MAC coaches here?

Rivals lists him as a three-star talent and says George McDonald was the one who got him to flip. Batten also apparently had schollie offers from Minnesota, Duke, Bowling Green, Connecticut, Kentucky, Temple and Western Michigan. That WMU one is gonna sting, Broncs.

Batten is the 2nd TE in the 2013 class, joining Tyler Provo, brother of Nick.

Batten also played defensive end in high school and has fantastic hair. Check out some highlights of the big hoss below:
