You may not be able to smell what Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is cooking, but you can see the gleaming backyard grill where it's about to go down.
After unloading multiple South Florida properties last year, the movie star and WWE legend just bought a massive 13,353-square foot mansion just north of Miami from another former University of Miami football player, Miami Dolphins tackle Vernon Carey.

Though the two didn't overlap on the UM practice field, clearly some guys don't just bleed orange and green but buy it, too. South Florida Business Journal reports The Rock paid $3.4 million for Carey's grandiose gated estate, which features six bedrooms, six and a half baths, a pool, 14-seat home theatre, and a lush, sprawling footprint in the midst of Southwest Ranches' much sought-after Landmark Ranch Estates.
(Perhaps The Rock can organize block parties with the Dolphins' Karlos Dansby, who lives across the street, and new neighbor Udonis Haslem of the Miami Heat.)
Not only did the Johnson and Carey keep it in the U family, but the sale was made by Campins Company agent Octavia McDougle, who is married to former Dolphins tackle Stockar McDougle and the sister-in-law of former UM defensive end Jerome McDougle.
"Campins Company congratulates one of our own, Octavia McDougle, on keeping it all in the family with this recent sale," said celebrity and sports real estate mogul Katrina Campins. "There is strength in unity, and The 'U' continues to prevail and stick together...champion blood pumping, with swag. Once again, it all starts at home. We grow and we give. We learn and we teach. As the legacy continues, forever, for always and no matter what."
