ESPN has released it's first list of top 150 recruits for the 2013 season, and of Miami's five commits, two appear on the list: DT Keith Bryant (from Delray Beach, and generally considered to be one of Miami's softer commits), clocks in at No. 70 and TE Standish Dobard (ftom New Orleans) is in at No. 131.

These rankings, obviously, will change -- and it should be noted that ESPN's are pretty incongruous with Rivals' rankings, which should be expected this early in the cycle. For comparison, Bryant does not even appear in the Rivals top 250. Alex Collins, a Miami RB commit from Plantation, is ranked by Rivals as the No. 147 overall player, but does not appear on ESPN's list. (SB Nation's Bud Elliot sides with Rivals, for what it's worth.)

There are also several high priority Miami targets in the upper reaches of ESPN's list.

That list includes Laremy Tunsil, (OT, Lake City, FL, No. 3 overall), Vernon Heagreaves Jr. (CB , Tampa, No. 4), Mackensie Alexander (CB, Immokalee, No. 6), Matthew Thomas (OLB, Miami, No. 20), Jordan Cunningham (WR, Ft. Lauderdale, No. 32), Artie Burns (CB, Miami, No. 67), Kevin Olsen (QB, Wayne, NJ, No. 77), Levonte "Kermit" Whitfield (ATH, Orlando, No. 125) and Jermaine Gracie (OLB, Miramar, No. 150) just to name a few.
