Hurricanes Basketball Scholarship Matrix

Miami will have Davon Reed for 3 more years - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

A look at Miami's basketball's scholarship availability for this year and future seasons.

Inspired by Cam's very well done football scholarship Matrix, I present to you the UM Hoops version.

With this season's short-handed squad competing so very hard, there are plenty of reasons for hope for the future. Coach L will have an influx of talent via a very nice recruiting class, the experience this year's young players are gaining, and some big time transfers.

Hopefully the below will help in discussion/conversations about recruiting needs and more.

With out further ado, I present to you the matrix (unofficial):
