Miami looks to have the deepest compliments of WR talent in some time after seeing youngsters like Malcolm Lewis, Herb Waters, Rashawn Scott, and Phillip Dorsett all step up for big moments last year. It’s one of the few spots that are mostly settled for 2013 although the looming 2014 class looks like it could bear some special fruit for Miami.

The Roster:


#1 Allen Hurns (SR)

#4 Phillip Dorsett (JR)

#6 Robert Lockhart (SO) *Could receive a medical RS

#9 Malcolm Lewis (SO) *Could receive a medical RS

#15 D’Mauri Jones (RS FR)

#80 Rashawn Scott (JR)

#81 Jontavious Carter (RS FR)

#86 Herb Waters (SO)

#87 Garrett Kidd (SO)

The Lowdown:

Miami looks to have the deepest compliments of WR talent in some time after seeing youngsters like Malcolm Lewis, Herb Waters, Rashawn Scott, and Phillip Dorsett all step up for big moments last year. It’s one of the few spots that are mostly settled for 2013 although the looming 2014 class looks like it could bear some special fruit for Miami.

The Commits:

Angelo Jean-Louis (6’0”, 180) – To be frank and honest, he properly shouldn’t be in the commitment category but since most places list him as such, I’ll keep him here for now. Truth is that AJL is visit Marshall in the near future after continuing to have admission problems with Miami after a year at Fork Union Prep and that all signs are pointing to him signing with Marshall as a grade casualty from Miami. It’s a tough break for both sides.

The Targets:


Stacy Coley (6’1”, 175) – Every Miami fan knows about and has salivated over Coley at this point. He’s long been considered the best WR talent in the State of Florida 2013 class but also came with various character questions. Miami kept their distance for most of the process and just recently picked up steam with Coley after seeing the maturity and growth that they wanted to during the season. He visited Miami last weekend and his coach, former Cane Donnell Bennett, has said encouraging things but he’s been a Florida State lean for most of the process and they are very confident on their end as well. He’s a kid that plays things close to the vest but I’d still give Florida State the edge here coming off of his Miami visit high, despite some reports out there to the contrary.

Jordan Cunningham (6’3”, 175) – Cunningham was one of the 1st recruits Miami jumped after early in the process and he’s had serious interest in them ever since, even pondering a commitment way back in the spring. At the moment, he seems to be a guy on the fence as to whether or not Miami would accept his commitment in this tight class. He brings a big body and incredible catch radius to the table to complement some of the smaller, speedier guys currently on the roster. If Miami decides to take him, I’d say he’s easily in this class, but for right now he looks to be on the outside looking in which seemingly would put Stanford in the driver’s seat for his signature.

Looking to the Future:


Ermon Lane (6’2”, 190) – Lane is the single best talent on this entire list and has the potential to be the type of game changing playmaker that could up the entire level of Miami’s passing attack to elite levels. Coming from Homestead, he looks like the type of kid that Miami should be able to put themselves in a good spot to land as Coach Barrow was done a terrific job of recruiting there for the years.

Johnnie Dixon (5’10”, 187) – Dixon was one of the earlier Miami offers for the class of 2014 out of Dwyer HS in West Palm Beach. As most recruitniks would know, Dwyer is historically a big Florida Gator pipeline most recently sending backup QB Jacoby Brissett their way after a heated recruiting battle with Miami during Golden’s 1st year on the job. Dixon has major offers all over and on the onset, looks like he could be a kid that Miami battles with the Gators over, similar to Brissett a couple years ago.

Tyre Brady (6’3”, 187) – Brady is a curious case. He has bounced around between Columbus and South Dade before eventually moving to Texas. To my knowledge, he is not longer attending HS in Texas has disappeared somewhat from the scene. Nonetheless, Miami was turned on to Brady after he camped there over the summer and he has a slew of programs interested. Grades are something to watch with kids that bounce around as much as he has but he’s a talent that has certainly piqued Miami’s interest early on.

Travis Rudolph (6’1”, 185) – Rudolph is a current Miami commit after pledging to the Canes back in the summer. He is the cousin of former Hurricane great Devin Hester, although that has not seemed to move the needle much as Rudolph has recently seemed less than steady with his decision to attend Miami. Given Miami’s history with early commits, this is one to keep an eye on moving forward.

Artavis Scott (5’10”, 175) – Scott is a self proclaimed Miami fan that has a good bit on interest in the program. To this point, Miami has yet to really jump into his recruitment and has not offered Scott. Schools like Florida State, South Florida, and Ohio State are amongst the ones that seem to have the early edge but Miami could jump into the heat of the battle if they offered. He looks like a the type of kid that coaches love to see camp and compete before deciding one way or the other.

Austin Roberts (6’2”, 210) – As the son of Alfredo Roberts, Austin is a Cane legacy who recently moved from the Tampa area to Indianapolis due to his father’s coaching career. Austin is the kind of big framed kid that could potentially grow into a move TE down the road, similar to the role that Miami has recruited Travis Johnson to play in. Thus far Roberts has visited numerous schools amongst the northeast as well as having serious interest in both Miami and Florida.

Adly Enoicy (6’5”, 205) – Early on, it appears that former Miami commit Keith Bryant’s Atlantic teammate Adly Enoicy is amongst one of the top handful of recruits on Miami’s board at WR. A long 6’5” frame with a good bit of upside, Enoicy landed his Miami offer back on JR day, almost a year ago. He has since visited and camped at Miami multiple times and looks like someone that Miami is strongly after for it’s 2014 class.

Jacob McCrary (6’0”, 175) – McCrary was committed to Florida State earlier in the process before backing out of that commitment in the not so distant past. Miami has yet to really get involved in his recruitment but he’s another talented prospect in Miami’s back yard that could garner more interest from them down the road. He’s open to being recruited by Miami and has interest in playing there but it’ll be interesting to see if the situation with close friend and former Miami DB Vernon Davis keeps him at arms distance.
