Senior - WR - 6'2 195 - Homestead, Fl
Has had a relatively prolific career at UM, with 57 catches, 890 yards, and 8 TDs in 3 seasons.
Waters has really nice hands, can get vertical, runs well after the catch, yet strangely always seems to be just a complimentary piece in the Miami offense.
Also suffered a scary injury toward the end of the season:

But clearly can make plays when healthy:
Summary: Waters is a guy I have been waiting to break out for 3 seasons now. It just hasn't happened. He does a little bit of everything well, but has been passed over over the years it seems by players like Stacy Coley, Phillip Dorsett, and Braxton Berrios. I especially love Waters in the slot where he will mainly compete with Berrios. On the outside he can also do work, but will have to match Coley, Tyre Brady and Rashawn Scott to get reps. With Dorsett graduated, his best role may be as a deep threat, something he has done well during his career. There just aren't enough balls to go around for all of Miami's WRs, but I still think Waters has a nice senior season and hauls in 20-25 catches and gets deep for a few bombs. If he does, it will definitely help the 'Canes offense maintain/regain its' swag.
