The 2016 recruiting class was a solid one for Miami. Several of the recruits, the QB of the future (Jack Allison), a trio of linebackers who figure to play from day 1 (Shaq Quarterman, Michael Pinckney, and Zach McCloud), and a legacy DE (Patrick Bethel) have been on campus and with the team since January. But, there's more on the way.
With Summmer Session 1 starting classes on Monday, several other 2016 signees are making their way to Coral Gables this weekend. They'll be moving into the dorms, getting their Cane Cards, and becoming the newest enrollees at The U. This is the group that's on the way now:

So, after this weekend, 10 of the 19 2016 signees will be on campus and fully integrated into the program. The remaining players, WRs Sam Bruce and Dionte Mullins, TEs Jovani Haskins and
Michael Irvin II, DLs Joseph Jackson and Tyreic Martin, and DBs Jeff James, Malek Young, and Cedrick Wright, will be arriving for Summer Session 2 (starts June 27th) or later.

But, whether it's today or in a month and a half, much needed additions to the roster are coming, Canes fans. And that's a good thing.
