Miami adds an elite talent to the 2019 recruiting class

New Canes 2019 DT commit Derick Hunter

On Thursday afternoon, Miami added another key piece to the 2019 recruiting class when DT Derick Hunter committed to the Hurricanes.

Already 6’5” 251lbs, Hunter plays DE at the HS level but has been recruited at DT. He figures to add size and strength as he continues to develop over the course of his last 2 HS seasons.

Hunter is a jumbo athlete with good athleticism. Much like RJ McIntosh before him, Hunter will need to add size and technique as he continues his developmental path.

With Hunter’s commitment, Miami now has 4 commits in the 2019 recruiting class. Hunter committed to Miami from a list of 23 offers, including Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Michigan, Oregon, South Carolina, and UCLA. He joins WR Brieon Fuller, LB Jesiah Pierre, and LB/S Diamante Howard as the commitments in that recruiting class.

For an idea of the kind of player Miami is getting in Hunter, check out the highlights below:
