Started from a selfie, now we here!

Earlier this summer, a bunch of the players in Miami’s 2017 recruiting class made their way to campus ahead of the start of Summer A session at the University of Miami.

Now, with Summer B session starting on Monday (1 day of class before a Holiday? Turn up!), the rest of the class is making their way South to move into their dorms and enroll at The U.

Here’s who’s coming to campus now:

DE D.J. Johnson

DE D.J. Johnson brings size and athleticism with him from Cali to Miami.

The player with the most scholarship offers of any 2017 recruit, Sacramento (CA) native D.J. Johnson makes his trek across the country to enroll at Miami. A talented player at 6’5” 240lbs, Johnson has the room to grow into a dominant strongside DE, or possible even an uber-athletic defensive tackle. Johnson has the talent and athleticism to push for playing time as a freshman, even on Miami’s loaded defensive line.

WR Evidence Njoku

The younger brother of former Canes TE David Njoku, Evidence is a big bodied WR who may still be growing. The younger Njoku grew from 6’4” to 6’6” in his senior year, and has a frame to add muscle as well. He likely won’t get as big as his brother, so Evidence figures to stick at WR. But, with elite size and great leaping ability, Njoku will be a force in the redzone for years to come.

DT Jon Ford

DT Jon Ford has the QB in his sights

Another big and physical player being added to the Canes’ impressive DL, Jon Ford has a world of potential. He’s a big kid at 6’5” 280lbs, and should grow more over time and with a college strength and conditioning program. Ford’s best days may be in front of him, though, as Miami has 5 talented DTs in front of Ford, including a couple who could make the jump to the NFL after this season if things break right.

LB De’Andre Wilder

A fast and physical player at LB, De’Andre Wilder brings his talents to Coral Gables this week. He’s thin (6’2” 190lbs at signing day), but has reportedly added weight ahead of enrolling at Miami.

P Zach Feagles

P Zach Feagles just hanging out at Under Armour All-American game practice.

A HS running back who will transition to punting full time, Zach Feagles has a booming leg and plenty of talent. Feagles is a Miami legacy — his father Jeff attended UM before a 22 year NFL career as a punter. The younger Feagles will carry on the family tradition, and looks to win the vacant punter job as a freshman.

So, that’s it. Between Early Enrollees, Summer A enrollees, and the 5-man list here of Summer B enrollees, the Miami Hurricanes’ entire 2017 recruiting class should be on campus in Coral Gables in the next couple of days.

This is a group with depth and talent, and several players should find their way into playing time this season.
