The Miami Hurricanes have been blessed to have incredible football players come through Coral Gables and play for UM, and one of the reasons why this program is so special is because of the connection the former players have with the team today. One of those former Canes is Rohan Marley (yes, son of Bob), who was a ferocious linebacker alongside Ray Lewis for Miami in the 1990’s.
Since Manny Diaz became head coach for UM, Marley has been much more visible with the program, as he attended Paradise Camp this past summer.

Now, Marley has become one of the Hurricanes top recruiters, especially when it comes to one particular player, highly touted five-star linebacker Justin Flowe.
Marley has apparently known Flowe since he was young, and has been instrumental in the California linebackers interest in Miami. Flowe was on UM’s campus for an official visit back in November, and was indeed impressed by what he saw from the Hurricanes. Flowe will be announcing his decision on December 18th, and it looks like it’s going to be between Miami, Clemson, USC and Oregon.

Flowe would be an amazing addition to an already impressive 2020 recruiting class for Miami. He could also come in and have an immediate impact, as the Hurricanes lose two senior linebackers, Shaquille Quarterman and Michael Pinckney to the NFL following this season.
