The Opening Miami Regional Update

Plenty of Miami commits and targets competed Sunday for a chance to receive an invite to The Opening Finals

Many Miami Hurricanes commits took part in The Opening Miami regional event including Belen Jesuit’s Don Chaney Jr., who took home the RB MVP honors. Chaney Jr. ran a 4.55 and had a 40-inch vert. He was rewarded with an invite to The Opening Finals after competing.

He will not be taking any more visits and plans to enroll at Miami early, according to Andrew Ivins of 247Sports.

Another one of those 2020 commits that had a good day was DE Samuel Anaele. He too was given an invite to The Opening Finals.

Anaele is already committed to play in the Under Armor All-American game and currently ranks as the 185th prospect in his class.

Miami Northwestern WR and Miami commit Marcus Fleming had a long touchdown in today’s event as well.

Fleming’s route running skills are crisp, as you can see by the clip. It’s easy to see why the Hurricanes think so highly of his skill set.

South Dade DB and Miami commit Jaiden Francois had an interception at the event today as well.

Another name to watch out for is former Ohio State commit and IMG Academy DB Lejond Cavazos, who not only had the fastest 40-time at the event (4.42), but also won the combine challenge by posting a ridiculous 133.26 SPARQ Rating.

Cavazos visited Miami Saturday and later posted a picture captioned “Paradise”

He even encouraged Paris Johnson Jr., a five-star OT and Ohio State commit, to join him on his next visit to Coral Gables.

Like Chaney and Anaele, Cavazos was also rewarded with an invite to The Opening Finals.

In regards to the 2021 class, nobody stood out more than University School OT Marcus Tate, who is already being considered a five-star in his class. He took home OL MVP honors despite being a year younger than a majority of his competition. It would be wise for Miami to do everything and anything they can to lock him up as soon as possible.

His recruitment must be a priority for this staff despite the fact that he would not start classes in Coral Gables for another two years.

Another 2021 guy that looks mature beyond his years is Southwest DT and Miami commit Savion Collins. The way he can move at 6’4 290 lbs is just ridiculous. Watch the way he dominates his competition on this rep.

Apart from Chaney Jr., Anaele, and Cavazos, Jaylon Knighton (RB, Deerfield Beach), Henry Gray (DB, Central), and Marcus Rosemy (‘21 WR, St. Thomas Aquinas) received invites to The Opening Finals after Sundays event.
