Five Miami Hurricane verbal commitments will be on the same field tonight as Miami Northwestern hosts Bradenton IMG Academy at 7:30pm at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami.

Two 2020 wide receiver commitments—IMG’s Michael Redding III and Northwestern’s Marcus Fleming—and three Northwestern 2021 recruits in wide receiver Kahlil Brantley, wide receiver Romello Brinson and defensive back Tim Burns Jr. are all expected to play tonight for their respective teams.

IMG (1-0) is ranked fifth in MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25 while Northwestern (2-0) is ranked No.15 in this national poll. The Bulls have not surrendered a point in two games, while the Ascenders scored 46 in their season-opening victory over Venice two weeks ago.

IMG defeated Northwestern 34-7 in September 2018. Check out highlights from that game, featuring current Hurricane linebacker Sam Brooks and Alabama’s Trey Sanders, below.
