The future Miami Hurricane stars were out yet again at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami on Thursday night.
Miami-Northwestern topped Miami-Palmetto 17-7 in a game that featured seven Hurricane verbal commitments in the class of 2021.
Northwestern’s Romello Brinson, Kamren Kinchens, Tim Burns Jr., and Kahlil Brantley are all committed to Miami while Leonard Taylor, Savion Collins and Brashard Smith are the Palmetto players currently verbally committed.
The most notable matchup of the night saw Brinson matched up against Florida verbal commitment Jason Marshall at cornerback.
Statistics were not immediately available after the game but Brinson was able to find some space and make some catches on Marshall.
Burns Jr. intercepted a pass and blocked a field goal for Northwestern in the win.
Taylor proved to be very difficult to block on Thursday night from his defensive tackle position. He was very disruptive in the backfield throughout the game.

Both Palmetto (8A) and Northwestern (5A) start the FHSAA playoffs next week.
Several other games for Hurricane commitments are on deck tonight, including a big one on each coast of Florida.
2021 five-star recruit James Williams will lead Plantation American-Heritage against Fort Lauderdale-St. Thomas Aquinas tonight at 8pm. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
These two Broward County private school powers are loaded with talent and should play a competitive game.
On Florida’s west coast, Fort Myers-Bishop Verot and 2021 athlete Malik Curtis will take on Naples-Palmetto Ridge on the road at 7pm.
Curtis, who has six touchdowns in his last two games, will face arguably his highest caliber of competition of the season tonight in undefeated Palmetto Ridge, which features Nebraska verbal commitment Kamonte Grimes. The Bears have given up just 27 points in six wins this season and have pitched four shutouts.
