As the calendar is quickly turning closer to summer, Miami recruiting is going to become heat up as well. For the 2022 recruiting class, the Hurricanes only have one commit so far, 4-star quarterback Jacurri Brown. While Manny Diaz and the staff are going to go after many recruits in this class, I have my own list of the players I want most in this cycle.
Kamari Wilson-safety (IMG Academy)
I’ve pretty vocal about Wilson being my favorite player in this 2022 cycle, and for good reason. With Miami only going to sign probably one safety in this class, the 5-star Wilson fits perfectly for that slot. A big fan of Ed Reed and T-Rob, Wilson has said that Miami is one of the schools that’s pursuing him the most.

Wilson is a Top 25 overall player and the number one safety in the 2022 recruiting cycle. The 6’1 195 Safety has a good relationship with Miami’s new DB coach, Travaris Robinson. pic.twitter.com/B5sovuxR7z
Last season as a junior, Wilson was named first-team Junior All-American by MaxPreps, playing for IMG, the number one team in the nation. Wilson is the #1 ranked safety according to 247 Sports, and is destined for greatness at the next level.
Wesley Bissainthe-linebacker (Miami Central)
If you’ve been following the Canes recruiting for this 2022 class, you’ve heard Bissainthe’s name plenty. The 4-star outside linebacker registered 45 tackles and 7 sacks for a Miami Central team that captured the 6A state championship in 2020.
A product of Dade County, and playing at a position of need for Miami, Bissainthe is a MUST GET for the Hurricanes in this 2022 class. An athletic linebacker who can fly to the ball, cover receivers in passing situations and shut down the run, UM needs to land Bissainthe.
Earl Little Jr.-cornerback (American Heritage)
This player, do I really have to explain myself when talking about Little Jr.? Yes, he’s a legacy, and YES, he’s a cornerback, a position of the absolute highest need for the 2022 class. As far as CB’s go that Miami is looking at in this cycle, I'm not sure there are any higher than Little.

Julian Armella-offensive tackle (Columbus High School)
Another player in Dade County, right in the Canes backyard. Armella, one of the best offensive line prospects in the 2022 class, although he’s an FSU legacy, Miami is pushing hard for this monster. Garin Justice has done a great job building up the Canes offensive line through recruiting so far, and Armella would be one of the biggest steals for Miami in 2022.

Daniel Lyons-defensive tackle (Homestead)
The defensive line class in South Florida for 2022 is absolutely loaded, and one of the players that the Hurricanes are pushing hard for is DT Daniel Lyons out of Homestead. Yes, there are tons of defensive ends in this cycle, but I think Lyons can really become a great tackle for the Canes. Lyons would be a perfect player to put next to Leonard Taylor at the position for the next several years, as Miami tries to rebuild their dominant defensive line.
