Canes Makeover

Your 2023 Canes are gonna look a lot different.

NCAA Football: ACC Media Days Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Hurricanes will look significantly different when they take the field for game 1 of the 2023 season. Mario Cristobal and his staff have been recruiting at a high level as evidenced by the talent acquisition going into year two. The Canes coaches have worked hard to improve the overall talent and depth on the roster, and will soon have the opportunity to show improvement over last years team.

Coach Cristobal and his coaching staff have landed both elite high school recruits and experienced college transfers that have immediately improved the depth and competition within the program.

Miami signed the 7th best overall recruiting class in 2023, and have climbed their way to the 8th best transfer class. This puts Miami amongst the top 5 schools in the country for the 2023 class.

LSU, USC, Oklahoma, Miami, and Oregon are the only programs to garner top 10 classes in recruiting and portal acquisitions this cycle.

Expect to see a significant amount of the new additions on the field in 2023.
