2021 Signing Day Profile: WR Romello Brinson

Matthew_Suero
2021 Miami Northwestern (FL) WR Romello Brinson signed with the Miami Hurricanes earlier today. Brinson is Miami's 10th signee of the day.


The 6-2 180 pounder is currently a consensus 4-star prospect in the national rankings. According to the 247Sports Composite Ranking, he is the #139 player nationally in 2021, the #25 WR in the country, and the #21 player in the Sunshine State.


Recruiting Story

Romello Brinson is one of a few two-time Miami commits in the class. Brinson first committed to Miami on February 10th, 2019, less than a month after receiving his Miami offer. Brinson then decommitted from Miami on November 24th, 2019 following the loss to FIU. Receivers coach Rob Likens did a good job of building a relationship with Brinson when he joined Miami’s staff in January of 2020 and was able to get Brinson back into the class on June 13th of this year. Brinson chose the Canes over offers from Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, and Florida among others.

Evaluation

On film, Brinson is truly a threat to score from anywhere on the field and that is a quality that shows up immediately when looking at his game. Run-after-catch ability is top-notch and he features no wasted motion in his movements. Electric after the reception, sees cutback lanes before they develop, and just has instincts for what to do with the ball in his hands, allowing him to impress in the screen game especially. Demonstrates some qualities of an advanced route runner and has a deadly double move in his repertoire; will have to continue to make improvements route running overall, though. Love the way he is able to subtly create space and windows for his QB to find. Has the capability to race past cornerbacks and separate deep to really stress a defense over the top, requiring his opposition to always account for him. Sports great body control and high pointing ability in adjusting his trajectory in the air to come down with jump balls.



Brinson had a productive senior season competing and making plays against elite competition such as 5-star corner Jason Marshall, 4-star corner Markevious Brown, and 2022 corner Jacolby Spells.



The Team

Brinson and the rest of the 2021 class bring the number of receivers on the roster up to 11 with only one WR, Mike Harley, seeming as if he might not be on the team next season. Should Harley leave, Miami would only have two receivers with multiple starts to their name, Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins.



Redshirt Probability: 4/10

Miami’s receiver room has numbers, but very little proven and consistent playmakers at the moment. The play of Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins has been shaky at best in 2020, leaving the door open for someone to take their starting job or at least eat into their snaps. Brinson will arrive on campus in January giving him an entire offseason and spring practice to work his way up the depth chart.

"Should Harley leave, Miami would only have two receivers with multiple starts to their name, Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins." Maybe better off if they left. and opened up some spots.
 
Is that hudl from his senior year? I can't seem to find the senior year tape. Hoping this kid can take a spot early.
 
This is an elite pickup. What he did to Marshall was impressive. If this was a normal year with all star games, I'm pretty sure Mello would've climbed the rankings to top 50 in the nation.

I'm going to say, he will be our next 1k yard WR.
He ain't do nothing to Marshall lol. He's a good receiver though
 
Diaz needs to be called out by every journalist that covers the Canes if Redding, Payton, Smith, Smith and Brinson aren't the top 5 wr's next season. Throw in Restrepo on kickoffs and punts.
 
Someone has to be able to take Wiggins and Popes spots (barring they miraculously improve).

Payton, Worsham, Redding,K Smith, Restrepo, Brinson, George, or B.Smith? You mean to tell me that two of that group can’t out perform those two pieces of garbage?
 
Y'all literally saw ONE clip of Brinson beating him on a slant route (that wasn't even a completed pass.) His catches came against Marc Charlemagne & Corey Collier.

It was more than one clip. I’m not saying Marshall trash but he was getting mixed.
