Brinson commits to Canes, has sights set on UM receiving records

Stefan Adams
2021 Miami Northwestern WR Romello Brinson was on campus 2 weeks back for UM’s huge Junior Day event that saw them land 5 commitments on the day. The excitement that new head coach Manny Diaz is building in Coral Gables is palpable and Brinson felt it was time for him to join the party as well. After taking a few days to think things over, Brinson committed to the staff last Friday before announcing his intentions on Sunday, becoming Miami’s 9th commit in the 2021 class.

“The coaches were very excited to hear that I committed,” Brinson said. “I told them at junior day I would do it, but they didn’t believe me until I committed.”

On the visit, Brinson was able to simulate being a Hurricane by taking pictures in uniform and taking part in a mock position room meeting with the staff. The experience gave him an opportunity to bond with new WR coach Taylor Stubblefield, who landed his first-ever commitment at UM in Brinson.

“Junior day was fun,” Brinson said. “The best part was being able to just sit down in my position meeting room with coach Stubblefield to see what the future holds for me when I officially join the surge.”

The 6’2”, 170 pound pass-catcher is still nearly two years away from his signing day, but the environment created at Miami made him feel like there was no point in waiting on a decision.

“The players and the coaches make you and your family feels like you’re at home,” Brinson said. “They treat you as if you one of their sons.”

While Brinson doesn’t rule out visiting other schools in the future to enjoy the process, he says his mind is essentially already made up.

“I’m still going to leave my recruiting open a bit, but I’m really all in with Miami,” Brinson said.

If you were wondering what type of player UM has landed, well, Brinson says to expect some highlight reel moments when you watch him on the field.

“I’m a big playmaker that catches the ball very well and can turn a 5 yard catch into a big play,” Brinson said.

934 yards. That’s what Brinson is shooting for in his first season at Miami. The significance? It’s the freshman receiving record at Miami, held by Ahmmon Richards.

“I want to beat Ahmmon’s record,” Brinson said of his freshman year goals. “I think I can do it.”

And his message to the Canes’ fans out there that have followed his recruitment?

“I would like to say thank y’all for showing so much love.”

Open to what?

Not happy about those two statements. Been there before

Lets see what Luke would say, this is one of his kids.
 
Y’all are over thinking it. He was waiting for this offer just like Brantley was...the kid basically said he was going to enjoy being recruited but is locked in. At least he’s telling you unlike Gilbert did.

My guess is that he means he's just going to take his visits and enjoy them but firmly be committed to miami.
 
Diaz has already sent the message that he and his staff will not wait around for kids to decide. Commitments means squat today, agreed.
But at least we are hearing the right things from these commits. I didn't hear any excitement from last years commits.
Canes need to win the Florida game and they will be favored in every game after that. The 2019 schedule is set up to right the ship.
Long way to go but right now- 6 weeks after the bowl debacle, and Diaz headed to Temple, things have improved
dramatically.
I know one thing for sure, we would not have as many quality commits today, had Richt not stepped aside.
