Miami Pressing for 2017 RB Felix

Miami Pressing for 2017 RB Felix

Tito Benach
Fort Myers (Fla.) running back Darrian Felix showed everyone his athleticism on Sunday at the Nike Opening Orlando Regional by not only winning the running back MVP award, but also recording the highest spare rating at 128.76.

Felix has been hearing from schools ever since his freshman year and now has 10 offers including Miami, Louisville, West Virginia and Boston College.

The Hurricanes have been in contact with Felix since his freshman year and with new head coach Mark Richt now at the helm, the Hurricanes haven’t let up on letting Felix know he’s wanted in Coral Gables.

“Miami is talking to me everyday, I’m usually talking with coach (Craig Kuligowski) Kool and coach (Mike) Rumph,” Felix said. “They can’t wait for me to get down there and meet them”

Felix hasn’t visited Miami in the past year, but has plans of getting on campus during the teams spring football sessions.

The 5’10 189 pound running back said he will mostly be focused on the atmosphere and the relationship the players have down in Miami.

“I’m just trying to see how they interact with each other, the teammates and I’m just trying to get a feel for the school.”

Felix also speaks with head coach Mark Richt on Twitter and says he enjoys speaking with Richt due to his focused nature.

“We go back and forth on Twitter a lot, I like him a lot,” Felix said. “He’s a cool guy, he’s determined to want to be great and I like that about him.”

The Cardinals are also in the mix for the Fort Myers product and says he does plan on visiting sometime soon.

“I speak with Coach Denson from Louisville, I’ll probably visiting sometime during the summer,” Felix said.

Felix will also be seeing the West Virginia Mountaineers on March 13th and the North Carolina Tar Heels on April 2nd.

Want him at CB or WR over RB, but would let him choose whatever position he wants to play. Huge recruit.

Gotta be worth someone chasing in south florida, no need to leave the area for running back.

I may be in the minority when I say this, but my gut feeling is that one of Robert Burns or Bentavious Thompson won't sign with Miami, so I think Felix being recruited by Miami heavily makes sense in the long run.

The kid flies... I'd take him over Thompson, hope it doesn't hurt us with his teammates.

Any Idea which of the two committed is most likely to stick?
 
These new age kids see all teams and their favorite team might not be an in state school. The only way we will regain dedicated appeal to the new age kids in SoFl and The S Of M in general is to win and win national TV games. Simple as that.

IMO you take Felix no matter what as an ATH and figure out his position when he gets on campus
 
I know there's crossover in recruiting with positions and geography but it was interesting that they also have Kool working this kid.

Not so excited with Thompson's tape. I think Burns and Felix are better prospects.
