The Bank (9/22)

- As first reported in the Bank, Miami is making a strong run at Lakeland WR Tyler Williams. There is even more confidence this week than last. Of course, this week’s visit to Miami will be critical. The key selling point is our need at wide receiver. Williams has WR1 upside with a unique athletic profile as a kick returner/basketball player/former quarterback.

-Miami will not take WRs just to take them. They want difference-makers, and will keep working potential flips locally. The Portal will fill out the rest.

- Don’t be surprised to see some new names pop on the LB board. This has nothing to do with the current commits, but Miami is quietly monitoring players who are having strong seasons at high school and JUCO ranks. We need more bodies at this position.

- Miami continues to put the full-court press on Mark Fletcher (American Heritage) and Chris Johnson, Jr. (Dillard) at running back. They are high-priority targets and Miami continues to feel it is in a good spot with both.

- The same is true for OT Samson Okunlola (Brockton, MA). His recruitment is quiet but Miami is confident where they stand. If he follows through and visits for the FSU game, and Miami shows him what he needs to see, this recruitment can speed up considerably.

- Apologies for the cryptic post, but Miami is making a run at certain out-of-state players committed to other teams. Some of the names are familiar.

- Miami is continuing to work Sam M’Pemba (IMG), Reuben Bain (Central) and Damon Wilson (Venice). The pull with M’Pemba is the Miami/IMG connection. The staff is working hard to cement a pipeline. That pitch will be even better as our IMG signees start producing. Bain is intrigued by out-of-state college atmospheres but remains firmly in play. We have lost a bit of ground with Wilson but there is still time to work that one.

- Defensive tackle is still a work in progress. This is one position where it is critical to identify late bloomers. Darrell Jackson, Jared Harrison-Hunte and Jordan Miller all fit into that category, as does last year’s signee Ahmad Moten (who is opening eyes in practice). It’s also possible you see players listed as DEs pursued as DTs.

- I expect Miami to have CB Damari Brown (American Heritage) and CB Edwin Joseph (Chaminade) join CB Robert Stafford (Eau Gallie) in the class within weeks. All three are having excellent senior years. The board is less clear at safety, although Miami is still working Conrad Hussey (STA) and will pursue Portal options. Note that some of the CBs Miami is recruiting have positional versatility.

What is plan C after Tyler, since JD is plan A?
 
Sucks to be losing ground on Wilson but otherwise extremely positive news. Hard to believe Williams picks us over UGA but I can at least see it being more realistic if he follows through with his visit this weekend.

Love it!

Let’s get TW by next Tuesday and Damari and Edwin by end of the month.

Should we be worried about DT recruiting? And is Jordan Hall still in play?

I like the fact that we are targeting playmaker-type receivers and that is what we need definitely so going forward we also need some more pass rushers.
