During the course of spring practice for the Miami Hurricanes, UM has tons of recruits attending practices.
Last Thursday, Miami offered two studs from Oakleaf HS 2020 DE Chantz Williams and 2020 OL Jalen Rivers.
Chantz “It’s truly a blessing,” Willams said. “I didn’t expect the offer to come, so that’s what makes it more special.”
Jalen “It’s a dream come true,” Rivers said. “I’m shocked honestly.”
Both Chantz and Jalen told CanesInSight that they didn’t have a favorite school growing up, but if they had to choose one, it would be the Miami Hurricanes.
Chantz “I never really had a favorite school growing up,” Williams said “I was raised in a Miami Household and when i would go over Jalen’s house it would be all Miami, so i really like Miami.”
Jalen “Growing up, my household was all of the U,” Rivers said “When Chantz would come over and we would always talk about Miami and stuff, so Miami has always been in my heart."
Chantz and Jalen were able to speak to an alum of their high school: Shaq Quaterman.
Chantz “Shaq is the man,” Williams said. “He couldn’t show us around because he had classes and stuff, but when he was able to be with us. He was talking to us about Miami and why this place is so great.”
Jalen “Shaq is always there for anyone in the Oakleaf community,” Rivers said. “He wants us to do great things at Oakleaf and he wants us to be Miami Hurricanes.”
Mark Richt and the staff told Chantz and Jalen that they’re welcomed anytime on campus.
