Imo Miami will sign a very good class on nsd. Despite all the naysayers this is a great class to have right after the 2016 class. We took care of our qb situation very well. Perry looks like an absolute stud and looks like he has put on 10-15 pounds since the season ended. Wheldon is an underrated get as well. We are good at this spot for years to come with talented arms on the roster with Allison, sheriffs, perry and Weldon. A starter will come out of that group

Rb
Walton
Homer
Gray
Burns

Transfer
Probably tyshone dye from clemson

All in all I'm definitely not worried about this group. We have a talented group. Losing mcfarland hurts but we will definitely be fine
If you forgot what Robert burns can do.... take a look at this... https://youtu.be/rITHJGpvPXo
most complete running back (size and speed) we have signed since Lamar miller. Walton is an absolute stud and the best returning back in the acc. Homer is extremely talented as well. Gray will provide something too. He's a big fast back but has to refine his skill. He can help us for sure this year.

We signed 2 of our top 3 targets on offensive line in Donaldson and Herbert. Also found what appears to be a diamond in the ruff with gaynor. Solid pickup with hillery as well. We will see what dykstra brings. George brown another quality player that is added to the mix with a group that only loses 2starters in isidora and gall. The oline will be better next year based on experience of darling, gautheir, McDermott,st Louis, linder, odogwu and then you add the young talent in as well as brown.

Receiver
With how bleak this receiving recruiting class looked at the end of December. If we finish with Thomas, Harley, njoku and deejay dallas( playing Slot receiver in spring) then you have to give credit where it's due. That's a great finish

Thomas is a consensus top 5 receiver in the country and would be a top 5 db if that's where he wanted to play. He's that good. Back in the summer he was one of bamas top 3 overall receiver targets. Would be a great get
Harley has had an impressive senior campaign and was beating everyone he lined up against at the army game. He brings another level of speed into a receiver corps.
Njoku is a tall receiver who will be used much like his brother at Miami except he's a bit faster. Will be flexed our a lot and create mis matches up the seem. On his official visit there was a pic where he looked to be 3 inches taller than David and not that much smaller. Imo I'm not entirely sold that he won't grow into a tight end. I can definitely see it happening. Deejay Dallas will still probably play both sides of the ball. He's very talented and is electric with the ball in his hands.
You add those 4 to a group that has ahmmon richards, Lawrence cager, dionte Mullins, berrios and Harris. That's a talented group plain and simple:

On defense
Dj Johnson is one of the top defensive ends in the country. 6'4.5 245 pounds or so and is very athletic. Finished with 60 plus tackles 30 tackles for loss and 15 sacks. We got to Continue to stacks chips in our great front 7.

Jon garvin is one of the best talents that will be in this class. He's extremely disruptive in the backfield. I mean he had 58 tfl 90 plus tackles and 25 sacks in 9 games... that's astronomical numbers tbh. Legit 6'5 235--240 he's a big kid.

Jon ford
Very underrated kid in this class. Should be very productive and will be primed to start after next year imo.


Linebacker
Brought in a bunch of good linebackers that can hit and run. Steed looks to be in the mold of Sean spence with how he can run and makes plays in the backfield. Deandre wilder will be a jermaine grace type of player and will fit perfectly in this defense. Jennings brings another physical presence and packs a punch when he hits. Pretty good haul and will immediately add depth to that spot

Cb
Bandy is a Miami savage and plays with more heart than most players on the field. Brings speed and toughness at corner. Should see the field often and early

Henderson if he comes is still raw at the postion but is EXTREMELY talented. Has all the skills you want from a corner. Great size and speed combo, can cover and if you watch Columbus plays he's pretty physical and will tackle. Would be a big time addition.

Jhavontae dean

Same type of player as Henderson just a little more polished than him in coverage because he has played longer. Great size,speed and coverage ability. I know people worry about his Production but in some games they just didn't throw his way according to ivins and other reporters.

Edwards

Physical corner and can play right away plain and simple. Would be a big time pickup on the trail.
All in all if we land them to a group that has young and redwine. That's a pretty talented group..

Safety
Derrick smith is a big physical safety who happens to have the ability to cover and is pretty quick for a guy his size. I like his playmaking ability at safety.

Amari carter

Brings a big physical presence. Will be one of the hardest hitters on the team. Need to see more in coverage but he will play early next year as well as Romeo Finley.

All in all if the class adds those additions we will have filled the holes on the roster with a lot of talent and will have strengthened most if not all positions on the roster.

It's a B+ class. It's good, but not elite. We need to start pulling in consensus top 8 classes soon, but to do that...we have to win on the field.

That's your prediction, or are you stating that with some degree of surety? Seriously
If we land
Thomas 4star
Henderson 4 star
Harley 4star
Dean 4star
Edwards 3 star
With us already having the 14th class being only with a 231 rating on the composite. Only 7 points seperate miami from 11th place. Some of the classes ahead of Miami have 24 plus commitments and full

Exactly closing with Bryant , Edwards,Henderson,Thomas, Harley , Dean, and possibly Pouncy and bateman is a top 6-10 class . A all the way. Hell I bet we sign someone else as well we aren't even talking about .

Those commits put us right at 8. plus I'm not sure the ranking reflect Harely and Anjou earning their 4th star.

We will land more then just that but your point is correct. Zero chance our class is outside the top 10 .

Sounds like at this point, there are only two guys we're really waiting on, Henderson and Edwards. Of course, Thomas and Harley have yet to commit too, so anything can happen there still. Anyone else I'm missing? Im also wondering if there's not a guy out there we've never heard about who could come into the fold on SD. In the end, if we land all our verbals, plus those four guys (I'm counting Pouncey out as well), we will have stocked up nicely at every position of need and this will absolutely be a class that we can win a title with down the road. I'm with you Brock, this is good ****.

Upvote realistically if we close with that class only loss was McFarland down the stretch and nothing we could've done kid had a change of heart. Pair this class with last year and we got playmakers stop looking at who doesn't come instead of the ballers we're getting. Next year we'll sign an elite class and Miami will be where it needs to be soon watch.

Good outlook. We can finish with a very good class and next year we can work towards an elite class. Thanks for putting in the effort, [MENTION=1740]brock[/MENTION].
