Recruiting Radar: Miami Hurricanes rookies. prospects in the All-American Bowl
There are 2 major All-Star High School Football games: the US Army Game and the Under Armor All-American Team Game. Top players from across the country travel to San Antonio and Orlando respectively to show off their skills and take on other top players.
The UA game was last weekend. Miami didn’t have such a big presence at this event with CB signer Khamauri Rogers still recovering from a seasonal ACL tear and unable to compete. And, several other players in the game are interested in Miami, especially with new coach Mario Cristobal in the building, but none signed up for Miami last weekend, so there wasn’t much going on. to say about this event.
This is definitely NOT the case for today’s All-American Bowl. There are several commits in Miami, a few players who might turn into Canes commits during the game, a few other players than Target Miami are playing in the game, and a few familiar names on the recruiting trail who have chosen to go elsewhere as well.
Let’s eliminate the details of the game so you can watch:
Kick-off time: 1:00 p.m. East (12:00 p.m. Center)
Now that that’s settled, here are the players to know ahead of today’s game.
This is the team you’re probably going to start for, as this is the team with the players who have already signed with Miami and are definitely heading to the Gables. And there is also another target in the Eastern team.
TE Jaleel Skinner 4 stars. The nation’s No.3 TE, Skinner, from Greer, South Carolina, attended IMG Academy Bradenton (FL) for his senior season. Skinner shocked and signed with Miami on the last day of the early signing period, when Alabama, the team he was originally signed to, expected to receive his NLI. You like to see it.
The 6’5 ”, 220lb Skinner will wear the number 0 for the East team in today’s game.
4 stars DE Nyjalik Kelly. Currently the top ranked player in Miami’s recruiting class of 2022, this dynamic Ft. Lauderdale (FL) rusher Dillard HS is one of the top-ranked players in the country. It has a good size, a quick first step and can bend the edge well when rushing the passer.
Kelly will wear number 9 in the East team.
DL Christen Miller 4 stars. At 6’4 “285lb DT, Miller is from Ellenwood (GA) Cedar Grove HS. All the usual suspects have enlisted Miller en masse – Alabama, GA, Ohio state – but Miami, under new management, is also taking on this talented defender. Miller placed Miami in its recently released top 5, along with Oregon, Ohio State, Georgia, and Florida A&M University (an HBCU located in Tallahassee for those wondering).
Miller will wear the number 52 for the Eastern team in today’s game.
While the East team counts players who have previously announced and signed with Miami, the West team has several Miami targets on the roster, including a pair of prospects who are expected to announce their college engagements during. the game. So the West team should have a LOT of your attention during this game as well.
4 stars WR Kevin Coleman Jr. An electric playmaker, the 5’11 “170lb Coleman is from St. Louis (MO) St. Mary’s Catholic. He is a dynamic player in space and can make an impact on the game as a man. returning and as the receiver of the inside and outside rosters. Coleman Jr. is expected to announce his All-American Bowl entry today, and the decision of his finalist group (which also includes Oregon and USC) returns probably Miami or FSU Miami has a strong trend here lately.
Coleman will wear Team West number 1 in today’s game.
DE Cyrus Moss 4 stars. A towering 6’6 “220lb OLB / DE, Moss hails from Bishop Gorman HS of Las Vegas (NV). This is the same HS program that produced former Canes TE Brevin Jordan, QB Tate Martell and S Bubba Bolden. Miami looks to exploit the relationship with this program once again to get Moss to squeeze the DE class books in front of Kelly. In addition to being a great player, Moss is also a finalist for the All-American Bowl Man of the Year.. Like Coleman Jr., Moss is expected to announce his college engagement during the game. And, as with Coleman, Miami is also all the rage here.
Moss will wear number 11 for Team West in today’s game.
CTÉ NOTE: Coleman and Moss, in that order, would be the top-rated players in the Miami class if they signed up with the Canes today. So anyway, Miami should be added to the class, to the TOP of the class. This is how you do it.
5 stars OL Joshua Conerly Jr. A 6’5 “275lb tackle, Conerly hails from Seattle (WA) Rainier Beach HS. He recently received the Anthony Muñoz award as the nation’s best lineman in the 2022 class, so his pedigree, his talent. and its performances speak for themselves.
Miami is trying to capitalize on their relationship with Conerly, namely HS Cristobal and OL coach Mirabal who recruited him from Oregon when they worked for the Ducks, to try to make inroads with Conerly Jr as the cycle progresses towards National Signing Day in February.
Conerly will wear the number 55 for Team West in today’s game.
RB TreVonte ‘Citizen 4 stars. A 6’0 “217lb dynamic backstroke, Citizen is a native of Lake Charles (LA) Prep HS. He was previously engaged at his home school – LSU – but disengaged following the change of coach of the Tigers. Miami has come often in recent weeks for Citizen after offering it to him, but his reported closest relationship is with Auburn and former coach / star RB Cadillac Williams. So, a grain of salt here.
Citizen will wear the number 2 for the West team in today’s game.
I’m going to put that in a list form, but several other players that Miami was recruiting this cycle but engaged elsewhere are in this game. So when you see them and you think “wait, don’t I know that name?” ” you’re not crazy. You do. They just chose to go elsewhere.
- OL Julien Armella
- WR Isaiah Bond
- OL Andrew Chamblee
- BY Marvin Jones Jr.
- CB Earl Little Jr.
- LB DeMario Tolan
This should prepare you for watching today’s All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
Oh, and for those wondering when Coleman Jr. and Moss announce their decisions, the two should pick up the mic in the 4th quarter of today’s game.
I’ll end with a poll, because I like to do that sort of thing. And I know I’ve been away recently, but yanno … life. Thank you for rocking with us all along.
