Michael McLaughlin has all the prerequisites of an offensive tackle. At 6'7"/290, Michael has grown tremendously since committing to Miami. He'll need to build strength and refine his technique, but the upside is definitely there for the future.
Malik Curtis is lightning in a bottle. He brings SPEED and athleticism to the table. He is also very versatile, playing cornerback, wide receiver and kick returner.. Miami will start Malik on defense but don't be surprised to see him stretching opposing offenses as a slot receiver in the future.
Allan Haye is a big, athletic and disruptive defensive tackle. He's got an excellent take-off and hand placement. Allan will need to acclimate to the speed of the game at the college level and gain functional strength, but down the line he has the potential to be a very disruptive force in Miami's attacking scheme.
Thad Franklin is a powerfully built, tough, durable, and explosive running back. He has good feet, a powerful lower-body, great lateral vision, plays behind his pads and delivers blows on contact. Can be a workhorse back and a force inside the redzone.

Kahlil Brantley is a natural pass-catching tight end. He's versatile, can play wide or inside. Strong hands, and a great knack for making tough catches, particularly in the red zone. He will need to grow in size and strength, but Kahlil has the potential to be another dangerous Miami tight end down the line.
Deshawn Troutman is explosive, tough-nosed, instinctual and great leader. Takes good angles and stays square to the line of scrimmage. Deshawn is a fierce and relentless hitter. In short, he's a playmaker. He will need to gain body mass and functional strength, but will immediately contribute on special teams.
Elijah Arroyo is a lengthy, athletic pass-catching tight end. He has great leaping ability and good hands, thus a potential red zone threat. For his size, Elijah has demonstrated good run-after-catch skill. He must gain size and strength to be effective in a run blocking capacity. Also needs to refine his route running techniques, particularly with take-off and breaks.
Chase Smith is the prototypical Miami striker. He posses good length and athleticism. He is very athletic, so he can play effectively in space but still tough enough to stop the run. Chase has excellent change of direction and is relentless in his pursuit. These are all unique skills perfect for defense against college spread offenses.
Romello Brinson is a tall, fast, athletic wide receiver who can stretch the field with his deep threat skills. He has long arms and a long stride. Romello is an exposive playmaker, with excellent body control to make difficult catches. Must gain weight and get stronger. Also needs to improve his route running and releases. A true deep threat that defenses must always be aware.
Thomas Davis is the epitome of a Miami edge DE. His great speed, lateral quickness, and explosive first step makes him a dangerous pass rusher. Thomas plays with a great twitch. A relentless tackler, Thomas' speed and relentlessness wreak havoc all over the field.

His relentless pursuit of quarterbacks and excellent reach lives up to Miami's aggressive defensive reputation at that position. Jabari also brings versatility, able to play in space as a linebacker, if needed. Needs to gain weight and strength.
Laurence Seymore is an extremely physical road grader at offensive guard. Known as "Big Baby," Laurence is a fierce competitor with a compact build on a wide base. He can be dominating inside and loves to finish with a pancake block. Plays with good leverage and doesn't take plays off. He relishes getting after people.
Tyler Johnson is an explosive, tough and hard-hitting linebacker. He demonstrates good change of direction and is a particularly good pass rusher off the edge. His quickness and tough presence comes up big against the run. Tyler is the younger brother of former Cane safety Jaquan Johnson.
Bradshard Smith is a dynamic playmaker at wide receiver. He's lightning with the ball in his hands. Brashard has very good lower body strength and elite acceleration, thus excellent yards-after-catch ability. He's a perfect fit in Miami's spread, high tempo offense. The Canes plan to use Brashard out of the slot position but can be very explosive all over the field, even as a wildcat.
Leonard Taylor is an elite 5-star defensive tackle, #1 DT and #10 overall prospect in the nation. Leonard is extremely athletic and plays with an outstanding moter. His explosive first step and ability to quickly penetrate the opposing backfield leads to tackles for loss and sacks.

He plays with a great motor and relentlessness. He is very smooth in coverage and fluid enough take on big tight ends. His range is very good and he can come downhill in the box to squash a ball carrier. Some analysts feel he will grow into a linebacker. However, Miami is all in for him at safety.
Jake Garcia is the #5 pro-style quarterback in the 2021 national recruiting class. He's a natural field general with a strongm and accurate arm. Jake has a quick release and excellent touch on the ball. OC Lashlee's QBs require fast decisions and a quick release. Garcia excels in both areas. He's mobille and can extending plays with his legs, if necessary. or throw accurately on the run.
