The Miami Hurricanes secured a top ten recruiting class yesterday on National Signing Day. Miami already had a commitment from the number six overall prospect in Leonard Taylor and the class got a late boost from four-star quarterback Jake Garcia. Garcia is the number 18 ranked prospect by ESPN and he should be the future at the position for the Canes. Miami really succeeded in recruiting South Florida where they pulled an overwhelming majority of their players from. Andy Vaughn, director of player personnel, joined The Joe Rose Show on Thursday morning and spoke about how important it was for Miami to win the recruiting battle in their own backyard.
Vaughn said, “We want to win South Florida and we’re going to move up from there and nationally if we can develop those relationships and if we feel there’s a strong tie to the area or it’s a good fit we are going to move outside of that but we also want to win South Florida and Florida first.”
Miami is still waiting for a bowl invite to see if they can finish their season strong with a ninth win.
