Miami received a commitment from four-star 2019 DB Te'Cory Couch, who had previously been committed to Michigan.

Couch's commitment to the Wolverines lasted two months, and -- at least for now -- he's set to join the Hurricanes. It's a big get for the Miami class, as Couch is considered one of the best defensive backs in the class. He's not the biggest player in the class (5'10/165), but he's considered an exceptional athlete, and his leaping ability along with his cover skills could allow him to play on the outside -- at least on the collegiate level.

Miami freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard has been clocked by the school at 4.27 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Lingard (6'0/180) also joined the track team at Miami and was installed as the anchor leg in the 4x100 relay. The five-star recruit has blazing speed but is still "powerful" according to scouts. Lingard should have an opportunity to make an immediate impact on the Hurricanes offense in 2018 as a true freshman.

NFL.com's Chase Goodbread ranks Miami Junior LB Shaquille Quarterman 12th on his list of future NFL defensive stars.

Goodbread applauds his consistency and wrote, "Since arriving as a freshman in 2016, Quarterman has started all 26 Miami games, with virtually the same tackle production in each of two seasons (84 as a freshman, 83 as a sophomore)." Goodbread is also excited by the idea of Quarterman having former Hurricanes star and Carolina Panthers first-round pick Jon Beason as a mentor. Quarterman looks the part of a future NFL player and will likely be one of the top linebackers off the board next April if his consistency carries over to the upcoming season.

Michigan four-star 2019 verbal CB commit Te'Cory Couch reopened his recruitment.

Couch (5'10/165) pledged to Michigan in April, though 247Sports' Steve Lorenz refers to that initial decision as "somewhat surpris[ing]." However, after committing during an official visit to Ann Arbor, he took a number of visits to Miami. The Hurricanes will almost certainly be a major player for his services -- perhaps the favorite -- now that the cornerback has returned to the open market. On the 247Sports composite board, Couch slides in as the No. 244 overall prospect in the 2019 class. While his spurning of Michigan does hurt, the Wolverines are still in play to land a top-10 class.

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) has been medically cleared to take part in summer workouts.

"I am 100 percent go. I'm doing great, feeling better than ever. I am about right there, running routes and all that stuff," Richards said. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder was limited to just six games last season, sustaining a severe hamstring injury in August camp -- he says he tore it, though that has not been confirmed by the team -- which kept him out of action early on and then later seeing his season shut down altogether courtesy of a torn meniscus in his left knee sustained during a late November practice. When healthy, Richards is one of the most dynamic receivers in the country. Miami does have some wiggle room to play matters cautiously with the talented junior as the flow of workouts and camp dictate, as the team's receiving corp is loaded to the gills with intriguing talent.

Miami redshirt senior WR Dayall Harris has left the team and will seek a graduate transfer.

Harris (6'3/195) made minimal impact with the Hurricanes after signing on as a three-star JUCO prospect in the 2016 class. Over his two seasons in Coral Gables, the wideout logged a 19-182-2 receiving line. During the most recent campaign, he was hit with a multi-game suspension in September for violating team rules. Harris was unable to make a dent on the depth chart this spring and will try to find a more palatable situation for playing time with his upcoming transfer. Moving on as a graduate, he'll be eligible to play immediately with his team to-be during the coming season.

Miami junior RB Travis Homer said that one of his focuses this offseason has been improving his strength and stamina.

"I think you’re going to see a lot of different weights go up and our speed getting faster. I like it … I’ve been working on strength, upper body, lower body," Homer explained, adding that all this work should help him to pick up blocks in pass protection. After opening the 2017 season as backup to Mark Walton, the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder was forced into starting action after Walton sustained a season-ending ankle injury midway through the campaign. All told, the then-sophomore wrapped the past year having rushed for 966 yards (5.9 YPC) and eight touchdowns while posting an 18-219-1 receiving line. With Walton moving on to the pro ranks, Homer will have a chance for robust numbers in Coral Gables this coming season.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson reports that Miami senior T Tyree St. Louis could start at left tackle for the Hurricanes in 2018.

St. Louis has started the last 21 games for Miami at right tackle, but Adelson notes that St. Louis ended the spring on the left side. "The Hurricanes have to replace the entire starting left side of their offensive line, with KC McDermott and Trevor Darling gone," she writes. "But that remains a work in progress after a spring in which the line struggled to play consistently." St. Louis could see his draft stock improve dramatically if he starts at left tackle and performs well in the ACC in 2018.

Miami freshman DE Gregory Rousseau posted a pair of sacks in the team's spring game.

Rosseau (6'7/250) is a player whom Tom VanHaaren suspects could push for playing time as a true freshman. He was a strong performer not only in the team's spring game, but throughout the spring practice gauntlet. Rousseau is a prime candidate to outperform his recruiting ranking as he embarks on his collegiate career -- he signed with the Hurricanes as a three-star prospect over the winter.

Miami (FL) and UAB have agreed to play in 2020.

The game will take place on September 19 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Not surprisingly, it won't be a home-and-home series. Miami still has one more non-conference game to add to their schedule, as they now have the Blazers along with Michigan State and Temple scheduled.

Miami (FL) received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Keontra Smith, who had previously been committed to Kentucky.

Smith was a long-time verbal for the Wildcats, but he's now a member of the Hurricanes' recruiting class. He was also considering Michigan, Alabama, Auburn and Florida; among others. He ranks as the 13th best safety in the class according to 247 Sports, and the 25th best player out of the state of Florida.

Miami (FL) received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 OLB Avery Huff.

Huff ranks as the 20th best outside linebacker on 247 Sports composite rankings, and the 50th best player in the always impressive state of Florida. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound linebacker picks the Hurricanes over offers from schools like Alabama, Penn State, Texas and South Carolina. He'll certainly need to get stronger, but Huff is an athletic defender who could help the Miami defense in the coming seasons.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson passes along that Miami redshirt senior DT Gerald Willis was "virtually unblockable" during spring practice.

Yowza. Adelson forwarded the 6-foot-2, 280-pound Willis as Miami's breakout performer of the spring. We're eagerly anticipating his upcoming redshirt senior campaign, as he took a leave of absence from the team a year ago and did not play a snap for the club during the 2017 season. Per Adelson, coaches have been encouraged by what they've seen from Willis in his maturation as both a player and a human being this year. Willis came to Miami in 2015 via transfer after he ran into off-field troubles at Florida.

Miami QB coach Jon Richt said in mid-April that redshirt freshman QB N'Kosi Perry had done a "great job."

"He’s getting up there understanding what the defense is doing and maybe making some adjustments to get us in a better play," said Richt, who used variations on the term "learning" several times when speaking about Perry. The mental process of the game has not yet completely slowed down for the 6-foot-4, 187-pound dual-threat signal-caller -- he still has a tendency to overthink at times -- but it's starting to get there. Perry may well be Miami's best shot at a real Playoff run down the road, but it's unlikely that Miami hands the keys over to him in August camp unless he outright beats incumbent starter Malik Rosier in competition. As alluring as an upside prospect like Perry might be (he's drawn comparisons to Lamar Jackson in his athleticism), this will be Rosier's job to lose.

Miami and HC Mark Richt agreed to a contract extension through the 2023 season.

Richt helped guide Miami to the ACC Championship Game last season -- they fell to Clemson in that title showdown and would end the campaign losing to Wisconsin in bowl action -- with the Hurricanes posting their first 10-win season since all the way back in 2003. We'll see if they can crack the Playoff field this autumn.
