Miami received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 WR Brieon Fuller.

An odd recruiting story for your Friday. Fuller initially committed to Miami at 6:00 PM EST on Wednesday night, but at about 6:00 AM EST on Thursday, he tweeted that he was reopening his recruitment. Both his initial commitment and subsequent decommitment tweets were then deleted, at which point he told CaneSport that he was sticking with Miami. Given that rapid-fire series of pledges/non-pledges, this should probably be considered a soft commitment. As for what he will bring to the Hurricanes on the field down the road (assuming he actually sticks with this one), the 6-foot-1, 179-pounder's coach at Doral Academy (Florida) said that Fuller's aggressiveness and physicality "pops off film."

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell called Miami four-star 2018 verbal TE commit Brevin Jordan's pledge the most surprising in the ACC at this juncture.

"Many felt Jordan would head to UCLA with his buddy and teammate Dorian Thompson-Robinson," Farrell writes. He speculates that Miami's success pumping tight ends into the NFL could have played a role in the 6-foot-3, 230-pounder's pledge to Mark Richt's outfit. Jordan ranks as Rivals' No. 106 overall prospect in the 2018 cycle. The Hurricanes currently house the outlet's No. 1 recruiting class for that cycle, having already netted commitments from 12 four-star recruits.

Miami redshirt senior T Sunny Odogwu will transfer as a graduate.

"Sunny and I had a good conversation, and he informed me that he feels his best opportunity to get the most playing time would be at another school," said HC Mark Richt in a statement. The 6-foot-8, 318-pounder saw 13 starts over a span of three active seasons with the Hurricanes. Nine of those starts came at right tackle during the 2015 season. With Odogwu moving on, that right tackle job looks like it is Tyree St. Louis' to lose.

All eight Hurricane defenders who recorded at least six TFL and two sacks last season return in 2017.

Miami allowed just 18.5 points per game last season, and they may well be better in 2017. The front seven is led by disruptive defensive ends Joe Jackson and Chad Thomas, who combined for 21.5 TFL and 12 sacks in 2016. Junior DT RJ McIntosh Jr. led all Hurricane linemen in total tackles and recorded multiple tackles in 12 of 13 games last season. Bleacher Report's Kerry Miller pointed to McIntosh as a candidate to make a star turn in 2017.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy writes that Miami three-star 2018 verbal OL commit Delone Scaife "was dominant at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp" earlier this spring.

"His effectiveness will grow as he takes off bad weight and adds muscle," Cassidy writes. "Scaife has impressively light feet for a prospect of his size, but his lower body strength is what sets him apart." The 6-foot-4, 283-pounder has been committed to the Hurricanes since last July. He ranks as Rivals' No. 73 prospect in the state of Florida for the 2018 cycle.

NFL Media's Chad Reuter says Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards is "an amazing talent" and "as smooth off the line as any receiver I've seen in recent years."

"He's not only a fast strider, but has great hands and can make defenders miss with stop-start action," Reuter wrote. The analyst ranked Richards as the No. 29 player in all of college football. Richards set the Miami freshman record for receiving yards last season, leading the Canes with 934 receiving yards and finishing second with 49 receptions. He also had three touchdown receptions and averaged 19.1 yards per catch en route to Freshman All-American honors.

Miami redshirt junior RB Trayone Gray (ACL) remained out during spring practices.

Gray missed last season after tearing his ACL in fall camp. He's already doing non-contact work, so we'd guess he'll be ready to go this summer.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson cites Miami junior DT Kendrick Norton as the team's best pro prospect.

The 6-foot-3, 312-pound Norton earned third-team All-ACC honors from ACC coaches after last season. A breakout campaign is likely on tap for the former four-star defensive tackle prospect. "He has the size, strength and power to start climbing up draft charts on a defense that should be among the best in the country in 2018," Adelson wrote.

Miami redshirt sophomore QB Evan Shirreffs completed 7-of-17 passes for 75 yards and an interception in the team's final scrimmage of the spring.

Miami doesn't put on a full-fledged spring game, but their final spring scrimmage essentially serves that purpose. Shirreffs failed to truly impress, but remains locked in a battle with Malik Rosier (8-of-18 passes for 169 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions) to replace Brad Kaaya heading into the summer. The wild card in this competition is true freshman QB N'Kosi Perry, who will be joining the team by August camp. ESPN's Andrea Adelson believes that the "safe assumption is that Perry will play at some point this season."

Broncos signed Miami S Jamal Carter.

Carter (6’1/218) made only 15 starts in four years as a Hurricane, finishing with 1.5 tackles for loss, ten pass breakups, and two interceptions. He did lead Miami in tackles (85) as a senior. Carter is a well-built physical specimen, but his ball skills were below average in college and he mainly played center-field safety at Miami, a position that doesn’t suit Carter’s NFL makeup, especially after he ran 4.64 in Indy. Carter did shine on special teams early in college and could earn a roster spot covering kicks.

Jaguars selected Miami FB Marquez Williams with the No. 240 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

The Jaguars now have a fullback for Leonard Fournette to run behind. Williams is certainly squatty lead blocker at 5-foot-10 and 260-pounds. Williams joined Miami as a graduate transfer in 2016 after playing for Mars Hill University. He attended the NFLPA game, where he showed up 20 pounds lighter from his playing weight of 280.

49ers selected Miami DB Adrian Colbert with the No. 229 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Colbert played safety early in his career with Texas before moving to Miami as a graduate transfer and settling in at cornerback. He logged 22 tackles and one pick in his only season with the Canes while missing time with a torn meniscus and a broken forearm that would eventually end his college career. His Pro Day brought mixed results including a 4.38 forty, a 33-inch vertical, a 9'9" broad jump and just 10 reps on the bench press. The versatile Colbert will begin his career on special teams.

Vikings selected Miami WR Stacy Coley with the No. 219 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Coley (6’0/195) made 31 starts at Miami, tallying a career 166-2,128-20 (13.4 YPR) receiving line with two return scores. He was only selected third-team All-ACC as a senior. While Coley had a largely successful Hurricanes career – his 166 catches are second most in school history – Coley’s character and passion for the game were questioned by scouts, and he wasn’t a dominant collegiate. A middling athlete, Coley looks like a low-floor prospect in the Markus Wheaton mold.
Apr 29 - 5:40 PM

Lions selected Miami QB Brad Kaaya with the No. 215 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Kaaya (6’4/214) turned pro as a true junior after making 38 starts at Miami, compiling a 19-19 career record with a pedestrian 60.6% completion rate, 8.15 YPA, and 69:24 TD-to-INT ratio. A timing-and-rhythm passer who played in a pro-style offense at Miami, Kaaya’s tape reveals sub-par arm strength and ball location. Kaaya also showed a tendency to panic under duress, persistently falling into back-foot throws. A mechanical pocket passer lacking standout physical traits, Kaaya’s plus smarts (34 Wonderlic score), football IQ, and intangibles are his calling cards. He’s an NFL backup.
Apr 29 - 5:38 PM

Saints selected Miami (FL) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad with the No. 196 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Muhammad (6'3/253) dealt with myriad off-field trouble at Miami, serving several suspensions that prevented him from playing two of the past three years, including in 2016. In 2015, he did pile up a team-high 8.5 tackles for loss to go with five sacks. Muhammad tested as an unimpressive athlete in Indy, running 4.88 with a 30 1/2-inch vertical. He's a long shot on many levels.
