Michel is listed as a 5-star running back by 247Sports and ranks as the No. 1 running back in Florida on the 247Composite.  He was in attendance at Miami’s junior day on Feb. 9 and has become a top priority for the Canes’.

Michel is a quick, elusive back who isn’t afraid to lower his shoulder if need be.  He possesses good vision and is tough to bring down.  Michel can cut back on the drop of a dime and if when he gets into open space, game over.
