Miami Hurricanes Recruiting: National Signing Day Tracker


National Signing Day is finally here! Today is the day your favorite future Miami Hurricanes sign their National Letter of Intents and become Hurricanes.

We’ll be updating this page throughout as every recruit signs and faxes their National Letter of Intent to the Miami Hurricanes. Welcome back, NSD.


Defensive Lineman Richard McIntosh kicked things off by being the first to sign his National Letter of Intent early Wednesday morning. McIntosh is a freakish athlete that should help the depth on the defensive line from day one.

Offensive Lineman Tyler Gauthier followed McIntosh and became the second Hurricane to sign his NLI. Gauthier will probably find himself in a redshirt year, but the offensive lineman has good skill, and will help tremendously for depth.

Safety Robert Knowles decided to stay in Dade County and play for the hometown Miami Hurricanes by being the third commit to fax his National Letter of Intent. Knowles is extremely physical, and should find himself making some noise early on in his career at Miami. Early grade issues forced him to be committed to FIU, which might’ve been a good thing because it kept his recruitment under the radar. Big get for Miami with Knowles.

New Jersey linebacker Jamie Gordinier became the fourth member of the class for Miami. Gordinier is great on run coverage, and will provide the Canes with much-needed depth at the linebacker position.

Cornerback Michael Jackson (yes, that’s his name) became the fifth player to fax in his National Letter of Intent for the Miami Hurricanes. As of right now, Jackson is the only committed cornerback in this class, and he’s a good one. He’s a tall, physical corner which should help Miami right away.

Defensive Tackle Ryan Fines joined in and became the sixth Miami commit to fax his letter in on Wednesday. Fines was a Cane commit throughout the entire process, and stayed firm with it the entire time. Fines fills a need on the defensive line, and he’ll be welcomed at the U.

From Coast-to-Coast. Offensive lineman Bar Milo joins his former teammate Brad Kaaya, and he’ll try to protect his blindside through his Miami Hurricane career. Milo is a talented lineman that has a mean streak, which is something Miami needs.

Coach Cager made Hurricanes fans fall in love with him, but Lawrence Cager, the player, is also pretty damn good. Lawrence Cager makes it official and signs his National Letter of Intent with the Miami Hurricanes.

Brendan Loftus is in! The three-star offensive lineman stayed committed to the Hurricanes throughout the entire recruiting process, and is part of a nice offensive class for Miami.

Hayden Mahoney is also in for the Hurricanes! The offensive line gets much needed depth with the additions of Jahair Jones, Brendan Loftus, Bar Milo and now Mahoney.

Mark Walton is all Cane! Walton originally was a 2016 recruit, but after reclassifying to the 2015 class, Walton remained with the Hurricanes. Walton is the only running back commit in the 2015 class for the Hurricanes, and he’ll have a chance to play right away, and perhaps start for the Canes down the road next season.

James King was an FAU commit throughout most of the process, but after a late offer by the Hurricanes, King decided to flip his commitment to Miami. The Booker T. Washington linebacker needs to add a lot of size, but he has really good speed and plays aggressive at the position. Miami needs aggressive guys and linebackers, so this is a good get for the Canes late in the game.

Sheldrick Redwine is another prospect that the Canes swooped in late to flip from another school late in the process. Redwine was a Louisville commit but announced his commitment to Miami during Killian high school’s National Signing Day ceremony. Jaquan Johnson gets an assist for this commitment.

There was chatter about Tyree St. Louis possibly flipping from Miami to Florida, but that wasn’t the case. St. Louis faxed in his National Letter of Intent to Miami on Wednesday, and he’s now officially a Cane. St. Louis is the most talented offensive lineman in the 2015 class, at least in my opinion, and he was someone the Hurricanes desperately needed to keep. Glad to see St. Louis sticking.

Kendrick Norton announced that he would become a Miami Hurricane during his ceremony on Wednesday, and this was huge for the Canes. The depth on the defensive line has always been an issue for Miami, and it feels like this was the first defensive tackle battle this staff has won. We’ll see how much immediate impact Norton provides, but it’s huge to get him to come to Coral Gables.
