Dallas showed his versatility by running out of the Wildcat and in a more traditional offense. He finished the season with 217 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He is likely going to stay at running back. Dallas will likely line up a variety of different positions in 2018.

Mike Harley was another highly touted Freshman in the Miami 2017 class. Harley was unable to make much of an impact. He caught nine passes for 91 yards without a touchdown.

Lawrence Cager and Darrell Langham came up with some big catches during the season but were unable to perform with a lot of consistency. Both provide Miami with big targets in the passing game.

Cager finished 2017 with 16 receptions for 237 yards and three touchdowns. Langham had Miami’s two biggest receptions of the season.

He caught the game-winning touchdown with six seconds remaining against Florida State. Langham then followed that up with a key catch on fourth and 11 to keep the game-winning drive alive against Georgia Tech.

The rising Senior finished the season with 11 receptions for 209 yards and two touchdowns. No one has ever made the most of their receptions like Langham did this season. Both he and Cager are going to have to become more productive in 2018 if they want to continue to get on the field.
