Miami brings in three potential stars in the Storm ’18 Class at wide receiver. Mark Pope, Brian Hightower and Daquris Wiggins could all see playing time this fall. Hightower and Wiggins have enrolled in school already, while Pope signed a letter of intent during the early signing period last month.

Pope and Hightower are four-star recruits, while Wiggins is a three-star whom many think is a sleeper. Pope is one of the highest ranked players at wide receiver in the Class of 2018.

He is the nations 64th ranked player overall, 10th best wide receiver 12th ranked player in Florida. Hightower is 156, 28 and 26 and Wiggins 454th and 78th at both wide receiver and in Florida.

There is too much talent for Miami not to get a lot of production from there receiver core. In 2017 it was mostly Berrios. Richards injuries certainly hampered him. If he struggles with injuries again in 2018 there are plenty of talented wide receivers to step up. Miami needs someone to do that.
