"“That’s why they were recruited here. Let’s see what they can do. Coach Richt and coach Dugans and I have talked about getting the one-on-ones back to what one-on-ones should be on the Greentree Practice Field… With the wide receivers we’ve got and the DBs we’ve got and their type of mentality, where you really have that iron-sharpens-iron practice mentality, I think that could be the most telling thing in our football team a year from now, the personality and depth we added at both spots.”"

In addition to the talent returning, Miami brings in an exceptionally talented and deep receiving core in the Storm ’18 class. Four-star receivers Marquez Ezzard, Mark Pope and Brian Hightower and three-star receiver Daquris Wiggins should challenge the returnees for playing time.

Hightower and Wiggins were among the early enrollees last month. They both have work do after some of their initial practices according to Dugans.

"“They went through their first day of mat drills and it wasn’t pretty. Not for those guys,” Dugans said with a laugh of Hightower and Wiggins. “But I was impressed with what I saw the first day. They didn’t quit, they didn’t give in, they competed. That’s what I wanted to see, some resiliency out of the guys when they faced adversity, when they got tired. So that was promising.”"
