Miami Hurricanes Seniors Malik Rosier and Safety Jaquan Johnson should be two of the biggest leaders on the 2018 team. Both players discussed how the first day of Spring Practice went.

Rosier had an up and down 2017 season. He led the Miami Hurricanes to their best season in 14 years but was erratic at times. Rosier really struggled in the final three games of the season. Many expect the incumbent quarterback to be pushed by redshirt Freshman N’Kosi Perry and Freshman Jarren Williams.

Johnson returns after being named the team’s MVP in 2017. He will be joined at safety by Sheldrick Redwine, but they will be next to an inexperienced group of cornerbacks.

The Miami Hurricanes return rising Senior Michael Jackson at one corner, but the rest of the cornerbacks are largely inexperienced.  Miami does have rising Senior Jhavonte Dean, but he did not get a lot of playing time as a Junior College Transfer. Rising Sophomore Trajan Bandy and a strong incoming group of Freshmen will be worth watching this spring and summer.

The first day of spring practice gave the Freshmen a chance to see how things are done at Miami and to get in better condition. Head Coach Mark Richt said that they will be testing the quarterbacks mental and physical abilities as well as their decision-making process this spring.

Rosier spoke to the media about how it felt to get back on the field after nearly three months off.
