After performing well at the Jacksonville Showcase this weekend, the Florida and Miami football programs appear to be in a recruiting battle for four-star Valdosta quarterback Jacurri Brown.

Without a quarterback commited to its 2021 recruiting class, the Miami football program is also looking ahead for a signal-caller in its 2022 class. Miami has offered six pro-style QBs and four dual-threat QBs in the Class of 2022. Four-star dual-threat QB Jacurri Brown is highly interested in Miami.

Brown is the 159th ranked player, the fifth-ranked dual-threat QB and 14th ranked player in Georgia according to 247Sports. Florida is in the lead for Brown right now, but he told 247Sports in Jacksonville this weekend he will likely make a decision on where he will attend college near the start of his senior season in August 2021.

Brown has offers from nearly 20 schools with all but five from Power Five programs. Andrew Ivins of 247Sports reported that Brown told him he has had virtual meetings with the offensive staffs for the Florida and Miami football programs recently. Auburn, Missouri. Ohio State and UCLA are also in the picture.

What Miami needs to do to secure QBs in 2021 and 2022

A lot with Miami recruiting offensive players in the 2021, 2022 and classes beyond will depend on the performance of the Hurricanes offense in their first year under Rhett Lashlee and the up-tempo spread offense. The Miami offense was inconsistent at best in 2019 and will have to show significant improvement.

Lashlee and his staff have done a good job getting commitments from four-star wide receivers Romello Brinson and Jacolby George and four-star running back Thad Franklin. Whichever QBs signs with Miami in the next two classes will have significant talent to work with. Now the Hurricanes have to prove it on the field.

Brown told Lake “It will come down to the relationships I have with the coaches, how the team uses its quarterback, and who I would be coming in with in the recruiting class.”  Miami does not have any 2022 players commited yet. How D’Eriq King develops in the Lashlee offense will be watched by all Miami recruits.
