The Miami football addition of Oklahoma transfer wide receiver Charleston Rambo was praised by 247 Sports earlier this week as part of an article that looked at the Transfer Portal: This week’s top commitments and notable entries.” The commitment by Rambo to Miami was one of the most notable this week.

Miami is also expected to eventually add defensive back Tyrique Stevenson from Georgia, who entered the transfer portal earlier this week. Stevenson was a four-star signee with Georgia out of Miami Southridge in 2019. Stevenson chose the Bulldogs over the Hurricanes partially because Manny Diaz left for Temple.

Diaz returned after an 18-day stint with the Owls to ascend to head coach with Miami from defensive coordinator. If former Miami head coach Mark Richt chose to resign before National Signing Day and Diaz had been promoted, there are some analysts who feel like Stevenson would have signed with the Hurricanes.

Rambo had 76 receptions for 1,180 receiving yards and three TDs. The addition of Rambo to the Miami football roster in 2021 gives the Hurricanes another reliable receiver to go with Mike Harley this fall. Juniors Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins who were both starters in 2020 will compete to be the third starter in 2021.

"Charleston Rambo, WR, Miami: Miami’s offense was a standout receiver away from being truly explosive in 2020. Rambo, who averaged 15.5 yards per catch in his Oklahoma career, helps solve that issue. He provides a needed complement for Mike Harley on the outside, giving D’Eriq King a reliable second option.Harley was the only Miami receiver last season with more than five targets per game and better than a 60 PFF grade."

In 2019, Rambo was the explosive WR needs. As a sophomore for Oklahoma, Rambo had 43 receptions for 743 receiving yards, 17.3 yards per reception and five TDs. Rambo had all three of his career 100 yards games in the first four games of the Sooners 2019 season. One against King and Houston.

Led by King, Harley and departed tight end Brevin Jordan, Miami improved from 52nd in passing offense in 2019 to 29th in 2020. Will Mallory should be ready for a breakout season in 2021 with Jordan moving on to the NFL after both signed with Miami in 2018. Rambo adds another element to the Miami offense in 2021.
