The Miami football program has offered seven pro-style QBs in the class of 2022 and four dual-threat signal-callers. Of those 11, three are listed as warm or strongly considering Miami. Four-star

Jacurri Brown

, from Valdosta Lowndes High School, was a teammate of Miami 2022 signee, edge rusher Thomas Davis.

A.J. Duffy from IMG Academy in Bradenton is another four-star who is strongly considering Miami and three-star Zion Turner of St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale is the third 2022 QB who has the Hurricanes high on his schools of consideration.

Brown currently has two 247 Crystal Balls logged for Florida. The Crystal Balls were logged in December from 247 Sports Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wilfong and on New Year’s Day from Swamp 247, the Florida Site from their analyst Blake Alderman.

Wiltfong gave Brown a confidence score of seven to the Gators. Alderman has only a confidence score of seven. Brown has excellent size at 6’4 and the escapability to be an effective runner.

Brown is likely a long-term project which should fit what Miami is looking for with Garcia or Van Dyke likely poised to become the Hurricanes starter in 2022. Ranked 11th overall at QB in the Class of 2022, 247 profiled Brown.

"Jacurri Brown | QB | Lowndes (Ga.) 247Sports Composite: 4-star | 0.9478 | No. 126 Overall | No. 6 DUAL Recruitment status: Undecided 247Sports Crystal Ball: Florida 100% Measurables: 6-4 | 205 2020 stats: In 12 games as a junior, Brown completed 88 of 184 passes (47.8 pct.) for 1,537 yards with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions while rushing for 1,101 yards and 16 touchdowns on 189 carries. Player evaluation: Intriguing, lean frame with the desired height. An effective runner given long stride and ability to not only evade defenders, but also shed tackles. Has rushed for 100-plus yards multiple times at the high school level. Will cover plenty of ground when forced to leave the pocket, but his understanding of how to sell the read-option seems to create the most problems for defenses. Improving as a passer, but needs to get more accurate and find some touch, especially when working the short to intermediate parts of the field. Has a longer release which allows him to put pace on the ball. Not afraid to take a deep shot. By far one of the more unique quarterbacks in the class of 2022 given skill set and knack for making plays. Has the potential to eventually win games at the Power 5 level, but will likely need some time to develop. Should thrive in an offensive system that embraces dual-threat quarterbacks. – 247Sports Southeast Recruiting Analyst Andrew Ivins NFL Draft projection: 4-7 Round (Day 3) Player comparison: Devin Gardner | QB | Michigan Wolverines"
