Three-star 2022 wide receiver Jayden Gibson announced via Twitter on Friday morning that he will be taking an official visit to the Miami football program June 10-13 if the dead period is lifted by the NCAA. The announcement of the visit by Gibson comes after Miami received a commitment from four-star QB Jacurri Brown Friday.

Gibson has exceptional size at 6’6, 185 pounds and is the 606th ranked player, 77th ranked WR and 83rd ranked player in Florida according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. Brown and four-star defensive tackle Brandon Cleveland from Tampa Sandalwood are the only commits Miami has in the Class of 2022.

The Hurricanes have the 35th ranked class with just the two commits. Miami is the highest-ranked class with two players committed for 2022. There are currently three crystal balls for Gibson on 247 Sports with one projecting that he will commit to Miami. Baylor and Tennessee are projected as the other strong schools for Gibson.

Gibson plays for West Orange High School in Winter Haven, Florida which is a suburb of Orlando. In 2020, Gibson had 32 receptions for 774 yards, averaging an impressive 24.2 yards per receptions with nine touchdowns. Gibson also played basketball for West Orange. Brown’s commitment could spur other recruits.

Mike Harley is the only WR on the Miami football roster in his last year of eligibility. All of the other WRs on the Hurricanes roster have at least two years of eligibility remaining. The NCAA froze eligibility for all athletes during the 2020-21 school year. Multiple Miami WRs have the opinion of entering the 2022 NFL Draft.
