The Miami football program has outlasted several prominent schools as a finalist for four-star cornerback Khamauri Rogers. Miami was one of the six finalists named by Rogers on Saturday. The four schools Rogers eliminated were prominent programs Georgia, LSU and Oklahoma as well as Central Florida.

Miami is a finalist for the nation’s 65th ranked player nationally, the seventh-best CB and top-ranked player in Mississippi. The Hurricanes are joined by Mississippi, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Texas A&M to land a commitment from the elite CB. Rogers is not expected to commit until Early National Signing Day.

The only commit Miami has in their 2022 class is four-star quarterback Jacurri Brown from Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia. The Hurricanes hold one of the seven crystal balls for Rogers on 247Sports.Com. Mississippi holds four and LSU the other two. Miami holds one crystal ball from the Mississippi State writer.

Four other four-star CBs are also strongly considering Miami in the Class of 2022. Trequon Fegans lists Georgia, Miami and South Carolina as his leaders according to 247. Earl Little is a Miami legacy whose list is strongly considering by Alabama, Florida, the Hurricanes and LSU. Trevell Mullen has five leading schools.

The Miami football program could lose as many as four CBs after the 2021 season. Al Blades Jr., Te’Cory Couch, D.J. Ivey and Tyrique Stevenson are all eligible for the 2022 NFL Draft. Behind those four the Hurricanes have second-year freshmen Marcus Clarke and Isaiah Dunson. Miami needs to add CBs in the 2022 class.

The uncertainty of who will return in 2022 makes the depth for the Hurricanes unknown at CB in the future. Adding high-level CBs in the Class of 2020 will help alleviate any losses Miami has at the position following the 2021 season. Manny Diaz and his staff have clearly made CB a priority for 2022.
