Romello Brinson, Jacolby George and Brashard Smith are special talents who will always be linked as four-star wide receivers and signees in the Class of 2021 who should all make impacts in the Miami Hurricanes offense during their collegiate tenure. Head coach Manny Diaz called Brinson a special talent.

When Brinson, George and Smith enroll later this year, the Miami Hurricanes football roster will have 12 WRs on it. Miami returns starters Mike Harley, Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins for the 2021 season and added Oklahoma transfer, Charleston Rambo. Harley and Rambo are almost definitely starters for Miami at WR in 2021.

Pope, freshman Keyshawn Smith and Wiggins will compete to the third starter for the Miami Hurricanes. Brinson is a special talent, but he would have to have an exceptional summer and training camp to earn the third spot as a starting WR. Harley and probably Rambo will move on after the 2021 season.

Brinson will be among the Miami WRs favored to become a starter in 2022. Diaz praises Brinson for being the big play WRs the Hurricanes need in their offense. Rambo is expected to be the big play WR Miami often lacked in 2020. With Rambo expected to leave following the 2021 season, Brinson can take that mantle in the future.

"“Romello is a special talent…A guy who can threaten a defense, can blow the top off a coverage, and when you’ve got that type of speed and playmaking ability down the field, it just changes everything…You see him splitting the safeties right down the middle of the field and then can make the contested catch.When you want to be an up-tempo offense, you’ve got to have the abilities to make the big plays down the field, and Melo is a guy that can do that…Week in, week out, no matter what the opposition was, [Brinson was productive].He catches the ball away from his body, great strides, great speed, and he’s what Miami should have. a wide receiver that defenses are always worried about him going deep.”Courtesy Miami Herald"

Also a track athlete, Brinson will provide Miami will elite downfield and playmaking ability. As a junior in 2019, Brinson had 43 receptions for 834 yards receiving and eight touchdowns. At 6’2,180 pounds, Brinson also has the length Diaz frequently talks about throughout the Miami roster.

It is his length that helps him on contested catches be able to make plays down the field. Brinson will likely spend the 2021 season learning the system of offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee before beginning to make an impact for the Hurricanes. Miami needs Brinson to become an impact player.
