The Miami Hurricanes face the possibility of four cornerbacks leaving for the 2022 NFL Draft. Signing CBs in the Class of 2022 is critical for Miami. Al Blades Jr., Te’Cory Couch, D.J. Ivey and Tyrique Stevenson are all eligible for the 2022 NFL Draft. Any or all of them could depart after the 2021 season.

Second-year CBs Marcus Clarke and Isaiah Dunson and 2021 signee Malik Curtis are the only players Miami has at the position who are not eligible for the 2022 NFL Draft. Miami has offered 28 CBs in the Class of 2022 with six listed as warm on 247 Sports. Two of those six CBs strongly considering Miami are from South Florida.

The highest-rated among the 2022 Miami targets at CB and seemingly at the top of the Hurricanes list at the position is Khaumari Rogers. Rogers is the 66th rank player, eighth-ranked CB and second-ranked player in the state out of Lexington, Mississippi. Miami is one of five schools Rogers is strongly considering.

Mississippi, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M are all listed as warm for Rogers. Rogers will visit Miami on June 18 and Tennessee on June 25. Four crystal balls project Rogers to commit to Mississippi, two to LSU and one to Miami. At 6’1 Rogers provides the Miami Hurricanes with length but has to add to his 168 pounds.

Trequon Fegans is the 75th ranked player, ninth-ranked CB and fourth-ranked player in Alabama. Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina are the other players Fagans is strongly considering in addition to Miami. Visits to Miami on June 4 and South Carolina on June 18 are upcoming for the four-star CB.

Four-star CB Trevell Mullen is the third brother to come out of Pompano Beach Coconut Creek. Mullen is the 171st ranked player, 20th ranked CB and 19th ranked player in Florida in the Class of 2022. Indiana, where his brother Tiawan plays, Penn State, Syracuse and West Virginia are the other programs listed as warm for Mullen.

Mullen is expected to attend the Miami Hurricanes cookout on June 1 and visit Indiana on June 18. At 5’11, 150 pounds, Mullen would have to get in the Miami strength and conditioning program to add muscle. The one crystal ball currently projects Mullen to commit to Miami.

Four-star Jacolby Spells is the 240th ranked player, 27th ranked CB and 27th ranked player in Florida. Spells has a similar group of programs he is strongly considering in Indiana, Syracuse and West Virginia in addition to Miami. Visits to the Hoosiers, Hurricanes, Orange and Mountaineers are all lined up for Spells in June.

James Monds III from Fort Pierce Westwood is the 810th ranked player, 79th ranked CB, 115th ranked player in Florida. In addition to Miami, Monds III is considering Indiana, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Visits to Indiana, Nebraska and Wisconsin await Monds III in June.

Monds has one crystal ball projected to Michigan State and one to Nebraska. The confidence score is slightly higher towards the Spartans. Nick Cull from Seminole County High School in Donalsonville, Georgia is only ranked by 247, not the composite as the 44th ranked CB and 46th player in Georgia.

Next. Miami aiming big with 2022 safeties. dark

Alabama, Auburn, Florida State and Mississippi are all high on Cull’s list. Cull does not currently have any visits scheduled via his 247 Sports profile. Miami could be waiting to see how the class plays out with other CBs before Cull would have a place in their recruiting class. Adding CBs will be a priority for Miami in 2022.
