Jayden Gibson WR  6’5″ 190 

Gibson would provide Miami with the length at WR that Diaz speaks about throughout the Hurricanes roster. Gibson is the 228th ranked player, 36th ranked WR and 25th in Florida per 247. Gibson had 32 receptions for 774 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020 for Winter Garden, West Orange High School.

Miami needs size at WR. None of the Hurricanes’ current WRs are as tall as Gibson at 6’4. Dee Wiggins who can leave after the 2021 season and second-year freshman Michael Redding III are the Hurricanes’ current tallest WRs at 6’3. Miami needs to improve on contested catches and Gibson’s catch radius will help that.

Quan Lee WR 5.6 6’0″ 175 

Lee is a player with a lot of upside that can exceed his rankings as the 653rd best player, 87th WR and 92nd in Florida in 2022. In 24 career games for F.Q. Buchholz High School in Gainesville, Lee has 86 receptions for 1,896 yards and 19 TDs. Lee had 50 receptions for 1,021 yards and 13 TDs.

Lee and Gibson would complement each other well. An 11.11 100 meters that Lee ran in high could help Miami in the deep passing game. Oklahoma transfer Charleston Rambo was brought in for the 2021 season to be the deep threat the Hurricanes need this fall. Rambo will probably move on to the NFL after this season.

Next. Where Miami stands with five-star recruits. dark

Kaden Helms TE 5.7 6’6″ 220 

Helms will be a difficult get for the Miami football program. All four of the crystal balls on 247 project Helms to Oklahoma. Miami is likely to lose Will Mallory following the 2021 season. Elijah Arroyo, a 2021 signee is the likely heir apparent to Mallory with Khalil Brantley and Dominick Mammarelli as the primary backups.
