The Miami football program gained their second commitment from a visitor this weekend with a pledge from three-star wide receiver Landon Ibieta on Sunday. Ibieta is the second WR Miami has added in the Class of 2022 after fellow three-star Quan Lee committed to the Hurricanes earlier this spring.

Ibieta took his official visit to Coral Gables this weekend. Four-star cornerback Khamauri Rogers committed to Miami on Saturday in the middle of his official visit. Following Rogers’ commitment, Miami moved from 69th to 52nd in the 2022 Class rankings. The Hurricanes moved up four more spots with the commitment from Ibieta.

Ibieta is projected as a better prospect by the Miami football staff than his rankings indicate. The Mandeville, Louisiana star is the 763rd ranked overall, 99th ranked WR and 33rd player in his state in 2022. Ibieta has risen with his performances through the seven-on-seven events this summer.

Ibieta chose Miami over 11 other schools. Kansas, Mississippi State, Virginia and Wisconsin are the other Power Five programs that have offered Ibieta. Miami could lose as many as five WRs after the 2021 season. The Hurricanes have signed seven WRs in the last two classes. Miami could try to sign three to four WRs.

Ibieta and Rogers were two of 10 players the Miami football program hosted this weekend. Ibieta was the only WR who visited this weekend. Brown and Lee visited last weekend. Three-star Nick Cull who is Miami is the predicted leader to receive a commitment from was the other CB who visited this weekend in addition to Rogers.

Miami likely to receive more commits from blue chip CBs. dark. Next

Miami has no WR scheduled to visit next weekend before a dead period begins July 1. The Hurricanes have had four-star WRs Jayden Gibson, Isaiah Bond and Isaiah Horton already take their official visits to Coral Gables earlier this month. Bond is already committed to Florida. Miami doesn’t lead for any of the above WRs.
