With the majority of 2022 participants in Paradise Camp this weekend three-star prospects a bigger impact could be on underclassmen Miami football recruits. Five-star defensive lineman Shermar Stewart will be in Coral Gables for Paradise Camp and four four-star players are taking their official visits this weekend.

Eight 2022 prospects who are Paradise Camp participants were listed by David Wilson in the Miami Herald on Friday. The stars at Paradise Camp could be the underclassmen attending. As many 11 blue-chip Miami football prospects from the Class of 2023 will participate in Paradise Camp per Wilson.

Miami currently has four 2022 commits and one in the Class of 2023. None of the 2022 commits will be in Coral Gables this weekend. Three-star wide receiver Lamar Seymore, the lone 2023 commit will participate in Paradise Camp. Seymore is the brother of 2021 signee, four-star offensive lineman Laurence Seymore.

Paradise Camp can set a foundation for the players entering their junior season and younger. The 2023 classes and younger will begin to command more attention with 2022 Early National Signing Day less than six months away. Miami is one of 11 programs to have a commit in the Class of 2023.

Five-star DL Jayden White from Tacoma, Washington Lincoln is the top underclassman participating in Paradise Camp this weekend per Wilson. White is the 13th ranked player, fourth-ranked DL and first in Washington for 2023. White already has 33 scholarship offers according to his 247 Sports Profile.

Miami is attempting to build an elite defensive line. The signing of five-star DT Leonard Taylor in 2021 with the potential to add Stewart and White would be menacing for the DL of Miami opponents. The Hurricanes signed other blue-chip DL in 2021 and are strongly recruiting several in the Class of 2022.

Next. Miami will have six official Paradise Camp visitors. dark

Paradise Camp will take on a different form this year without as many blue-chip prospects and with it being the first one in two years. Paradise Camp was not held in 2020 because of COVID. Stewart will be making his fourth visit to the Coral Gables campus in June. Getting Stewart on campus should be a good sign.
