The Miami football program received their second visit from high-end four-star 2023 wide receiver Jalen Brown for Paradise Camp on Saturday. Brown is the 44th ranked player, seventh-ranked WR and 10th in Florida in the Class of 2023. Entering his junior year of high school, Brown is not allowed to take official visits until August 1.

Brown has been busy in the last month with visits to eight programs, including the three to Miami. Wide receiver could be a key position for the Miami football program in the Class of 2023. Miami signed three WRs in 2021 who are the only players at the position currently on the roster who are not eligible for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Out of Gulliver Prep, Brown is another elite local player that would be a huge boost to the Miami football program. Hurricanes head coach Manny Diaz has made it a point of wanting to restore the State of Miami keeping players in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties at the U. Brown has a list of about 30 schools of interest.

In 16 games in two seasons with Gulliver, Brown has 33 receptions for 962 yards and 11 touchdowns, 446 yards in kickoff returns with a 24.8 average and three TDs. The versatility Brown will bring to his college team will be useful at the next level. Brown has a lot of competition at Paradise Camp.

Five-star Brandon Inniss from American Heritage is the top player at the position for 2023. Inniss has two crystal balls projecting him to Oklahoma including one logged on Friday. If Miami is going to build toward returning to the elite of college football the Hurricanes have to add elite blue-chip talent on offense.

Next. Miami should look into Oregon transfer LB Isaac Slade-Matautia. dark

Miami signed five-star defensive players, tackle Leonard Taylor and safety James Williams for 2021. Running back Lorenzo Lingard who is now at Florida was the last five-star offensive player Miami signed, in 2018. Brown and Inniss will continue to be top targets for Miami in 2023, no matter who they sign in 2022.
