Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Charleston Rambo is ranked as the third best transfer in the latest Rivals.Com rankings. Rambo is the second highest-ranked offensive player and top WR ranked by Rivals. Alabama linebacker Henry To’o To’o is the top-ranked transfer and ironically Oklahoma running Eric Gray is second.

T’oo T’oo and Gray both transferred from Tennessee. Rambo will line up across from To’o T’oo when the Hurricanes and Crimson Tide open the season on September 4 in Atlanta. Miami cornerback Tyrique Stevenson is ranked the 32nd best transfer and edge rusher DeAndre Johnson is 69th.

Rambo will provide Miami with a deep threat in the passing game. In three seasons with Oklahoma, Rambo had 76 receptions for 1,180 yards and nine touchdowns. After a breakout sophomore season in 2019, Rambo’s production regressed in 2020. Miami needs a return to the 2019 numbers Rambo had.

Rivals expects Rambo to the the best WR Miami has had “in a bit” in their words. Mike Harley returns for his fifth Miami Hurricanes season. Harley was sensational last season with 57 receptions for 799 yards and seven touchdowns.Harley had 40 receptions for 625 yards and six TDs in the last six games of 2020.

"“Rambo will be the best receiving target for the Hurricanes in a bit and showed signs of potential stardom at Oklahoma.”"

Johnson was a critical addition to the Miami defense that lost edge rushers Jaelan Phillips and Quincy Roche after the 2020 season. Johnson had 58 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, 10.0 sacks, one pass breakup and five forced fumbles in four seasons with Tennessee. In 2020, Johnson had 28 tackles, six sacks and 4.5 TFLs.

It was surprising that Stevenson was not ranked higher than 32nd on Rivals list. Miami expects Rivals to be their shutdown CB. In two seasons with Georgia, Stevenson recorded 47 tackles, 2.0 TFLs, 1.0 sacks and 10 pass breakups. At the least Stevenson has a chance to eclipse the pass breakups in 2021.
