The wide receivers the Miami Hurricanes football program signed in the Class of 2021 have been impressive early in training camp. Jacolby George and Romello Brinson showcased the traits that made them coveted by Miami. Blake Brockermeyer of 247 Sports highlighted the two 2021 blue chip signees earlier this week.

Brinson and George were part of Brockermeyer’s article “Fall camp report: Immense hype for USC freshman QB, other big national notes (8/11).” published on Wednesday. Breshard Smith with Brinson and George gave Miami three four-star WR signees in the Class of 2021. Miami has not received consistent WR play in recent seasons.

Mike Harley turned into a go-to WR in his fourth season for quarterback D’Eriq King in 2021. Other blue-chip WRs on the Miami Hurricanes roster. Mark Pope who is entering his fourth season in 2020, have not played with the consistency Miami needs. Miami added Oklahoma transfer, Charleston Rambo, during the offseason.

Rambo is expected to provide a consistent deep threat Miami lacked in 2020. If veterans like Pope and Dee Wiggins plus the 2020 signees are not capable playmakers in 2021, Brinson, George and Smith will have a chance to break through the Miami WR rotation. Brockermeyer highlighted Brinson and George’s skills.

"“WR Jacolby George has looked really smooth early on and catches the ball with his hands really well. Pushing for early playing time. George was the No. 175 prospect in 2021. WR Romello Brinson has the size 6’2 185, and blazing speed that have the coaches excited about his potential. Brinson was the No. 144 recruit 2021”"

Brinson was the 25th ranked WR in the Class of 2021 and the fourth-ranked Miami signee. George was the 29th ranked WR and fifth in the Miami class and Smith was 36th and eighth. The 2021 Miami class was 11th overall. The three amigos at WR helped contribute to Miami’s 14 blue chip signees out of 22 in the Class of 2021.

Brinson is the most likely of the three freshmen WRs to contribute for Miami on offense in 2021. Brinson has the length and playmaking ability on the outside the Miami coaching staff covets. Smith was an adept all-around player in high school and could provide Miami with a game-breaking return man Miami lacked recently.
