The Miami Hurricanes signed the 11th ranked Class in 2021. Wide receiver Romello Brinson was the fourth-highest ranked 2021 Miami signee and second-best on offense behind quarterback Jake Garcia. Brinson was named by Riley Gates of 247 Sports as “ACC football: Predicting 10 future stars.”

Miami freshmen WRs Brinson, Jacolby George and Breshard Smith are all freshmen pushing for playing time in 2021. The three amigos have been impressive in training camp. Brinson had four receptions in the first Miami scrimmage this month and 130 yards in the first two scrimmages. Brinson also brings added size.

At 6’2, 180 pounds, Brinson will provide Miami with needed length outside and the ability to win 50/50 balls. With Brinson, George and Smith Miami will have a deep WR corps for at least the next three seasons. Mike Harley and Charleston Rambo are likely to be joined as the starting Miami WRs with Key’Shawn Smith.

Brinson was praised as a playmaker and blocker by Miami WRs coach Rob Likens. The decision to stay home and help Miami return to greatness could contribute to Brinson rising as a star in the ACC. With Likens as the WR coach Brinson and the entire receiving corps will have opportunities to develop and contribute to Miami.

"ROMELLO BRINSON, WR, MIAMIMiami wide receiver Romello BrinsonA top-25 wide receiver in the 2021 recruiting class, Brinson was wanted by multiple powerhouse programs in the recruiting process but chose to play for the Hurricanes.Brinson’s speed in high school was helpful for not just football, where, during his junior season, Brinson had over 800 receiving yards, but it also…in track & field. If Miami has the right man under center in the future, Brinson could become the go-to receiver, as the 6-foot-2, four-star has size on a lot of his other opponents.The No. 0 jersey does not hurt Brinson’s chances to stand out, either."

Brinson was the 144th ranked player, 25th ranked WR and 22nd in Florida in the Class of 2021. The future for the Miami Hurricanes is bright at QB after D’Eriq King finishes his eligibility, Tyler Van Dyke will enter his third year in the program in 2022 and Jake Garcia his second. The Hurricanes will have the right man under center.

Brinson was part of a separate group of three amigos. Kahlil Brantley, Brinson and Kamren Kinchens all signed with Miami in 2021 from legendary Miami Northwestern High School. Northwestern has been a Hurricanes pipeline for well over a decade. Brinson is challenging to be part of the 2021 rotation.
