The 2022 Miami football signing class has moved from the 48th to 36th ranked class with the commitment of four-star defensive end Cyrus Moss from Las Vegas. Miami has received commitments from or signed its top three players since Mario Cristobal was hired as head coach.

Miami lost out on four-star wide receiver Kevin Coleman who chose Jackson State after the Hurricanes were favored to sign him. Coleman becomes the second elite player to sign with the Tigers after cornerback Travis Hunter. Moss chose Miami over Arizona State, Oregon and USC. Oregon was the original leader for Moss.

Moss began trending to Miami over the last few days after USC was thought to be the leader for nearly a month. Miami continues to pipeline to Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas. Miami alums, quarterback Tate Martell, safety Bubba Bolden and tight end Brevin Jordan are recent former Gaels to play for Miami.

Bolden and Jordan played a role in the recruitment of Moss by pushing the Hurricanes openly on social media and tagging Moss. Moss is the 63rd ranked player, sixth rated edge rusher and second in Nevada in the Class of 2022. Moss will team with four-star DE Nyjalik Kelly who signed with Miami last month.

Losing out on Coleman leaves four-star Isaiah Horton as the only WR in the 2022 Class. Horton signed with Miami during the National Early Signing Period in December. Miami gains excellent size at WR with Horton 6’3 190 pounds. Cristobal has made an immediate impact in recruiting for the Miami football program.

The Hurricanes class has moved from the seventies prior to the Early National Signing Period, to 48 prior to today and now 35th. Miami should continue to move by National Signing Day. Despite the loss of Coleman, the commitment from Moss was huge for Cristobal and Miami. Miami could look to the transfer portal to add a WR.
