The Miami football program has the ninth-ranked transfer class according to 247Sports.Com. In basketball, Miami has the third-ranked transfer class. The recent additions of defensive tackle Darrell Jackson from Maryland and former UCLA linebacker Caleb Johnson have moved the Miami class into the top 10.
