With the Miami football 2023 recruiting class trending for three prospects and awaiting the announcement of a fourth, they will vault into the top 10 nationally in the next few weeks. Five-star edge rusher Jayden Wayne, four-star safety Jayden Bonsu and three-star offensive tackle Tommy Kinsler are trending to Miami.

Five-star OT Francis Mauigoa will announce his commitment on Monday. Mauigoa has kept his recruitment tight. Tennessee is trending per the On3 prediction machine. No 247 Sports crystal balls have been logged for Mauigoa ahead of his Monday commitment. Miami would move into the top 10 with the other three prospects.

Bonsu, Kinsler and Wayne all began to trend to Miami over the weekend. Five of the six crystal balls for Wayne to Miami have been logged in the last week. Three 247 Sports national experts are among those logging crystal balls for Wayne. Wayne could become the first 2023 five-star commit for Miami.

Bonsu who was initially trending to Ohio State has picked up four crystal balls projecting him to Miami over the weekend. Bonsu would be the first safety committed to Miami for 2023. Miami is loaded at safety entering the 2022 season. Bonsu will make his commitment announcement on July 20.

Kinsler who de-committed from Florida on Saturday has had all five of his crystal balls projecting to Miami since then. Kinsler would be the second OT committed to Miami for 2023. Three-star OT Frankie Tinilau committed to Miami in April. Mario Cristobal has emphasized the line of scrimmage since being hired in December.

The 2023 Miami recruiting class was 14th nationally with 195.48 points entering Monday. Commitments from Bonsu, Kinsler and Wayne would provide Miami with 229.91 recruiting points. That would vault Miami into sixth ahead of Georgia who currently has 222.66 points behind Penn State who has 235.94.

Next. Miami winning recruiting battles versus elite programs. dark

During his four seasons at Oregon, Cristobal and the Ducks had an average recruiting class of 10.5 nationally. That averaging ranking should be a minimum standard at Miami with the potential to rank higher. The next month should continue to be full of commitments for the 2023 recruiting class to the Miami football program.
