The Miami football program is continuing to trend for four-star defensive lineman Rueben Bain after multiple reports emerged this week that he is planning a commitment announcement on December 16. All nine 247 Sports crystal balls project Bain to commit to Miami. There is a 69.5 percent for Bain to Miami per On3.Com.
Bain is the 73rd ranked player, 10th defensive lineman and 16th in Florida in the class of 2023 per the 247 Sports composite rankings. Auburn and Florida State received official visits from Bain in June. With his proximity to Coral Gables Bain has taken nine unofficial visits with the Miami football program.
Miami has commitments from 2023 four-star edge rushers Collins Acheampong and Jayden Wayne and three-star defensive tackle Joshua Horton. The Hurricanes have lost four DL to the transfer portal, three of whom were tackles. Miami also loses senior DL Mitchell Agude and Antonio Moultrie.
Miami has been trending for Bain throughout his commitment. Auburn and Florida State have reportedly been closing late. Florida State is reportedly the biggest obstacle to Miami signing Bain. Bain would be the fourth highest-rate signee in the 2023 Miami class. Wayne is currently the third highest-rated Miami commit.
The 2023 recruiting classes will change frequently with two weeks remaining until the early national signing period commences. If Bain was currently in the 2023 Miami class, the Hurricanes would be fifth nationally. Miami is challenging to finish with a top-five recruiting class. Bain would be a huge commitment.
Five-star offensive tackle Francis Mauigoa is another blue-chip prospect who is trending to Miami. Mario Cristobal and his staff have done an exceptional job retaining the Miami class following a 5-7 season. A commitment from Bain would be a huge addition from a local player in the 2023 Miami class.
