Georgia Jaheim Singletary cornerback Jaheim Singletary who entered the transfer portal on Friday was signed with the Bulldogs by current Miami defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae. Singletary was the 27th prospect, fifth CB and fifth in Florida in the Class of 2022. Singletary visited the Miami football program in July 2021.

The Georgia website credits Singletary playing versus Samford, South Carolina and in the national championship against TCU. Singletary leaves Georgia after not being able to make the two-deep depth chart. The Miami football program would add excellent length with Singletary who is listed at 6’1, 175 pounds by Georgia.

At Jacksonville Riverside High School Singletary recorded 96 tackles, three tackles for loss, 14 interceptions, 27 passes defended and two fumble recoveries in four years while contributiing on offense and special teams. Almost every Power Five program recruited Singletary out of high school.

Andrew Ivins of 247 Sports praised Singletary in his scouting report as “a larget corner that can essentially take away one side of the field…(who) does a nice job of anticipating throws and timing his breaks…but has what it takes to emerge as a potential CB1 type for a Top 25 program given long arms and instincts.”

Miami lost eight DBs following the the 2022 season. That included top CB Tyrique Stevenson who transfered to Miami from Georgia during the 2021 offseason. Singletary only took official visits to Georgia and Ohio State out of high school. Florida and Oregon were the other schools with Miami to receive unofficial visits from Singletary.

Florida, Miami, Ohio State and Oregon could be programs to watch in the transfer portal for Singletary. Gary Ferman of CaneSport reported on Friday that Miami has very quickly risen to the top of the target list for Singletary. Singletary was a consensus five-star recruit in the class of 2022.

Miami signed CBs Damari Brown and Robert Stafford plus Antione Jackson who can play CB or safety in the 2023 class. Five-star CB Cormani McClain who is commited to Miami but has not signed will announce his college choice on Sunday. McClain cannot sign a National Letter of Intent until February 1.
