The Miami Hurricanes football staff will attempt to pitch 5-star tight end Nyckoles Harbor with the traditional National Signing Day a week away. Miami will have a difficult sell without Harbor ever visiting camps per his On3 profile. Harbor is an exceptional athlete with Olympic-level talent as a sprinter.

Harbor has been recorded running a 10.3 100 meters. Homestate Maryland and Oregon are the frontrunners to sign Harbor. Oregon has an exceptional track team and hosted the IAAF World Championships last summer. Harbor is also extremely intelligent with plans to major in pre-medicine or in engineering.

Alex Donno of AllHurricanes.Com and the LockedOnCanes Podcast refuted a report from nationally renowned college football expert Mike Farrell on Tuesday that there is a size-able (sic) rift between the coaches at Chaminade-Madonna and Miami.” Miami is trending for five-stat Chaminade Madonna receiver JoJo Trader.

On3 projects Miami with a 66.7 percent chance for a commitment from Trader. Miami was trending at 50.7 percent earlier this week. Steve Wiltfong the National Director of Recruiting for 247 Sports logged a crystal ball in favor of Miami for Trader over the weekend. This is a recruitment to follow.

The Miami women’s basketball team has been off since North Carolina State ended the Hurricanes’ five-game winning streak last Thursday. Miami is 12-7 overall and 5-3 tied for sixth in the ACC. Boston College is 13-9 overall and 3-6 in the ACC tied for 11th. This is a game Miami needs to win and is favored at home.

The Miami men’s basketball team ended a nine-game losing streak versus Florida State on Tuesday night 86-63 in Tallahassee. Miami plays the last of three straight road games on Saturday at Pittsburgh. The Miami Hurricanes moved up from 46th to 37th in the NCAA Net Ratings following the wins versus the Seminoles.
