The Miami Hurricanes football program earned its first non-special teams commitment in the 2024 class from three-star quarterback Judd Anderson on Friday. The Miami baseball team was crushed 14-2 at Virginia in a game delayed by rain on Friday night. Spring practice resumes for the football team on Saturday.
Gaby Urrutia of Inside the U reported that Anderson believes Miami is on the rise and that led to him wanting to be a part of the program. Anderson is the first commitment for new Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson. The offense under Dawson was another attractive element for Anderson.
Virginia scored four runs in the second inning, three in the third and six in the sixth inning to take a 13-0 lead. An Ian Farrow seventh-inning home run prevented Miami from getting shutout. Virginia improves to 26-4 with the win and 9-4 in the ACC, leading the Coastal. Miami is 20-10 overall and 8-5 in the ACC.
Andrew Ivins of 247 Sports provided a scouting report on Anderson that praised his 6’6 frame, his strong arm and the fact he’s a multi-sport athlete who also plays basketball. David Lake of Inside the U reported “Miami betting on big traits, development with the commitment of QB Judd Anderson.”
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald highlighed transfers the Hurricanes basketball and football programs are seeking. Jackson quoted Jim Larranaga stating that Miami is potentially seeking another guard if Isaiah Wong leaves as expected and another post player to take pressure off of Norchad Omier.
The football program is seeking outside wide receivers and a potential upgrade at cornerback. Safety could be a position to watch. Miami is extremely thin at safety. Starters Kamren Kinchens and James Williams and backups Brian Balom and Markeith Williams are the only safeties on the Miami roster.
Francis Mauigoa ad Samson Okunlola were named “among 10 college football freshmen to watch in 2023 spring games.” by Shehan Jeyarajah of CBS Sports. Jeyrajah mentioned that Mauigoa and Okunlola are among the top 25 signees in Miami history and with Mario Cristobal as head coach they should push to be starters.
