The Miami football team earned their fourth commitment in the 2024 class, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Southern University Lab School defensive back Dylan Day. Dylan joins three-star quarterback Judd Anderson, kicker Abram Murray and four-star wide receiver Chance Robinson in the 2024 Miami recruiting class.

Day is a rising prospect in the 2024 class. Arizona State, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and West Virginia are the other Power Five programs that offered Day scholarships. Miami defensive coordinator Lance Guidry who is a Louisiana native is credited with Day committing to the Hurricanes.

Day is ranked the 72nd safety and 22nd prospect in Louisiana in the class of 2024 per 247 Sports. The 247 Sports scouting report on Day mentions that he also runs track and played for the varsity baseball team at Southern Lab Prep. Day clocked a 11.33 100-meter dash last month and has run 22.59 in the 200 meters.

Day is a versatile defensive back that has played multiple positions in the secondary. The 247 Sports profile lists Day as 6’0 168 pounds and On3 has Day as 5’11 165. Day visited the Miami football program this weekend for the spring game. LSU received a visit from Day last month.

Day told CaneSport he plans on visiting other schools and that he will take an official visit to Miami this summer. Gaby Urrutia of Inside the U stated Day“proves to be a physical defender who seeks contact. He can get it done at all three spots…Day could factor in at the slot or up on top of the defense as a high safety.”

Next. Miami top WRs asserted themselves this spring. dark

To be a physical defender in college Day will clearly have to add more muscle and fill out. At this point the consensus implies that Day is likely to be a player who needs a year or two of college to mature before becoming a major contributor. Miami needed to add depth in the secondary after eight defensive backs transferred after 2022.
