Tight end Will Mallory and cornerback D.J. Ivey became the second and third Miami Hurricanes selected in the NFL draft after Tyrique Stevenson was drafted in the second round on Friday night. Several Miami football alums signed on Saturday night as undrafted free agents. The Miami baseball team won its series versus Louisville.
Mallory was the 162nd pick overall in the fifth round by the Indianapolis Colts. Ivey was somewhat of a surprise pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, 246th overall in the seventh round of the NFL Draft. Mitchell Agude, Louis Hedley, Caleb Johnson and D.J. Scaife all signed as undrafted free agents.
Agude and Scaife signed with the Dolphins, Hedley signed with the New Orleans Saints and Johnson with the New York Jets. Agude signing with the Dolphins is the third year in a row the Fish have signed or drafted a Hurricanes edge rusher. Jaelan Phillips was a first-round pick in 2021 and DeAndre Johnson a UDFA in 2022.
After falling behind 4-0 on Saturday following an 11-0 loss at Louisville on Friday night the Miami Hurricanes baseball team rallied for a 10-7 win. Miami won the series after winning the opener on Friday night at Louisville Slugger Park. The Hurricanes improved to 28-16 overall and 14-10 in second place in the ACC Coastal.
Gaby Urrutia of Inside the U wrote that Miami secondary coach “Jahmile Addae coached or recruited six defensive backs drafted this week .” Addae coached Ivey and Stevenson for Miami and a pair of players each from his time on the coaching staff at Georgia and Minnesota. Addae is one of the elite DB recruiters nationally.
