The Miami Hurricanes football program picked up another key transfer with Oklahoma cornerback Jaden Davis tweeting on Monday that he is returning to South Florida. After winning three of its four games last week the Miami baseball team moved from 11th to 16th in the D1Baseball National poll.
Davis transfers from Oklahoma to Miami after starting 22 games and playing in 47 in four seasons with the Sooners. Pro Football Focus via Matt Shodell of CaneSport gave Davis a 62.3 overall grade overall and 60.8 in coverage. Davis played at St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale in high school.
Marcus Benjamin of Canes County stated that “The competition in Miami’s defensive back room elevates with Davis addition.” Davis will be expected to start for Miami in 2023. At the very least Davis should be a critical part of the rotation at CB. Miami also brought in CB transfers Davonte Brown and Terry Roberts for 2023.
The Miami Hurricanes baseball team defeated Florida Atlantic 12-9 last Tuesday, won the opening game in a three-game series 6-5 at Louisville on Thursday, lost 11-0 to the Cardinals on Friday and rallied for a 10-7 win on Saturday. Miami is 28-16 overall and 14-10 in the ACC a half-game behind Duke in the ACC Coastal.
Before Davis committed to Miami on Monday night, Gaby Urrutia of Inside the U examined where Miami was with various transfers. Urrutia correctly called Davis stating that Miami was in a good place with the CB. Urrutia evaluated a pair of other CBs and is pleased that the Miami two-deep depth chart stayed intact after spring practice.
Brian Smith of AllHurricanes.Com profiled when five Miami prospects safety Zaquan Patterson, wide receiver Joshisa Trader and defensive linemen T.A. Cunningham, Justin Scott and David Stone could commit. Miami currently has the 26th-ranked 2024 class with four-star WR Chance Robinson as the lone blue-chip commitment.
