The Miami Hurricanes football program received commitments from transfers, cornerback Jadais Richard from Vanderbilt and running back Ajay Allen of Nebraska. Brad Crawford of 247 Sports listed his 2023 bowl projections. Isaac Trotter of 247 Sports called Matthew Cleveland to Miami as a match made in heaven.

Richard provides the Miami Hurricanes football program with length at CB at 6’2, 198 pounds. Vanderbilt signed Richard as a safety in the 2022 class. Richard has three years of eligibility remaining. As a true freshman last season Richard had six tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack and two passes defended.

Allen was productive for Nebraska in 2022 with 33 carries for 190 yards and two touchdowns as a true freshman. A  broken collarbone against Oklahoma in the fourth game of the 2022 season suffered by Allen cost him the remainder of the year. Allen has four years of eligibility remaining with a medical redshirt in 2022.

Crawford projects the Miami Hurricanes to return to the Cheez-It Bowl for the third time in the last eight years. Crawford projects a Texas Tech vs. Miami matchup in Orlando. Miami won the 2016 Cheez-It Bowl 31-14 versus West Virginia and lost 37-34 to Oklahoma State in 2020. Texas Tech was 8-5 last season.

The commitment from Cleveland to transfer to Miami on Sunday fills a huge need for Miami on the frontline. Trotter stated” MATTHEW CLEVELAND-TO-MIAMI IS A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN” in his “College basketball’s 10 takes: What’s next for Maryland; Is there enough room for Bronny James at USC?” published on Monday.
