The Miami Hurricanes baseball team defeated Duke 10-1 to win its weekend series and conclude the regular season. With transfers nearing the end of their decisions, multiple outlets examined how Miami did in the portal. Miami is in the top five for a 2024 offensive lineman and Leonard Taylor is projected to be a breakout player.
The Miami Hurricanes baseball team won two out of three versus Duke this weekend. Duke won the series opener on Thursday night before Miami won 10-8 on Friday night and 10-1 on Saturday afternoon. Miami will be the fourth seed in the ACC Tournament next week. Duke and North Carolina State are in the same pool.
In an article about “Transfer portal spring window takeaways” Chris Hummer of 247 Sports stated that “MIAMI FINDS A FIELD STRETCHER.” Hummer was referencing wide receiver Tyler Harrell who transferred to Miami from Alabama. Hummer expects Harrell to be an impact player if he stays healthy.
David Lake of Inside the U wrote that “Miami is one of five teams with top ten high school recruiting and transfer classes.” The recent additions of defensive lineman Anthony Campbell from Louisiana and Harrell moved the 2024 Miami transfer class to sixth nationally. Miami signed the seventh-ranked 2024 high school class.
The Miami Hurricanes football program was named in the top five for Jacksonville offensive lineman Deryc Plazz. No crystal balls have been logged for Plazz. On3 lists North Carolina State as the favorite for a commitment from Plazz at 31.7 percent. Miami is listed second with an 18.6 percent chance for a Plazz commitment.
Dean Straka of CBS Sports named Miami Hurricanes defensive tackle Leonard Taylor as one of his 2023 breakout stars. Straka stated that Taylor “has the credentials to create headaches for opposing quarterbacks.” Taylor has the potential to be a first-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft with Miami safety Kamren Kinchens.
