The Miami Hurricanes baseball team never trailed in a 7-2 upset win over Wake Forest in the ACC Tournament semifinals on Saturday in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The Miami football team picked up its ninth commitment in the 2024 class from Miami Columbus defensive lineman Daylen Russell on Saturday night.

The Miami Hurricanes baseball team got on the board first with a two-run single by third baseman Yohandy Morales in the top of the third inning. Morales finished the game with three hits in four at-bats, three runs scored, two home runs and four RBIs. Miami advances to the ACC Title game for the first time since 2012.

Clemson won its semifinal at Durham Athletic Park over North Carolina on Saturday. The Hurricanes and Tigers will meet for the first time this season in the ACC Championship Game. The first pitch on Sunday is at noon. Miami could be playing for a chance to receive a top-eight national seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The commitment from Russell moved the 2024 Miami recruiting class to 22nd nationally from 25th. Russell was named the 4M-3M Miami-Dade County Defensive Player of the Year by the Miami Herald. Miami has built a top 25 class with four-star wide receiver Chance Robinson as the only 2024 blue-chip commit.

Joe Spears of On3 wrote that “Miami ‘in the mix’ for On3 No. 1 recruit Dylan Stewart.” On3 lists Ohio State as the favorite for Stewart with a 34.3 percent chance for a commitment. Alabama is listed as the second favorite at 30.0 percent and Miami is third at 23.2 percent for a Stewart commitment.
