The Miami Hurricanes baseball team could not solve Texas starter, Lebarron Johnson who pitched a 130-pitch complete game in a 4-1 Longhorns win. The Miami football program has a few open positions in its 2024 recruiting class. That should take care of itself with 37 official visitors this month.

Texas began the game with a two-run home run by star outfielder Dylan Campbell who extended his hitting streak to 37 games. That was all the Longhorns needed. In nine innings Johnson allowed seven hits, one run, one earned on a Dominic Pitelli home run, with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Miami has a quick turnaround. The Miami Hurricanes play Louisiana at noon on Sunday in an elimination game. Rafe Schlesinger saved the Miami bullpen. Karson Ligon started and allowed four runs in two-plus innings. Schlesinger pitched seven innings, allowing four hits, no runs, none earned and no walks with nine strikeouts.

The Miami football program has players committed to the 2024 class for every position except cornerback, edge rusher, interior offensive lineman and tight end. Miami has a few 2024 commits who can play multiple positions. Miami is trending for players at CB, edge rusher, IOL and TE to fill those vacancies.

Crawford was impressed with the Miami Hurricanes additions of center Matt Lee, guard Javion Cohen and linebacker Francisco Mauigoa specifically. Cohen, Lee and Mauigoa are all projected to start for Miami entering the 2023 season.
