The Miami Hurricanes football program concluded its last official weekend in June hosting 2024 recruits for official visits. Duke head coach Chris Pollard became the latest baseball coach to turn down Miami. The Hurricanes should learn this week if they receive commitments from a few prospects expected to announce.

The Miami Hurricanes football program had its biggest weekend of official visits with 20 prospects in Coral Gables. Six of the visitors this weekend were already committed to Miami. Offensive linemen Moritz Schmoranzer and Zuri Madison are expected to make their commitment announcements this week.

Schmoranzer took his official visit to Miami last weekend and Madison was in Coral Gables this past weekend. Miami is in tight competition for Madison and Schmoranzer. CaneSport reported on Sunday that Madison’s commitment announcement is Wednesday. Schmoranzer tweeted his commitment will be on Friday.

Another player to watch for Miami in the 2024 class is four-star defensive lineman Artavius Jones. Miami is trending for Jones with a 53.7 percent chance for a commitment per On3. Three-star DL Daylen Russell is the only player upfront on the Hurricanes’ defense that has committed for 2024.

Kendall Rogers of D1 Baseball reported on Sunday that Pollard turned down Miami. Earlier this weekend, former LSU National Championship head coach Paul Manieri withdrew his name from contention to replace Gino DiMare. Former Major League shortstop Troy Tulowitzki could still be a name to watch as the next Miami head coach.

Brian Smith of All Hurricanes provided an update following the weekend of official visits. Smith stated that Miami made the biggest moves with wide receiver/flex tight end Caleb Odom and Palmetto wide receiver Jacory Barney, Jr. Smith expects Miami to receive between five and seven commits by the end of July.
