The Miami Hurricanes football program lost out on five-star tight end Davon Mitchell who committed to Oklahoma on Sunday. Third baseman Yohandy Morales is expected to be selected in the first round of the MLB Draft. Miami basketball alums Jordan Miller and Isaiah Wong made their debut in the NBA Summer League.

Mitchell was trending to Oklahoma leading up to his commitment on Saturday. Previously in the Class of 2025, Mitchell is reclassifying to the 2024 Class. Greg Biggins of 247 Sports reported that the recruitment battle with Alabama and Miami was a tight one for Oklahoma before Mitchell committed to the Sooners.

Brian Smith of All Hurricanes asked, How Will Miami’s 2024 Wide Receiver Recruiting Finish?” Four-star 2024 prospect Chance Robinson is the only WR committed to Miami in the 2024 class. Smith projects that Miami needs to sign three WRs in the 2024 Class. Five-star WR Joshisa Trader is a primary target.
