Long-time national analyst Phil Steele named the Miami Hurricanes football team the fourth most improved entering the 2023 season. Miami remained seventh in the updated transfer class rankings posted by 247 Sports earlier this week. David Lake of Inside the U wrote “Defensive end recruiting continues to be a strength for Miami” 

Alex Weber of On3 transcribed part of the comments from Steele in his annual college football issue. Steele listed having nine starters back that includes quarterback Tyler Van Dyke. Van Dyke is expected to thrive in the new offense. Steele believes that three tough road games plus Clemson prevent an ACC title.

Brad Crawford of 247 Sports wrote about the “Transfer portal rankings: College football’s 10 best classes in 2023 recruiting cycle” in which Miami ranks seventh. Crawford mentioned his “Hot names: Javion Cohen, OL (Alabama); Matt Lee, OL (UCF); Francisco Mauigoa, LB (Washington State)” among the 2023 Miami transfers.

Lake examined the seven Miami defensive ends that have signed or committed in the 2019 through 2024 classes. Among the players in that group are fifth-year senior Jahfari Harvey and freshman Rueben Bain. Miami will have a deep group of pass rushers in 2023. Lake credited the past and current Miami staffs for the DEs.
