Five-star 2024 defensive lineman David Stone included the Miami Hurricanes football program in his top five with Florida, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon,  and Texas A&M. On the Inside the U Through the Smoke podcast, they covered Miami at ACC Kickoff and an important upcoming recruiting weekend.

Stone is the seventh-ranked prospect, second defensive lineman and second recruit in Florida out of IMG Academy in Bradenton in the 2024 class. Stone told Hayes Fawcett of On3 “Miami is definitely the family favorite. Their staff as a whole has made the best impression on my siblings and parents.”

Stone would be the highest-ranked commit in the 2024 Miami class. Five-star wide receiver Joshisa Trader is currently the top-ranked commit to Miami for 2024. Four-star DL Marquise Lightfoot is currently the highest-rated defensive player committed to the 2024 Miami recruiting class.

Gaby Urrutia of Inside the U provided extensive coverage of the visitors to Miami this weekend on the podcast and in multiple articles posted over the last few days. Urrutia covered three visitors to Miami on Thursday. Miami currently has the 16th-ranked recruiting class in the 2024 247 Sports composite rankings.

Canes County recruiting analyst Frank Tucker wrote about the “South Florida Linebacker/Athlete Prospects to Watch for Miami” for the high school underclassmen entering the 2023 football season. Tucker profiled nine LBs throughout South Florida as prospects to watch for Miami in the 2025 class and beyond.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald stated “What Miami Hurricanes players’ pass coverage numbers and defensive grades tell us.” Jackson conducted an extensive examination of the Miami defensive backs and linebackers in pass coverage last season, which included incoming transfers for 2023.
