Miami football wide receiver coach Kevin Beard is currently the top recruiter in the ACC and 14th nationally per the 247 Sports rankings. Beard is credited with commitments from four-star WRs Joshisa Trader, Ny Carr and Chance Robinson in the 2024 class. Carr committed to Miami on Sunday after visiting Miami last weekend.

Trader is the third-ranked WR in the 2024 class, Carr is 12th and Robinson is 27th. Carr, Robinson and Trader are the three highest-rated WRs that Beard has been credited with gaining commitments from during his coaching career. Miami currently has the second-ranked 2024 class in the ACC behind Florida State.

Florida State currently has the sixth-ranked class nationally and Miami is 12th. The Seminoles have four commitments at WR. Four-star Miami Central prospect Lawayne McCoy is the highest-rated WR in the 2024 Florida State Class. McCoy is the eighth-ranked WR in the 2024 Class.

Beard joined the Miami football program during the 2023 offseason from Toledo. Beard was previously on the Miami staff as the assistant director of football operations in 2014 and the WR and passing game coordinator in 2015. As a player, Beard was a starting WR on the 2001 Miami national championship team.

Beard is the third highest-ranked WR recruiter nationally behind Holmon Wiggins of Penn State and Brian Hartline of Ohio State. Hartline is perennially among the top WR recruiters in the country and has been named as a future head coach. Beard has also secured a top 2025 WR with a commitment from Waden Charles.

Charles is the 230th-ranked prospect, 13th athlete and 33rd recruit in Florida in the 2025 class. Miami also has commitments in the 2025 class from five-star defensive lineman Armando Blount and three-star quarterback Luke Nickel. The 2025 Miami class is ranked ninth nationally. Beard should continue to thrive for Miami.
