For a second straight year, head coach Mario Cristobal hosted the Miami Legends Camp for high school prospects hoping to bolster their recruiting stock.

Blue chip recruits from across the state flocked to the Hurricanes practice facilities to show off their skills on the field to Cristobal and his staff.

Joining the Hurricanes' football staff and team were some legendary Miami players including Michael Irvin, Gino Torretta, Bryant McKinnie, and more.

The legends helped to lead the prospect through drills, providing guidance and motivation for the young athletes, and hopeful Hurricane stars.

While Miami has had a lull in championship-winning seasons, Irvin reminded players that each win amounts to something, and to not let any get away from the future legends.

Following the conclusion of the Legends Camp, multiple athletes received offers from Cristobal and his assistants.

One four-star athlete, defensive back Timothy Merritt committed to the Hurricanes program almost immediately following the camp.

"1000% committed," Merritt shared on social media, tagging multiple of the coaches who were at the camp, including Cristobal.

Larry Miles, a three-star wide receiver, earned an offer from the Hurricanes after impressing the staff at the Cristobal's camp. Miles had resounding reviews for the camp and Miami's staff.

Cristobal took over the Miami football program in 2022, after a four-year stint as the Oregon Ducks' head coach.

Since becoming the Canes' head coach, Cristobal has gone a disappointing 12-13 over the past two years. During this offseason, he has shocked many analysts with his impressive recruitment in the transfer portal and out of high schools across the nation.

Cristobal played for the Canes from 1989-92 and had his first coaching position as a graduate assistant with Miami in 1998.

From 2004-06, Cristobal was an assistant coach for the Canes, leading the tight end and offensive line units.
