Eight early enrollees on offense will compete for the Miami football team during spring practice, which begins March 4. Some of the early enrollees will compete for first-team snaps this spring. Miami has multiple early enrollees on offense who project as redshirts during the 2024 season. Miami signed the fourth-ranked 2024 class.

Offensive linemen Markell Bell, Nino Francavilla and Deryc Plazz, quarterback Judd Anderson, running back Chris Wheatley-Humphrey, tight end Elijah Lofton and wide receivers Ny Carr and JoJo Trader are the early enrollees on the Miami offense who will participate during spring practice.

Most of the Miami coaching staff returns in 2024. Wheatley-Humphrey will be working with new Miami RB coach Matt Merritt. Carr and Trader will be part of a Miami WR corps that will work to build chemistry with Washington State transfer quarterback Cam Ward. Miami returns a veteran offensive line in front of Ward.

The 2024 class is the second consecutive for Miami inside the top 10 nationally. Miami signed the seventh-ranked 2023 class. The hope is the talent upgrade will start to pay dividends on the field in 2024. Several of the 2023 and 2024 signees should make an impact with the Hurricanes this season.

The 2023 class was ranked seventh nationally. Edge rusher Rueben Bain was named the ACC Rookie Defensive Player of the Year. Mark Fletcher was the second leading rusher. Which Miami players will emerge this spring heading into the remainder of the offseason with a chance to make impacts in 2024?
