The Miami football program is in position to flip five-star defensive lineman Armondo Blount and four-star prospects, cornerback Xavier Lucas and running back Jordan Lyle per multiple recruiting outlets. All three prospects are current committed to other programs but trending to Miami. Blount, Lucas and Lyle all visited Miami this weekend.

Blount was committed to Miami in September before flipping to Florida State following an official visit in October. All signs point to Blount flipping back to Miami this week. Blount posted a picture of himself throwing up the U on X on Friday. Blount's mother stated on X he is not taking anymore visits before Wednesday.

On3 projects Miami with a 94.3 percent chance to sign Blount. Blount is the 24th prospect, fourth DL and fifth player in Florida in the 2024 class per 247 Sports.

Two crystal balls for Lyle flipped from Ohio State to Miami on Thursday, The On3 projections for Lyle have evolved towards Miami since Thursday. Miami now has a 95.2 percent chance to sign Lyle per On3. Lyle is the 152nd ranked prospect, 12th RB and 20th player in Florida in the 2024 class per the 247 Sports Composite rankings.

The 247 Sports and On3 projections are currently split on Lucas who is currently committed to Wisconsin. All three crystal balls for Lucas remain for Wisconsin. Two of the crystal balls were logged in October. Lucas committed to Wisconsin in August. Two On3 projections have been logged for Lucas to Miami in the last week.

Miami now has a 68.3 percent chance to sign Lucas per the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine. Commitments from Blount and Lyle would vault Miami past Florida, Texas and Florida State into the fourth ranked class nationally. Florida State would fall from third to fifth and Alabama would move up to third.

Miami would remain the fourth-ranked 2024 class with Blount, Lyle and Lucas. There could be other surprises from Mario Cristobal and the 2024 Miami class this week. Miami is working hard on five-star Chaminade-Madonna wide receiver Jeremiah Smith who is committed to Ohio State. Smith is expected to sign with the Buckeyes.

No matter what happens this week, Miami should sign a top 10 recruiting class for the second consecutive year. Cristobal has made a huge impact for Miami in recruiting as expected. Miami needs the talent on the roster to begin to translate to success on the field. Next year will be a pivotal season for Cristobal.
