Rivals National Recruiting analyst Greg Smith named the 2025 Miami Class fifth among tight ends and wide receivers. Four-star WR Waden Charles is the only wideout or TE committed to Miami in 2025. Smith is impressed with where Miami is in the 2025 cycle for receivers.

Miami has commitments from Charles, linebacker Elijah Melendez, offensive lineman Lamar Williams and quarterback Luke Nickel in the 2025 Class. All four commits are four-star prospects in the Rivals rankings. Miami has visits scheduled for this spring and summer with several blue-chip TEs and WRs.

Per On3, four-star TE Chase Loftin is visiting the weekend of April 9, four-star Cardinal Newman WR Neshaun Montgomery is visiting the weekend of June 14 and four-star Homestead WR Cortez Mills will be in Coral Gables the weekend of June 21. Expect multiple other 2025 blue-chip WRs to visit Miami.

Charles is the 177 overall prospect, 30th WR and 30th recruit in Florida in the 2025 Rivals rankings. Smith ranks LSU, Georgia, Oregon and Ohio State ahead of Miami in the 2025 TE/WR rankings. Oregon is the only program in Smith's top five with two WRs committed for 2025.

"5, Miami: The Hurricanes are off to a good start with four-star wideout Waden Charles in the fold. They will surely add to the class and are working hard on elite prospects Jaime Ffrench and Samari Reed."

Following Nick Saban's retirement in January, Ffrench de-committed from Alabama. Since his de-commitment, Ffench attended Junior Day at Florida State between offers from USC and Texas. Hunter Shelton of On3 reported on Monday "Florida State, Ohio State setting the pace for elite WR Jaime Ffrench."

Penn State and Florida are the front runners for Reed per On3. Penn State has a 38.1 percent chance to gain a commitment from Reed and Florida is at 33.3 percent. Everyone else is less than three percent. Florida, Miami and Penn State are the only programs to receive visits from Reed per On3.
