4-star combo guard Harlond Beverly commits to Miami

Miami Basketball is working on putting a disappointing 2018-19 season in past. This week, things continued in a positive fashion with the commitment of 4-star combo guard Harlond Beverly. The 6-foot-4 Beverly played his prep basketball for Florida-based prep powerhouse Montverde Academy, which is about four hours north of Coral Gables.

Beverly, the No. 82 prospect in the 2019 class per 247 Sports, joins early signees Isaiah Wong and Anthony Walker in Miami’s 2019 class. Wong is a 4-star prospect, too; 247 Sports now ranks Miami’s class as a top-25 bunch.

The Hurricanes beat out a plethora of programs for Beverly, too, including Michigan State, Virginia, Ohio State, Florida and Louisville. Picking Miami over Sparty is notable because Beverly initial hails from the suburbs of Detroit.
