Miami’s 2018 class could prove to be better than the 2017 signees

Miami loved its 2017 class but hopes its 2018 class is even better.

The Hurricanes have seven commits as of now, headlined by 4-star cornerbacks Josh Jobe and Gilbert Frierson. Both are 6-1, 180-pound, top-100 players. Jobe is rated the No. 12 cornerback nationally, per 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Receiver Daquris Wiggins is another 4-star recruit Miami will want to hold onto. He and Jobe, along with 3-star running back Jalen Patterson and 3-star corner Thomas Burns, committed to Al Golden. Frierson, 3-star offensive guard Delone Scaife and cornerback Demetrius Ivey gave their pledges to Mark Richt.

The Hurricanes’ class is ranked No. 3 nationally, but that’s more a function of them having a bunch of early commits rather than it being a star-studded cast.
