CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA (HurricaneSports) – There are plenty of well-known names leading the way for the Miami Hurricanes in the opening week of fall camp, but the veterans are not the only ones making plays on the Greentree Practice Fields.
Miami welcomed a signing class ranked No. 1 in the state of Florida.
It includes 14 ESPN300 prospects and was ranked in the top-two in the ACC by every major scouting service, meaning the Canes have newcomers that are expected to make a difference.
“Some of the young guys [were] making a few plays here and there,” Head coach Mark Richt said following Day 1 of camp.
“I know Dee Wiggins had a really great contested catch in the end zone one time. [Marquez] Ezzard – once he learns what to do – I think is going to be a pretty good ballplayer. I really like the young [defensive backs] – you have [Al] Blades doing a good job. Cam [Davis], the tailback out of Carol City, did a nice job today. You can see his quickness and those types of things.”
While Wiggins, Ezzard, Blades and Davis flashed their skills on the first day of camp, different freshmen have stepped up throughout camp to show they can be contributors early. But flashes of ability alone won’t get you on the field at Miami.
Consistency is what will help you climb the depth chart.
