Coach Al Golden and Miami’s recruiting efforts have suffered mightily under the dark cloud of a bumbling, 22-month long investigation into boosters and infractions committed under the program’s previous regime.
It finally looks like that cloud has been lifted, however. The NCAA, never seen as the most legitimate governing body, is now investigating itself after some officials improperly obtained evidence in the case. Thus, Golden was able to put on a late charge for several big-time recruits.
The class itself, ranked at No. 21 by ESPN, consists of 17 talented young men, including Ray Lewis’ son and four-star wide receviver Stacy Coley. The No. 4 wideout in the nation is bringing the swagger back to The U.
There are six members of the ESPN150, compared to only four for an average top 40 class. While there are no five-star recruits, eight guys are four-star and nine are three-stars.
So, what do you think? Are you impressed by Golden’s haul, or do you think he and his staff could have even done better?
It’s time to have your voice heard, Canes Fam, and give your program’s recruiting class a grade.
