The University of Miami has moved past Penn State according to 247Sports 2018 Football Recruiting Composite Team Rankings. The Hurricanes moved into the top spot thanks to last night’s commitment from Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy four-star wide receiver Brian Hightower.
Miami already has 13 verbal commitments so far. Six of those prospects are four stars, while one (running back Lorenzo Lingard) is a five-star recruit. The other six verbals hold three-star ratings.
Six players in the class are ranked in the top 10 at their respective positions.
