The Miami Hurricanes have used the 2021 class as an opportunity to one-up the offensive side of the ball. Next up on the spectrum, three-star Miami Palmetto wide receiver Brashard Smith, who recently announced that he’ll be making his college decision soon.
Smith would be a welcome addition to Rhett Lashlee’s offense. His ability as a speedy slot receiver would bode well for a Miami offense currently looking for one. He is 5-8.5′ and 190 lbs, very similar to Miami’s last great slot receiver Braxton Berrios, who runs a 4.34 40-time.
The 2019 Miami Herald All-Dade 8A-6A first-team selection recorded 36 receptions for 628 yards (17.4 yards per catch) and 13 touchdowns as a junior for the Panthers.
Back in May, Smith dropped his Top 5, listing Miami, Florida, Auburn, Oregon, and Tennessee. Smith was previously committed to the Gators but chose to reopen his recruitment on May 1.
247Sports’ Andrew Ivins released his Crystal Ball for Smith on Saturday, predicting him to select the Hurricanes. The Canes have the opportunity to grab their third receiver in the 2021 class, along with wideouts Romello Brinson and Jacolby George.
