The Miami Hurricanes have completed the Miami Northwestern recruitment puzzle as they add the fifth and final piece to their 2020 recruiting class.
On Saturday, Miami Northwestern safety, Kamren Kinchens, announced that he’ll be wearing orange and green at the next level of his football career.
His fellow teammates and his strong relationship with Miami’s safety coach, Ephraim Banda, is what ultimately lead to his final decision.
Kinchens joins TE Kahlil Brantley, CB Tim Burns Jr., LB Ja’Corey Hammett, and WR Romello Brinson as the fifth Miami Northwestern prospect to commit to the University of Miami. These rising seniors at ‘The West’ are teaming up to “Make The Crib Great.”
Kinchens, 5-foot-11, 201 lbs, is one of the top defensive backs and return specialists in the nation. His coaches have referred to him as a quarterback on defense due to his intelligence on defensive formations.
Kinchens’ playmaking ability is remarkable, given that he notched 74 tackles, 11 interceptions, three tackles for loss, and a punt return touchdown in 2019. His electric play was key to Miami Northwestern’s Class 5A State Championship run.
247Sports composite rankings have him as the No. 299 prospect in the country and the No. 20 safety in the country.
Kinchens’ swagger and ability to sway the momentum of games resembles former Canes defensive back, Sheldrick Redwine. Both Redwine and Kinchens play with a chip on their shoulder and constantly make eye-grabbing plays.
He has all the tools necessary to be a superstar at UM. He has confidence, charisma, an elite work ethic, and a winning mentality. He’ll be an impact player from day one in the Canes’ secondary.
Kinchens is also the first safety and the eighth four-star recruit to commit to the Hurricanes this cycle.
