The Miami Hurricanes add another defensive talent to their 2022 recruiting class.
On Friday, four-star defensive tackle Brandon Cleveland chose the Hurricanes over Florida State, Auburn, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, UNC, NC State, and Penn State among others.
Cleveland — 6-foot-3, 260 pounds — has an impressive frame that is built for dominating anyone who lines up in front of him.
His physical attributes have placed him as the No. 13 defensive tackle in the nation and the No. 20 overall player in Florida per 247Sports Composite. Cleveland has used his athleticism to his advantage at Seffner Christian Academy, totaling 76 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks last season. He also was a key contributor to the Crusaders’ 2A state semifinals appearance.
With the addition of Cleveland, Coach Blake Baker has added another weapon to the loaded defensive line at Miami.
The Tampa, Fl native will be joining three-star strong-side defensive end, Jamaal Johnson, as the second class of 2022 recruit to commit to UM.
