Nearly all of the University of Miami’s 2021 commits were on the field Thursday and Friday night, displaying the stellar play that earned them a scholarship.

In a mix of 20 players from Florida, one from Georgia and the other from Texas, it was an impressive week for Manny Diaz’ recruiting class, showing exactly why they’re ranked No. 2 in the ACC.

Here are some of the top performers:

NOTE: Some of the stats haven’t been released.

James Williams | American Heritage

Williams, the No. 12 ranked player and No. 1 athlete in the nation by 247Sports, blocked a 22-yard field goal from Cardinal Gibbons kicker Chris Silverstien, picking up the ball and returning it 90-yards for a touchdown.

Committed to Miami since late July, Williams’ stellar defensive efforts led the Patriots to a 23-17 victory over the Chiefs.

Malik Curtis | Bishop Verot

The three-star was nothing short of spectacular, totaling 115 yards and three touchdowns on four catches. Curtis finished Verot’s 42-0 win over Lely with 148 all-purpose yards.

Jacolby George | Plantation

Playing through what seemed to be an injury, the four-star wide receiver notched 9 receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown. George added another score on an 8-yard rush.

On the defensive end, the orally committed Cane had three tackles and one forced fumble.

Tyler Johnson |Miami Killian

The three-star outside linebacker blocked an extra point and garnered at least one sack, helping Miami Killian blowout Miami Norland 48-19.

Elijah Arroyo | Independence

En route to a 63-7 win against Denton, the 6-foot-4 tight end pulled in one reception for a 23-yard touchdown.

Thomas Davis | Lowndes

One of the many players who verbally committed to UM in the summer, Davis had three total tackles, including one for loss, as the Vikings moved to 6-0 on the season with a 17-13 win over Tift County.
