Miami Central offensive lineman Laurence Seymore has been committed to the Hurricanes since March of 2018. However, he’s still keeping all of his options open and is unsure of what the future holds.
“You never know what could happen just until that day comes you’ll see,” Seymore told 305Sports.
Seymore — 6-foot-1, 325 pounds — checks in as the second highest-rated commit for the Hurricanes’ 2021 recruiting cycle. According to 247Sports Composite, the Miami, FL native is ranked a four-star recruit, the No. 11 OG in the country, and the No. 156 overall player.
He was named to the MaxPreps Junior All-American second-team after starting at left tackle for a Miami Central team that finished 12-3 and captured the Class 6A State Title. Seymore’s little brother, Lamar, is also teammates with Laurence and is the only commit UM holds for the class of 2023.
This offseason, Seymore says he’s added 40 pounds compared to the weight he was playing at as a junior.
“My junior year that just passed I was playing at like 285 [pounds], and right now I’m 325 [pounds].”
Seymore stated that he speaks to the Hurricanes coaching staff every day and has gotten a lot closer to offensive line coach Garin Justice. Nonetheless, he still plans on taking all five of his visits.
“Right now I got three [four] that’s for sure. FSU, LSU, Georgia, and Penn State.”
With plenty of big-name schools hunting for Seymore, it’s going to take a winning season and excellent recruiting for Miami to hold his commitment and ultimately have him put pen to paper on Signing Day.
