The Miami Hurricanes came into Wednesday’s National Signing Day with the No. 17 ranked recruiting class, according to 247 Sports’ Composite Team Rankings.
Coach Manny Diaz and his staff have owned the offseason thus far, after signing 18 prospects during the Early Signing Period and adding three graduate transfers to the roster. Houston Quarterback D’Eriq King, Temple Defensive End Quincy Roche, and FIU Kicker Jose Borregales.
Miami also added Three-Star Wide Receiver Keyshawn Smith, after flipping from Washington State.
The Miami Hurricanes were expected to have a quiet National Signing Day.

The biggest surprise of the day, the Miami Hurricanes were able to pick up Avantae Williams, the #1 ranked safety according to ESPN’s Recruiting Database.
The 5-foot-11, 170 pound 4-star prospect from DeLand, FL totaled 40 tackles and two interceptions as a Senior. Back in the spring he clocked a 4.52 in the 40-yard dash to go along with a 36.2-inch vertical jump.
247Sports’s Crystal Ball was 100% to Florida. However, as we learned, don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
This is a huge pickup for the Hurricanes, who’s recruiting class rose six spots to No. 12 in the 247Sports team rankings, ahead of Penn State, Notre Dame and Michigan.
Four-star Cornerback Isaiah Dunson signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.
Dunson adds length and depth to an already strong group of defensive backs at the University of Miami.
At 6’2, 180 pounds, Dunson is the 324th ranked player in the Class of 2020, the 21st ranked CB and 31st ranked player in Georgia.
Head Coach Manny Diaz, Safeties Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator Ephraim Banda, and Cornerbacks Coach Mike Rumph have done an exceptional job adding talent to the U.
