The Miami Hurricanes continue to improve its offseason recruiting, as they are once again placed in a prime situation to add two talented prospects from the Sunshine State.

On Friday, class of 2022 running back, Jaylon Glover, and class of 2021 athlete, Kamonte Grimes, released their ‘Top 5’ schools, including UM.

Glover placed Miami in his shortlist of schools, along with Georgia Tech, UCF, Utah, and Kentucky.

Glover — 5-foot-9, 190 pounds — has shown much promise in his short high school career, using his elusiveness and power that’s allowed him to dominate opposing defenders. The Lakeland, Florida native had a remarkable sophomore campaign as he amassed 212 carries for 1,592 yards, ten 100 plus rushing yard games, and 14 rushing touchdowns for Lake Gibson High School.

The incoming junior can ultimately become a valuable asset to the running back room in the Hurricanes offense. His speed and strength are similar to that of former Canes running back, Duke Johnson.

The three-star athlete, Kamonte Grimes, limited his options on Friday to Miami, Kentucky, Michigan, Maryland, and Nebraska.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Grimes, listed at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, is pegged as the No. 36 ATH in the nation and the No. 79 player in Florida. The Naples, Florida hometown star can perform on both sides of the gridiron. However, Grimes flourishes as a wide-out. His lengthy frame permits him to snatch difficult passes over defensive backs with ease.

The underrated prospect excelled as a junior, garnering 28 receptions for 578 yards, and five touchdowns at Palmetto Ridge High School.

Rob Likens and the Miami Hurricanes offered Grimes a scholarship back in late March, not shying away from the Naples phenom despite commitments from wide receivers Jacolby George and Romello Brinson.
