Canes Land a Trio of Commits Over the Weekend

The Miami Hurricanes had some recent misses on the recruiting trail but bounced back in a big way over the weekend. The Canes landed three commits in three days to get their 2025 class started and bump their 2024 class back into the top fifteen nationally. 

Miami got things rolling on Friday with a commitment from 2025 four-star QB Luke Nickel out of Alpharetta, Georgia. Nickel is a 6’2-200lb product from Milton High School with a huge arm and impressive accuracy. The top 25 QB in the 2025 class has over 20 offers and committed to the Canes over the likes of Florida State, North Carolina, and Penn State. As the first commit in Miami’s 2025 class, Nickel will be the cornerstone of the Canes’ class and will help recruit talented prospects to join him.

The Hurricanes kept the momentum going on Saturday night in a big way as they flipped four-star defensive end Elias Rudolph from the University of Michigan. The talented edge rusher was originally from Deerfield Beach, but recently transferred to Taft High School in Cincinnati. At 6’4-220, Rudolph has elite length and speed coming off of the edge that had countless schools like Michigan, Ohio State and Florida State vying for his commitment. Rudolph committed to Michigan in early July, but took a late July visit to Miami where the Canes’ staff did a great job of laying the groundwork for the flip.

On Sunday night the Canes landed their third commit in as many days with the addition of three-star offensive lineman Kavion Broussard. Broussard stands at 6’6-275lbs and has all the tools that the Canes are looking for in a tackle in this class. After landing two five-star offensive tackles last season, Miami has been looking for high ceiling, athletic big men to develop at the tackle spot. Broussard fits that mold perfectly at over 6’6 with impressive athleticism and a reported sub 5.0 forty time at nearly 280lbs. 

As the season quickly approaches, the Canes seem to be picking up steam on the recruiting trail. Miami will look to continue their recruiting run into the start of the season and stack up some wins on the field. If the Canes can show solid improvement during the 2023 season, their 2024 recruiting class will be able to reach new heights.
