In a momentous triumph for Head Coach Mario Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes, offensive lineman Kavion Broussard from Zachary, Louisiana, has officially committed to the University of Miami. He chose Miami over arch-rivals Florida State, as well as other contenders including Cincinnati, Missouri, and Texas Tech. This pivotal commitment was announced on Sunday evening, sending waves of excitement through the Miami football community and signaling a significant victory over their perennial adversaries.

Broussard’s decision to wear the orange and green jersey represents a big coup for the Hurricanes’ 2024 recruiting class, which continues to gain momentum with recent commitments. This weekend saw back-to-back commitments from four-star defensive end Elias Rudolph on Saturday and Broussard today, along with their first class of 2025 commitment on Friday, a four-star quarterback named Luke Nickel.

Standing at an imposing 6-foot-6 inches and weighing in at 276-pounds, Broussard’s choice makes him the fourth offensive lineman to join the Hurricanes’ ranks in this recruiting cycle, teaming up with Juan Minaya, Nino Francavilla, and Deryc Plazz.

One of Broussard’s most striking attributes is his considerable size and the immense potential for growth he brings to the table. With a formidable build and innate athletic prowess, he emerges as a prime candidate for development under the tutelage of offensive line coach Alex Mirabal and the leadership of Head Coach Mario Cristobal. Both coaches are renowned for their prowess in molding exceptional offensive linemen, and Broussard’s commitment underscores his belief in their ability to elevate his skills to new heights on the collegiate level.

Adding an extra layer of intrigue to this commitment is the fact that Broussard’s decision was reached without an official visit to the Miami campus. This speaks volumes about the reputation of the Hurricanes’ coaching staff and the allure of the program itself under Coach Cristobal, as it goes against the norm in the recruiting world.

Broussard’s pledge bolsters Miami’s 2024 recruiting class, which now stands at 21 total commitments. In terms of national recognition, Broussard’s commitment has propelled the Hurricanes up the recruiting class rankings on Sunday. In the wake of this development, Miami has surged to the 15th-ranked class in the nation for the class of 2024, according to the recruiting industry services.
