Recruiting: QB N’Kosi Perry, LB Billy Joseph decommit from Miami

Two players who made commitments to the Hurricanes under former coach Al Golden backed off those pledges.

Saying he “made a decision too early,” quarterback N’Kosi Perry decommitted. Linebacker Billy Joseph, who is a year younger, said he’s out, too.

Perry, a senior-to-be at Ocala-Vanguard High, pledged to Miami last September.

Joseph, who will be a junior at Miami Northwestern, committed last March.

A three-star recruit, Perry is listed at 6-foot-3 and 170 pounds. He is rated by 247Sports as the seventh-best dual-threat quarterback in the 2017 class. ESPN rated him 11th. Rivals has not rated him.

UM coach Mark Richt, who has traditionally favored drop-back passers, signed four-star Jack Allison this week. Returning starter Brad Kaaya has two years of eligibility remaining.

Joseph, a four-star prospect according to 247Sports, is rated the No. 5 outside linebacker in the 2018 class by the website. He is not rated elsewhere.

Miami’s 2017 class, which includes 10 commits, is rated third nationally by 247Sports. The 2018 class has four commits and is rated — at this even earlier juncture — seventh.
