The Hurricanes have the consensus No. 1 recruiting class for 2018 and are adding more talent for the coming years.
The latest prospect to commit: defensive lineman Derick Hunter, a two-way 2019 prospect from Fort Myers-Dunbar High.
Hunter, listed at 6-foot-5 and 251 pounds, is rated four stars by Rivals and 247Sports.
“My mind [has] been made up” for some time now, he tweeted.
He told 247Sports that Miami wants him to play defensive tackle. That website’s early rankings peg Hunter as the 13th-best strongside defensive end in the nation for next year’s cycle.
UM’s 2019 recruiting class also includes four-star wide receiver Brieon Fuller and three-star linebackers Diamante Howard and Jesiah Pierre.
Hunter, who also plays tight end, is being recruited by Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon and others.
