CHARLOTTE, N.C. — UM’s Paradise Camp, its invite-only summer recruiting event, will be held July 21-22 on campus, coach Mark Richt said Friday.

The event, which is modeled after the “Dawg Night” he hosted at Georgia, was a smash hit when he debuted it last year.

“It showcases our university and our players and coaching staff and former players and their love for this place. It’s awesome,” he said. “We’re trying to attract the greatest players in this country to come and compete and get after it. Hopefully we’ll have a good turnout.”

Miami’s top-rated 2018 recruiting class is expected to attend en masse, and several top targets have told recruiting websites they will show. (The Post will have full coverage next week.)

Richt said the event will be held on UM’s intramural fields, with Greentree Practice Fields under construction.

Last year, UM greats Ray Lewis and Michael Irvin spoke to players, and a slew of former stars participated as coaches. Lewis is rumored to be returning this year, and Duke Johnson is another name believed to be involved.

UM said it would release more information about the camp Monday.
