While waiting for more good news from its big weekend, Miami added a piece to its future.

One of the top-rated underclassmen in the nation, wide receiver Leonard Manuel, said he will play for the Hurricanes.

247Sports rates Manuel, listed at 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, as the sixth-best player in the 2020 class, the second-best wide receiver and the best overall prospect in the state. Manuel will be a sophomore at Ocala-Vanguard High, the same program that produced Hurricanes freshman quarterback N’Kosi Perry.

In other recruiting news, four-star Georgia-based quarterback Jarren Williams decommitted from Kentucky, following his UM visit. He will reportedly visit Ohio State and Auburn next.

UM also has a 2020 commitment from athlete Avantae Williams, whom 247 rates 13th overall in that class. Miami’s 2019 class is rated fifth nationally and the 2018 group is rated fourth.
