It was a busy weekend for Miami recruiting, though none of the players interested in UM will make an impact next season.

The Hurricanes added four prep underclassman football recruits and secured a visit from a basketball transfer who will sit a year before suiting up.

Two of the football players are from the class of 2020: Henry Gray (6-foot-1, 180 pounds), a cornerback from Miami Central High, and Naples tight end Dominic Mammarelli (6-4, 220). Both are rated four stars by 247Sports. They join UM’s nine-player 2020 class, which is headlined by five-star wideout Leonard Manuel (Ocala).

Miami also picked up its first pair of 2021 commits, both of them unranked: Miami-Monsignor Pace safety James Williams (6-3, 200) and Miami Central offensive guard Laurence Seymore (6-1, 270). Canesport and 247Sports were first on the commitment news.

On the court, Oklahoma transfer guard Kameron McGusty (6-5, 190) will visit Coral Gables this weekend, a program source confirmed.

McGusty, who according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein is also considering Virginia Tech and Houston, will have two years of eligibility after sitting out this season. He was ESPN’s 46th-ranked player in the 2016 signing class and the 10th-ranked shooting guard. Ceding playing time to lottery-bound freshman Trae Young last year, McGusty averaged 8.0 points, down from 14.4 as a freshman.
