Ten of Miami’s recruits for 2018 enrolled in January and participated in spring drills in March. At that time, Post contributor Daniel Gould offered a scouting report for each player, plus a grade, a projection and other interesting tidbits.

With another wave of 2018 freshmen on the way — summer classes start May 21 — here’s a look at the rest of the class.

Gould is a Dallas-based data analyst who has been charting UM games for four years and reviewing signing classes for the last six. His evaluations are mostly based on reviews of high school highlight films, which are readily available on sites like Hudl and YouTube. He grades players on a 10-to-5 scale, rating their current skills and projecting their potential:

10: five-star caliber now, eventual All-American and immediate impact player.
9: upper-tier four-star, All-ACC caliber.
8: mid-tier four-star, impactful multi-year starter without as high a ceiling.
7: lower four-star, solid starter but not someone to build around.
6: high three-star, a role player with physical limitations that prevent a full-time starting job.
5: mid-tier three-star, likely a project or a special-teamer.
Below 5: Not a scholarship-level player at Miami.

Next up: Camron Davis, a small-but-powerful back from Miami’s Carol City High:

CAMRON DAVIS 

Davis

Gould’s grade: 7

Scouting report: “On the shorter side but has a muscular build. Good speed but really shines with his quick feet and short area movements. Uncanny ability to read defender’s movements and make small adjustments to avoid direct contact. Elite receiver out of the backfield and good enough to run routes split out. Tough runner and gives tremendous effort on short yardage runs. Low center of gravity and leg strength make him hard to take down and help keep him going after contact. Has experience running from spread sets and is effective on inside zone runs. Technique is fine in pass protection but could give more effort. Committed to Oregon State very early in his recruitment. Complimentary back that excels on quick inside runs and as a receiver in space.”

Davis isn’t headliner, but plenty good
Seems 2018 offensive recruits will fit in well
Expectations high for this class
