The Miami Hurricanes hosted top flight recruits from across the nation at their fourth annual Paradise Camp this past weekend.
Numerous alumni and NFL greats were present and the scene was intense for a summer workout.
Michael Irvin was among those in attendance and as usual made his presence felt.

For the Miami Hurricanes, Paradise Camp is a weekend to showcase the many positives of the program in an atmosphere second to none.
Look at the tight end coaching.

For these recruits to be able to learn from Hurricanes legends and NFL stars in a competitive setting has to be special.
A lot of commits from the 2020 and 2021 classes were in attendance, a great sign as these recruits begin to build early comradery.
Manny Diaz and his coaching staff are truly bringing the swagger back, the amount of hype for this Paradise Camp was impressive.
One player who stood out in particular was 2020 commit Tyler Van Dyke, the 6-foot-4 quarterback out of Suffield Academy in Glastonbury, CT.
Van Dyke showcased his talent in 7-on-7 drills according to reports, and found instant chemistry with star tight end target Darnell Washington out of Las Vegas, NV.
Washington is a five-star prospect with multiple scholarship offers on the table, including SEC powers Alabama and Georgia.
A setting like this definitely won’t hurt Miami’s chances in landing the highly regarded Washington, we will update his status as recruiting continues.
