The Miami Hurricanes were able to get a commitment on Saturday as 2023 wide receiver Andy Jean committed to the Hurricanes.
Jean is from Northwestern High School. A three-star recruit, Jean is the 53rd overall wide receiver in the 2023 class, and the 71st overall player in the class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. However, those initial rankings are a bit deceiving. In terms of a numerical measurement, as Jean is rated as an 88 numerically.
In addition to Miami, he had offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Florida State, and Georgia. However, he chose to call Miami home. Most recently, he was able to get an offer from Michigan on January 27. He was recruited to Miami by wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon
Jean was a very productive wide receiver for Northwestern in 2021. He caught 40 passes for 733 yards and eight touchdowns.

What would he be able to bring to the Miami Hurricanes?
Taking a look at his highlights, I was very impressed by his speed. Jean played very well on the outside, and that was where he was most comfortable. As soon as the ball is snapped, he is able to blow past the defense immediately. He is able to beat defenders with his pure speed and that allows him to be a downfield threat.
Measuring in at six-foot-one, 175 pounds, Jean is the perfect size for an outside receiver. His combination of speed and athleticism will be able to help Miami immediately. When you look at the types of wide receivers that the Hurricanes have wanted to recruit, he certainly fits the bill.
Miami currently has two commitments in the 2023 class. The class itself ranks 46th overall nationally, and seventh overall in the ACC per the 247Sports Team Rankings. Lamar Seymour is the other commitment.
This is another big commitment for the Miami Hurricanes, and Jean gives them another weapon to add to their offense for the future. Offense is the name of the game in college football, and Jean should certainly add an explosive element to the offense.
