As the Miami Hurricanes continue to recruit, Mario Cristobal is in contact frequently with five-star wide receiver Brandon Inniss. This news was first reported by Steve Wilfong of 247Sports.
Inniss is the top wide receiver in the 2023 class, and the third overall player in his class from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Right now, most 247Sports Crystal Balls have him going to Oklahoma.
He is being offered by all of the major schools. Oklahoma, Alabama, Arizona State, Florida State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, and USC are just some of the schools that have extended an offer his way.
Right now, it seems like the Miami Hurricanes have a long shot at landing him. However, in this day and age of recruiting you can never count anything out. The fact that Cristobal is talking to him is encouraging. As we all know, he is one of the best recruiters in the country. Can he work his magic here?
What would he bring to Miami Hurricanes?
Inniss is a very good outside receiver, and he is the quintessential deep threat. He uses his speed to get down the field and make things happen offensively. He measures in add 6 feet, 190 pounds. That may seem a bit small for an outside receiver, but his speed makes up for his lack of height.
It’s very easy to see why Oklahoma is recruiting him. He would fit well in their wide-open offense, and he would be a big-time playmaker. His ability to slip by defensive backs is one of his best assets. Once he gets the ball, he can make things happen after the catch.
It’s going to be fascinating to see where the Miami Hurricanes fall in Inniss’s recruitment. Although he is favorite to go to Oklahoma at the moment, things can change. Cristobal is known for his recruiting prowess. He may have to pull out some stops if he wants to bring Inniss to Miami.
