Miami Hurricanes: Jackson Carver brings vertical threat to program

The Miami Hurricanes were able to add to the 2023 recruiting class on Tuesday afternoon. Three-star tight end Jackson Carver committed to the program.

Carver is the 28th overall tight end in the 2023 class, and the third -ranked player in his class from the state of Indiana 247Sports Composite Rankings.


Carver had an extensive offer sheet. In addition to Miami, he also had offers from Auburn, Iowa, Florida State, Michigan State, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. He was recruited to the hurricanes by Stephen Feld.

What could Carver bring to the Miami Hurricanes? He brings all the qualities needed in today’s modern game of college football. He can get down the field quickly, and he has speed to do so. As soon as the ball is snapped, he is able to get out of his break quickly. It’s almost like he is a wide receiver at the tight end position, due to his playmaking ability.

One of the things that stuck out to me when watching his highlights was his speed. Measuring in at six-foot-six, 220 pounds, he has the ability to be a playmaker partly because of it. He is a matchup nightmare for corners, and I can see him really excelling with the types of quarterbacks the Hurricanes are  trying to bring into the program.

Miami Hurricanes are building offensive identity

The Miami Hurricanes are looking for pocket-passers, as evidenced by the types of quarterbacks they have recruited. They want players that can throw the ball down the field and quickly locate their first read. The best programs supply the cornerbacks with weapons that fit their play style. That’s exactly what the Miami Hurricanes are trying to do right now. Now, they just need a stellar influx of quarterbacks in the coming years.

This commitment helps continue to build an already-strong Miami recruiting class. Right now they are ranked 40th in the country. There is a solid base of talent there. Carver is the third overall recruit in the class, based purely off numerical rating.

In any event, this was a big get for the Miami Hurricanes. Carver fits the offensive identity that the program wants to put out moving forward. Perhaps more than that, he is a playmaker that should be able to make an impact, and subsequently become well-known in the ACC.
