The good recruiting momentum continued for the Miami Hurricanes on Wednesday, as they were able to land a commitment from three-star offensive lineman Falentha “Flip” Carswell.
Carswell is the 64th overall offensive tackle in his class, and the 72nd overall player in his class from the state of Georgia pe the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He is ranked numerically as an 87.
In addition to Miami, he also had offers from Georgia State, Georgia Tech, NC State, and Ole Miss on the table. He was recruited by Garin Justice. It is worth noting that Justice has brought in players such as Laurence Seymour, Michael McLaughlin, and Ryan Rodriguez. The offensive line coach has done a nice job at recruiting his position, and bringing stellar talent to Coral Gables.
Carswell visited Miami on June 11.

What can he bring to Miami Hurricanes?
What can he bring to the Miami Hurricanes? For one, he can bring size. He measures in at six-foot-seven, 275 pounds. That size will be important for Miami’s offensive line. Size is prominent throughout college football. The most successful teams, and the ones who make it to the College Football Playoff all have size. The Hurricanes certainly got that with Carswell’s commitment.
The Miami Hurricanes have grown their 2022 class in the last couple of weeks, and they are starting to build a nice base of players. They currently have five commitments in the class. The class itself is ranked 75th nationally and 13th overall in the ACC per the 247Sports Team Rankings.
It will be intriguing to see who else Miami picks up in the 2022 class. They are starting to fill some needs, which is important. You have heard me talk about pipelines at certain positions and how Miami needs to start building some.
The offensive line is a position group where Miami could really benefit from establishing continuity and consistency. Getting recruits like Carswell is a start. Hopefully player development and skill will follow the success.
