Saturday, the Miami Hurricanes received a commitment from 2022 edge defender Cyrus Moss.
A four-star recruit, Moss is the sixth overall edge player in the 2022 class, as well as the second overall player in his class from the state of Nevada per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Moss comes to Miami from Bishop Gorman. Miami is no stranger to Bishop Gorman. Former Miami tight end Brevin Jordan played high school football there.
Moss had a bunch of offers on the table. In addition to Miami, he also held offers from Alabama, Clemson, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Texas, and Notre Dame. He had 30 offers in total.

Moss brings defensive versatility to Miami Hurricanes
Measuring in at six-foot-six, 220 pounds, Moss played both the edge defender and outside linebacker at Bishop Gorman. He is very good at disrupting the passing game, as he is able to follow the quarterbacks eyes very well and bat down passes. In addition to his explosiveness, he is also a very patient player. He is not afraid to sit back and let the play develop and then attack before the play develops fully.
Moss will be able to bring a pass-rushing presence to the Miami Hurricanes as well as a player that can disrupt offenses in the backfield. He is the type of player that you could build a defense around. Edge rushers are extremely important. We see in the NFL the premium that is placed on the position itself. The fact that Moss is able to bring that as well as other elements to his game is crucial. Having a good edge defender is important in football these days.
Currently, the 2022 Miami Hurricanes recruiting class ranks 48th nationally and seventh overall in the ACC per the 247Sports Team Rankings. All things considered, Mario Cristobal and his coaching staff have done a nice job of putting their mark on this class. They have managed to keep a lot of the original commitments to the class as well as add their own flair to it. We thought that there may be fireworks this weekend, and there certainly was.
