Miami Hurricanes land disruptive playmaker in Ahmad Moten

The Miami Hurricanes had a busy National Signing Day on Wednesday. They were able to land to major commitments. One of those commitments was defensive lineman Ahmad Moten.

Moten played football at Cardinal Gibbons High School. he is the brother of former Miami Hurricanes four-star defensive lineman Anthony Moten. The younger Moten is a three-star recruit.

He had offers on the table from the likes of Miami, Iowa State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. Nevertheless, he chose to stay home. He was recruited by defensive line coach Joe Salave’a.

Moten played well for Cardinal Gibbons in 2021. He totaled 29 tackles in two sacks in his senior season.

What is he able to bring to Miami Hurricanes?

Moten has good skills for his position. Measuring in at six-foot-three, 290 pounds, he is able to both rush the passer and stuff the run. One of the things that I noticed immediately about the way he played was that he can move quickly. He is not slow in his movement. As soon the ball is snapped, he fires off the snap and is able to get into the backfield quickly.

Moten’s agility is going to be something that works in the Miami Hurricanes favor. He can shed blocks quickly, and that allows him to be a disruptor. In some of his film that I’ve watched, he didn’t get to the quarterback all the time. However, he was still able to impact the play by using that athleticism to get into the backfield and throw the offenses timing off.

The 2022 Miami Hurricanes recruiting class ranks 14th overall nationally and third in the ACC per the 247Sports Team Rankings. The class itself currently has six players already enrolled in the school.

One of the things that the Miami Hurricanes have done well in this class is getting agile defenders. Moten certainly fits the bill there. Although he doesn’t have the same skill set as a defensive end for instance, he is still able to use his speed to be a disruptive force.

It was an up-and-down day for the Miami Hurricanes, but the commitment of Moten certainly was a positive thing.
