As the hype continues to build around the 2021 Miami Hurricanes football season, that was reflected in a preseason poll on Tuesday. The Hurricanes were ranked 16th the in the country in the USA Today Coaches Poll. They finished the 2020 season 22nd overall.
Several of Miami’s opponents were also in the polls. If anything, that just reflects the difficult schedule Miami has ahead of them. Alabama was ranked as the top team, while North Carolina was ranked ninth overall.
Miami Hurricanes deep on both sides of the football
The Miami Hurricanes return a deep group offensively , led by quarterback D’Eriq King. A loaded wide receiver group led by Mike Harley and Charleston Rambo should help Miami put together a strong season offensively.
A deep safety group highlighted by Bubba Bolden will be one to watch this season. With key returners on both sides of the football, the Miami Hurricanes look to make some noise in the ACC.
They will be tested immediately as they face a talented Alabama team in the opening week of the season. the Alabama Crimson times lost several starters to the NFL draft last season. Even still, quarterback Bryce Young and wide receiver John Metchie III should provide a challenge to the Miami secondary.
,in any event, Miami has the talent to increase that ranking. The Hurricanes just need to execute. That was a problem last season. Hopefully, they will have ironed things out for 2021. In what is a year filled with high expectations, the Miami Hurricanes have a chance to put themselves firmly back in the national spotlight.
