Friday, the good momentum continued on the recruiting trail for the Miami Hurricanes. 2022 four-star cornerback Trequon Fegans committed to Miami.
Feagans the 11th overall corner in his class, and the fourth overall player in his class from the state of Alabama per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He was recruited by Demarcus Van Dyke and Travaris Robinson. Van Dyke has been on a roll in recruiting over the past couple of weeks, and this was another big get for him and the rest of the staff.
Feagans also had offers on the table from South Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia. Most recently, he took an official visit to South Carolina on June 18. Luckily, Miami was able to snag him.
What can he bring to Miami Hurricanes?
This is a huge get for Miami. Measuring in at six-foot-two, he brings another lengthy corner to the position. In terms of what he brings on the field, he is a very solid cover corner. In addition, he has very good vision. As soon as the play develops, he is able to track where the ball is with relative ease. The combination of those two things could give Miami the ability to take away one side of the field defensively.
In the passing game, he matches up well with outside wide receivers. As soon as the ball is snapped, he stays stride-for-stride with his man, and is able to find the ball and make a play. He has versatility in the sense that he can come down and defend the run as well as the pass. Those instincts that he has in the passing game translate well to the running game.
Miami has a solid group of corners for the 2022 class. This class is absolutely stacked. In past years, corner was a position that got ignored in recruiting. That is not the case with the 2022 class. Now, the trick is going to be development. Can Miami get the job done in that area? Only time will tell.
With this commitment, the Hurricanes class ranks 58th overall nationally and 12th in the ACC per the 247sports Team Rankings. This class is getting deeper by the day.
The Miami Hurricanes now have an embarrassment of riches in the secondary. It will be intriguing to see how much of an impact Feagans makes. He could be a staple of Miami’s future defense in the coming years.
