What can he bring to the Miami Hurricanes?
Wayne will bring a massive boost to the Miami Hurricanes edge-rushing presence. He measures in at six-foot-four, 270 pounds already. He is extremely quick, and is a nightmare for offensive lines to guard. His speed burst is something that is the most noticeable when looking at his highlights. As soon as the ball is snapped, it’s like he is shot out of a cannon. He immediately uses that quickness to wrap up the quarterback.
The edge rusher position is one that has become a stand-alone position. Nowadays, elite programs have a dominant edge rusher. With how offensive- minded the game of football is today, it’s a necessity. Miami wants to take the next step. They got a player that can help them do that.
Edge rusher has been a priority for the Miami Hurricanes. We saw them rectify the problem for this year with a couple of transfers, and a promising recruit in Cyrus Moss. Wayne’s commitment takes it to a whole other level. This is a player that can be a staple of the defense for years to come.
Furthermore, this speaks to the recruiting job that the coaching staff has been able to do. They identified a weakness, and they have filled it. Not only have they filled it, they have landed an impact player.
Miami now has the ninth overall recruiting class in the country per the 247Sports Team Rankings. Wayne gives Miami their third five-star commitment in the class.
