Miami football: Make “the crib “great again

miami football

As of right now, out of the 22 hard commits for the Miami football recruiting class of 2021, 12 of the recruits are from Miami. In the city of Miami, a lot of kids grow up watching their favorite players, relatives and even friends playing for the University of Miami.

There is a saying going around down there “Make the crib great again,” which was made by an alum. Even current players for all the local recruits to come to play in their own backyard and make Miami, where they’re from, get back to the national stage the program was once at.

I love to see how the Hurricanes have recruited not only in their backyard of Miami but also further up in South Florida to Broward County. But one Miami commit that has really caught my eye is Miami Northwestern High school’s Romello Brinson.

This young man will be a great weapon to Miami’s offense if he sticks with his commitment to the Canes. He is a young receiver who is very developed in his game and explosive, both attributes this team needs in its offense. With his talent, he’ll come in right away and make an impact.

Brinson chose Miami over LSU and Georgia just to name a few. While it may seem like some freshmen need time to catch up to the speed of college football, this young man can get in there early and making a name for himself in the offense.

From watching film, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver has already matched up against some great talent in Miami Central, Bradenton IMG and Palmetto. Not only will he be a huge success for Miami in the recruiting game, but he’ll be a big impact in getting some guys from that Northwestern Bulls team to flip their commitment.

What to look for going forward

I don’t see anything standing in the way from Brinson and his commitment to Miami. The major take away going forward is for the Canes to stay committed to making sure he’s in a Miami Hurricanes uniform this summer. This offense could use some more firepower on the outside at wide receiver, a group that has been led by now veteran Mike Harley.

No doubt the kid will have some pretty talented company in the locker room to show him the ropes but nonetheless I don’t see it being long before he starts to make a name for himself and Miami football fans begin to start cheering for Romello Brinson. I look forward to tracking Brinson throughout the rest of his high school career and leading into college.
