The Miami Hurricanes have been making waves for years and it appears as if that has paid off for Miami.
The Hurricanes have gone on to have three consecutive winning seasons and won their last four ACC titles in 2017.
The team is currently ranked number one in the nation, with 247Sports listing them as the No. 1 team in the country.
With the recruiting class currently in place, here are some of the top recruits the Hurricanes have landed over the years.
#1, Jalen Hurd: Rivals #2, Marques Harris: Rivals.com #3, Chris Walker: Rivals 3/20/18: Miami, Fla.
ESPN/ESPNU Top 25: Jalen Harris: 247Sports, Rivals #6, Anthony Jones: 247sports, Rivals 4/14/18, Chris Mullins: Rivals 4: Jalens Hurd, Chris Mays and Anthony Jones are three of the nation’s top prospects for Florida.
They are ranked the No 3, 6 and 8 overall recruits in the 2017 class, respectively.
#2 and 3 are the top four recruits in this class.
#3 and 4 are the three best rated recruits in their respective classes.
#4 and 5 are the No 5 and 6 prospects in the 2018 class.
Hurd is one of the best perimeter prospects in this year’s class.
He has a 6-foot-8 wingspan, a solid handle and a big body that should allow him to stretch the floor.
His athleticism will allow him the ability to guard multiple positions.
#6 is a combo guard, with a 7-foot wingspan and an impressive 10-foot standing reach.
He is an excellent athlete with great strength and athleticism that can create separation with his feet.
He also has good vision and passing ability.
He averaged 19.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game last season, making him a potential top 10 pick.
#7 is a point guard, and is ranked the fifth best in this draft class.
His size and athleticism are complemented by his defensive game.
He can defend multiple positions on the court, and he has great lateral quickness and a high basketball IQ.
He will likely have a difficult time guarding big men on the perimeter, but he is a good athlete who has shown good lateral quicknesses and good vision on the defensive end.
#8 is a small forward, with the ability and versatility to guard all five positions on offense.
He showed great potential last season.
He played both center and power forward in college, and will need to improve his rebounding and shot-blocking skills to make the transition to the next level.
#9 is a center.
He plays the position, and has shown some potential to develop into a quality player.
He made an impact in the Florida lineup last season as a freshman, scoring 11 points per game.
His offensive upside is immense.
#10 is a guard.
He does a lot of things well.
He shoots well, he moves well, and his passing is solid.
He scored well in the tournament, averaging 12.6 points per 40 minutes and showing good potential to improve.
#11 is a power forward.
He averages 5.8 rebounds per game and is capable of guarding multiple positions, though he needs to improve on his defensive abilities and the lack of experience he has had with the program.
#12 is a shooting guard.
His shot-making ability will be a major concern for the team as they need him to defend all five different positions.
He needs to work on his shooting stroke, but should be able to find his shooting touch on the offensive end.#13 is a forward.
This is the biggest question mark for the Miami Hurricanes, as they don’t have any real offensive threats on the roster.
This class should help.
If he can play power forward, Hurd can defend all four positions and is an incredible athlete.
His shooting stroke is a little off though, and I’m not sure how well he can defend the post or the 3-point line.
He could be a top 10 selection if he improves his offensive game.
#14 is a wing.
He’s a versatile player who has a lot to offer on both ends of the floor and can guard multiple position.
He should have a very solid offensive game and should be a great asset to any team.
#15 is a smaller forward.
I like his athleticism, but I think his shooting and defense will be his biggest problems.
He doesn’t have a ton of upside, but will need a little bit of work on those two areas.
#16 is a defensive center.
This one’s tough to rank, as I don’t know how he’ll fit in with the offense or defense.
I’m sure he’ll improve as he matures, but there is a lot on his plate right now.
#17 is a big.
He had a breakout year in the ACC, scoring a career high 24 points per contest.
He added 7.5
