Mark Richt’s first full recruiting class at 2017 was a successful one, bringing in the Hurricanes best class since 2014.

For the past recruiting cycles, Miami was a program that always got off to fast starts in recruiting but never were able to finish strong, dropping out of the top twenty classes.

The 2017 recruiting class however was a little different. In Mark Richt’s first full recruiting class as head coach, the Hurricane finished with a top 15 class.

The Hurricanes newest crop of recruits features ten four-star prospects the most out of any 2017 recruiting class in the ACC. Miami’s 2017 class is headlined by four-star wide receiver Jeff Thomas and four-star offensive tackle Navaughn Donaldson.

Overall, Miami appears to be in good hands under Mark Richt as they already have seven commitments in the 2018 recruiting class.
