Players to watch on Miami
Junior OL #64 Jason Fox (6'7 306). Fox is Miami's best offensive player. He is a "Trickett" type offensive lineman. Fox has great feet, moves very well, and has a nasty streak in him. Miami likes to pull Fox in the run game because he is an excellent blocker. He has started 28 games in his career. He graded out 96% by his coaches.
Freshman LB #31 Sean Spence (6' 202). Spence is arguably Miami's top defensive player as a true freshman. He has incredible instincts for a player his age. He graduated from high school early and it has helped him make the transition to college football. Spence had over 150 tackles last season as a high school senior. He's very active and will be around the ball all game long.
