McCarthy was a four-star prospect coming out of Clearwater Central Catholic. He also took recruiting visits to Ohio State, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, and Indiana. Despite some shoulder issues early in his UM career, he went on to have a very productive one and certainly lived up to his recruiting hype.
Gordon came here as a three-star defensive end prospect from Miami's Norland High. He also took recruiting visits to Florida and South Florida and was a four-star prospect by Scout. While he never lived up to those expectations on the field at UM, he did play some and ended up being one of the top 200 players in that class (if you look at the draft). He's a big upside kid, whose best football should be ahead of him.
Bosher was tabbed as the nation's top kicker out of Jupiter as a senior in high school. He signed with Miami and kicked all four years and even punted for a couple of those. He's one of the best combo guys UM has ever had and was the second kicker drafted this year. He certainly lived up to the recruiting hype.
All three of these players were in Larry Coker's final recruiting class, which ended up producing eight NFL players. Miami ended up having eight players drafted, one behind USC and North Carolina. All eight players were recruited as four or five-star players coming out of high school.
