Analysis: Sony Michel put his name on the recruiting map with a strong season in 2009 -- as just an 8th grader at American Heritage High. Then, as a freshman in 2010, he started being talked about as an elite running back prospect. By the time his sophomore season started in 2011, he was a national recruit. Unfortunately, a knee injury ended his sophomore season very early. He's full recovered, though, and is ready to make his return this fall. At 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, he has a tremendous combination of size, speed, and instincts. He's widely considered the state's top overall prospect right now. Michel already has an offer from the Canes and he grew up following them. He'll be a major priority in the 2014 class at the running back spot and Miami's definitely in good shape at this state of the process.
