UM Recruiting Scoop: 5/16

Read on for all the latest recruiting news and information surrounding the University of Miami, with complete analysis from CanesTime's Mike Bakas.

* Kentavious Street is one of the top overall prospects in the state of North Carolina. At 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, he's a defensive line prospect who was recently offered by Miami. While NC State has the edge right now and he grew up following them, he told Scout that the Canes are now in his top three along with LSU. That indicates serious interest, and it means that he will likely take a visit here at some point in the near future. Street is an elite level prospect and is near the top of the D-Line board now in terms of interest in Miami. He's a player to keep a close eye on.

* Calvin Heurtelou is a Junior College defensive tackle prospect who was offered by Miami earlier this spring. At 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, he projects to play the nose at the college level. Originally from New York, he now has seven scholarship offers. The top competition right now appears to be either Kansas State or Missouri. He named Missouri his top choice recently but also has a lot of interest in K-State and Miami. The Hurricanes appear interested in adding a second Juco defensive tackle to this class and Heurtelou seems to have Miami in his top three or four right now.

* T.J. Harrell says the Hurricanes offered him earlier this week. At 6-feet and 200 pounds, he's a RB/OLB from Tampa Catholic but many project him to play strong safety at the college level. It appears that even with the recent offer Miami may be fighting an uphill battle here. "I've seen all the Florida schools. There's reports going out that I like Florida State and I like USF," Harrell told Scout today. "Well those are the only school that I've seen that have impressed me." That makes it seem like he's been to Miami already and wasn't blown away. There's still a lot of time left but as of now Harrell doesn't seem to have a whole lot of interest in Miami.

* Jay Tabor is one of the top cornerback prospects in the entire nation. At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, the Washington DC standout landed a very early offer from the Hurricanes and expressed some early interest. Unfortunately for the Canes, he listed a top eight to Scout today and Miami was not on it. It looks like this one is shaping up to be a longshot for the Hurricanes.
