WR enjoys mid-week visit to Miami

This talented wide receiver prospect took a mid-week visit to Miami, and came away impressed. CanesTime caught up with him to discuss that and more.

Steve Ishmael put his name on the recruiting map last season at North Miami High. He was the county's second-leading receiver in 2012. Now heading into his senior season, Ishmael is getting recruited nationally.

Miami was one of his first scholarship offers, and he took a visit to the school on Thursday.

"It was a great visit," Ishmael said. "I got a chance to watch film with Coach Carroll. We watched a lot of Allen Hurns film from last season. Coach Carroll said I remind him of Hurns."

Ishmael, 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, was able to watch the players workout some too and says he received a tour of the campus from coach Larry Scott. He has built a relationship with Carroll, Scott, and offensive coordinator James Coley.

"They just tell me how the "U" produces NFL players. They said they like my size. They really get players into the NFL. "I love the school, it's a really nice facility."

Ishmael didn't commit on the visit but has the Hurricanes in his top group.

"My list of favorites right now are Illinois, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Miami," he said. "I think Miami is a great, school, I really like them, he said. I just want to see how their education system works and how their practices run."

The talented receiver is now focused on having a strong senior season.

"I just want to continue to work hard and get better everyday. I just want to focus on making first team All-state, first team All-American, and first team All-Dade."
