Weekend Visit Breakdown

The Hurricanes are hosting several key recruits for official visits this weekend. Here is the full rundown.

The Hurricanes are scheduled to host eight recruits for official visits this weekend.

RB Joseph Yearby -- The 5-star from Miami Central made an early commitment to Florida State but switched his pledge to Miami soon after James Coley became the offensive coordinator here. He's been solidly committed ever since, and there's no indication that he has serious interest in Florida State or any other school right now. He will start school in January.

RB Dalvin Cook -- A one-time Clemson commitment, Cook committed to Florida several months ago but has taken official visits to Texas, Florida State, and Arkansas. He plans to stay in-state for college. Miami actually offered Cook before Yearby, so they've been recruiting him for a long time. He plans to enroll early, and so he'll likely make a decision in the very near future. Florida State, not Florida, seems like Miami's top competition right now.

WR Johnnie Dixon -- One of the state's most explosive wide receiver prospects, the Dwyer High standout has taken official visits to Ohio State, Alabama, NC State, and Arkansas. He's cut his list down to Miami, Alabama, and Ohio State but the Bama coaches have moved on. It's a two-team race between the Buckeyes and Canes. He is set to announce his final choice Sunday night at 7 pm. He will enroll early with the school he signs with.

TE Ryheem Lockley -- A member of Miami's Class of 2013, Lockley wasn't able to qualify this past season and went to Fork Union Academy for a semester instead. He says he's on track to finish his necessary course work there, and is expected to enroll at Miami next month. The Canes never stopped recruiting him. He played a number of position as a prep standout in Virginia but projects as a pass-catching tight end at Miami.

OL Trevor Darling -- A massive offensive tackle prospect, Darling was Miami's earliest commitment. He's been committed to the Canes for 20 months now. He's never seriously considered any other schools. Al Golden made an in-home visit with him earlier this week, and he's expected to enroll in school next month.

OL K.C. McDermott -- The younger brother of Hurricane center Shane McDermott, Kc is widely considered the state's top offensive line prospect in the 2014 class. He committed to the Hurricanes back in the spring, and never considered anyone else after making that choice. He is on track to enroll early. OL Reilly Gibbons -- A commitment since the spring, Gibbons helped his team reach the state playoffs this year. He played mostly tight end as a junior but switched to the offensive line as a senior. He is being recruited by Miami as a guard. He is a rock solid commitment who is expected to start school in January.

DT Cory Johnson -- At 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, Johnson was first recruited by Golden's staff when they were at Temple. He committed to Golden back in the summer of 2010 but was unable to qualify for the 2011 season. He enrolled into a Junior College in New York, and Miami offered him back in the spring. After the Canes cooled on him a bit over the summer, Johnson committed to Kentucky. Miami's back on him strong again, and there's a good chance he'll commit to the Canes this weekend. He will graduate this month and have three years to play two.

NOTE: Yearby, Cook, Darling, and Dixon won't start their visits until Saturday since their respective high school teams are playing in the state playoffs tonight.
