What may concern you: The Hurricanes need to get faster in the secondary. That's one issue this year's defense had. By landing Gayot, they're not getting a real fast safety prospect. They're getting a bigger, more physical player who would have ideal speed if he were playing as an outside linebacker. The potential problem there is whether his body will be able to handle the added weight necessary to grow into that position. He doesn't have a long frame like a Thurston Armbrister.
Bottom Line: Gayot is one of the top safety prospects in South Florida this year. He committed to Louisville early in the process and Miami never stopped recruiting him. He had other offers from schools like Arkansas and USF so he was recruited like a three-star player. That gives Miami a pair of three-star safety prospects locally. While Ryan Mayes adds some much-needed speed and athleticism, Gayot brings a big, physical safety to the table. Kiy Hester, Sunday night's commitment, is a combination of both.
