Eight freshmen to report Wednesday

Eight incoming freshmen are expected to report to the University of Miami this Wednesday. Classes start next Monday. CanesTime takes a closer look at the eight.

Below is a list of players the Hurricanes expect to join the team later this week.

Joseph Yearby -- A five-star running back prospect from Miami Central, the one-time Florida State commitment injured his leg late in the season. He's expected to be 100-percent in time for spring football.

Brandon Powell -- One of the most explosive players in South Florida this year, the Deerfield Beach High standout is a one-time Tennessee commitment. He's expected to get a look at both running back and wide receiver.

Braxton Berrios -- One of the top wide receiver prospects in North Carolina this year, Berrios is a pure slot receiver who also spent time at quarterback and running back throughout his prep career.

Trevor Darling -- One of the state's premier offensive line prospects, Darling played mostly tackle for the state champion Miami Central Rockets. He played some at guard at the Under Armour All-American Game. He's been committed to the Canes longer than any other player in this year's class.

K.C. McDermott -- The younger brother of center Shane, Kc is widely considered the state's top offensive line prospect this year. The Palm Beach Central standout has been committed for several months now.

Calvin Heurtelou -- The Hurricanes need immediate help along the interior of the defensive line, and they're hoping Heurtelou provides some. At 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, he picked Miami over Tennessee, Rutgers, and Missouri.

Trent Harris -- At 6-foot-2, Harris is one of the most explosive pass rushers in the state this year. He could be a 4-3 defensive end or an OLB in a 3-4 alignment. He's similar to Tyriq McCord.

Juwon Young -- One of the top linebackers from the state of Georgia, assistant coach Micheal Barrow was able to pluck him away from SEC country. Young has all the tools to play right away next season.

Note: "That number could increase but it's awesome those guys will be able to join us," Golden said Monday.
