May Offer Board: QB's

The Hurricanes signed two quarterbacks in the 2014 class, which means they'll likely sign just one in the 2105 class. They currently have one committed but that's no sure thing. Read on for the latest on that, and what other QB prospects are on Miami's board. We have all the latest here!

Dwayne Lawson -- At 6-foot-5, Lawson is one of the state's most heavily recruited quarterback prospects. He committed to the Hurricanes recently, despite telling Scout a few days earlier that his top list of schools didn't even include the Canes. He isn't real familiar with the school or the area and a lot of other schools are still recruiting him, which means keeping him committed will be a challenge for the Canes. For now, they're clearly the favorite but that could change at any point in the next few months.

Torrance Gibson -- At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Gibson has been the state's most heavily recruited QB prospect this year. He could also be an elite level WR prospect but is set on playing QB in college. He recently cut his list down to 15, and Miami was on it, but told Scout a couple weeks ago that the Canes haven't been staying in touch as much as the other schools, and that he will likely leave the state for college. The Canes unsuccessfully tried keeping 5-star Sony Michel (same school) in South Florida in the 2014 class and it looks like they'll have a hard time keeping Gibson as well.

Kai Locksley -- At 6-foot-4, he's considered the top QB prospect in the state of Maryland. He visited here during the spring and has Miami in his top ten right now. He's close to cutting his list down to five and Miami has a solid chance of making it. However, he named three schools who will definitely make it a few days back and Miami wasn't one of them. The Canes, especially after already having had him on campus, will likely remain on the outside looking in.

Deondre Francois -- A former teammate of UM RB commit Dexter Williams at Olympia High in Orlando, Francois now plays for former FSU QB Chris Weinke at IMG Academy in Bradenton. At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Francois has over 25 scholarship offers and is being recruited nationally. He gave Scout his current top five earlier this week and Miami wasn't on it. Considering he's the same type of QB prospect as Dwayne Lawson, it's unlikely the Canes have much of a chance or will continue to make a strong push for him.

Nick Tiano -- At 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds, he's a gunslinger from the state of Tennessee. Miami was his first BCS offer earlier this spring but things have picked up for him. He told Scout recently that Mississippi State was his favorite.

Christian Alexander -- At 6-foot-3, he's one of the most talented dual threat quarterback prospects in the entire state of Florida. The Lakeland Christian standout was first offered by Miami. USF joined the mix recently but the Canes are still very much in good shape. Keep an eye on Florida, where he's visited a couple times. The Gators still haven't offered yet, though.
