Five New Roster Additions

The Hurricanes officially added five more players to its 2014 roster today. Read on for the scoop.

While most of the Class of 2014 has been in school working out in recent weeks, some didn't officially start until today. Five of them, to be exact, were officially added to the roster today.

WR David Njoku is a big wide receiver the Miami coaches went hard after at the end of last season. The 6-foot-4 standout from New Jersey has tremendous leaping ability and will be counted upon to make an impact early on -- likely as an H-Back.

TE Chris Herndon -- The Hurricanes started recruiting this Georgia standout during the end of his junior year. He came to camp last summer and was impressive enough that Miami took his commitment. He never looked back, and ended up having a very good senior season for one of the state's premier prep programs. At 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, he'll be counted upon to make a difference as a more traditional tight end.

DT Michael Wyche -- Perhaps the most important player on this list for 2014, this one-time USC commit is a Junior College transfer who will be counted upon to make a difference right away. The Canes were able to get Calvin Heurtelou into school for the spring but Wyche is considered a superior talent. Miami needs all the help it can get on the interior of the defensive line and Wyche will have every opportunity to help.

DT Joe Brown -- A late addition to the 2014 class, Brown played primarily defensive tackle at Paramount High in Los Angeles but said the Canes recruited him as a guard. At 6-foot-4 and 325 pounds, he is listed as a DT on the latest roster update so it'll be interesting to see where he lines up once fall camp starts.

LB Terry McCray -- One of the better linebackers in South Florida last year, McCray brings size and athleticism to the position. He's listed at just 205 pounds (6-foot-3) on the newest roster but he was 215 last summer so he's likely bigger than what he's being listed at. He'll look to contribute, likely on special teams, early on.

The Hurricanes are now waiting on just wide receivers Darrell Langham and Trayone Gray to finish out the 2014 recruiting class.
