Canes offer new DE prospect

The Hurricanes just offered a defensive end prospect from the Northeast last night. Read on to learn all about him and to see what Miami's chances are at this stage of the game.

Shareef Miller from Washington HS in Philly told Scout that Miami offered him last night.

6-foot-4 and 230 pounds

He put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season at Frankford HS in Philly. He finished the season with 70 tackles and 17 sacks. He transferred to Washington HS for his senior season.

He started collecting major offers early in 2014 from schools like Penn State, Oregon, and Michigan State. He's been to Rutgers and Penn State the most so far and has official visits scheduled to those two schools along with MSU and Arizona State.

Al Golden and Miami's coaches have good ties into that area so it won't surprise me if they're able to get him to take that last visit here. Miami's late to the mix with the offer and getting him on campus first will be their only chance since he's never been here before.

On tape he looks to have good length, a good take-off, and the ability to change directions. When Claude George de-committed from Miami earlier this season I made a comment that I expect UM to try replacing him with a HS kid who can be a hybrid DE/OLB. That's the type of player Miller is. I like him as a prospect but it won't be easy.
