Flowers, 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, has been a tremendous player in Miami's offense since he arrived. He immediately broke into the starting rotation as a true freshman in 2012 when he started the team's first four games at right tackle. He became a full-time starter at left tackle in 2013, when he started all 13 games there. He started all but one game -- missing one due to a knee injury -- in 2014 at left tackle.
Flowers, who is the No. 3 offensive tackle prospect on ESPN's Todd McShay's NFL Draft Board, came to Miami as a four-star recruit. He played his junior season at Dr. Krop High before transferring to Norland High. He was offered a scholarship by the Hurricanes in the spring and later helped the Vikings win a state championship.
