Canes offer another 8th grader

Miami has been extremely active in making offers to young players this year. They've even started offering some middle school players. Another one has emerged. Read on to learn about him.

Owen Pappoe is only an 8th grader in Loganville, Georgia but he's already being heavily recruited. Boston College was first when they offered him a few weeks ago. Tennessee quickly followed and then Miami offered him over the weekend. According to Pappoe, the offer came from UM coach Hurlie Brown.

At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, Pappoe plans to attend Grayson High this coming season where he expects to play outside linebacker. He's expected to emerge as one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Georgia over the next few years so it's good to see Miami getting into the mix early on.

The Canes also offered a pair of local 2019 prospects within the last week. One is James Cook -- the brother of FSU RB Dalvin Cook -- and Kenny McIntosh is another.

At 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Cook will play a key role in Miami Central's offensive backfield this fall. Miami was his first offer. At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, McIntosh is a standout wide receiver/defensive back from The University School. Both players have been impressive in various events this spring and are both expected to later become national recruits.
