Searching for a TE, UM offers one in NJ

Miami has the most 2016 commitments in all of college football but they're still seeking their first tight end in that class. They just offered one of the best in New Jersey. Read on to learn about him and to see what Miami's chances are.

"Very Blessed To Say I've Received My 12th Offer From The University Of Miami," said Jovani Haskins, a 2016 tight end prospect from Bergenfield High in New Jersey.

At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Haskins is being recruited like one of the top tight end prospects in the state of New Jersey. Rutgers, Syracuse, Boston College, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech are some of his other offers.

Haskins did a little bit of everything for a team that finished the 2014 season with a 4-6 record. He played some quarterback (1090 yards, 13 TDs, 12 INTs), running back (690 yards and seven scores), tight end (8 for 97) and defensive end (71 tackles, 10 TFL, 2 sacks, and 3 caused fumbles).

He's been to Rutgers a handful of times for unofficial visits already and they were the first school to offer him. Because of those things, they have to be considered the top competition at this stage of the recruiting game.

He plans on taking a visit to Miami sometime this summer. Miami's coaches have good connections in that state, obviously, and he's one of a handful of tight ends across the country who now have Miami offers. Despite having a big 2016 recruiting class already, the Canes do not have any tight ends committed yet.
