Canes 2016 Recruiting Board: QB

Miami has one of the nation's top-rated recruiting classes for 2016 heading into the summer. CanesTime.com has the latest Recruiting Board. Today we look at the quarterback position.

COMMITTED: Jack Allison

OFFERED: Rex Culpepper, Dwayne Haskins, and Matt Dame

Allison is the only one still being actively recruited by the Hurricanes. All four players were offered by Miami last spring and Allison was the one they wanted most. He committed here last June, and has remained strong with his commitment ever since. If he sticks, he'll likely be the only quarterback in the 2016 class. The Canes will then likely target signing two in the 2017 class, which helps explain why over a dozen in that class have already been offered.

Allison, 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, plays at Palmetto High on the West Coast of Florida. He led his team to a 4-6 record last season and threw for 1,622 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. With offers from schools like Alabama, Tennessee, and Missouri, he's being recruited like one of the top quarterback prospects in the entire South. He's been to Miami at least four times since his commitment here and not anywhere else so his pledge seems rock solid. He's a prototypical gun-slinger who Miami coaches hope will be able to one day replace or even compete with Brad Kaaya.

Culpepper (6-3/225) plays at Plant High in Tampa. He led his team to an 11-2 record last season and threw for 2,016 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. USF, NC State, Virginia, and West Virginia are some of his current offers.

Haskins (6-3/200) plays at The Bullis School near Baltimore. Miami offered him last summer, just a few weeks before getting a commitment from Allison. He now has offers from just about everyone and Miami's no longer in the mix.

Dame (6-2/175) plays at Suncoast HS in West Palm. He was offered last March and has since been offered by Florida A&M and Akron. Since getting Allison, Miami hasn't been actively recruiting him anymore.
