2-way standout is athletic, gets UM offer

This two-way standout only played in six games as a junior last season and didn't put up great numbers. However, he's very talented and extremely athletic. That's why Miami offered him recently. Read on to learn about him as a prospect and to see what Miami's chances are.

"Just received another offer from the U," said Tyrin Summers.

At 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, Summers is a 2016 wide receiver prospect from Clewiston High.

Nike numbers from earlier this year:
4.48/40
4.13/shuttle
40-inch vertical jump
38-foot power toss

Summers was a two-way starter as a sophomore. His junior season was limited to just six games last season. He finished the year with 111 yards rushing. He also took five catches for 165 yards and three scores. On defense, he had six tackles and one interception.

While his production numbers, especially at the small school level, won't blow anyone away, he's a tremendous athlete. He has outstanding speed, quickness, and leaping ability. He's a kid who you can see one day becoming a playmaker at the major college level.

West Virginia, South Carolina, and Oregon State are his other BCS offers right now so he's being recruited like a three star prospect. He's expected to see Miami for a visit this summer, which should give us a much better idea of what he thinks about the Canes. Based on where he's from and the current competition, you have to like Miami's chances.

Summers, who could end up playing cornerback in college, is the second slot receiver Miami has offered in the last week or two with Jessie Britt being the other. They currently have three 2016 WR commitments with only Sam Bruce being under 5-foot-11. It's clear the UM coaches want to add more receivers - both big and small - to what's already a very good class at the position.
