Canes offer 5-star DE prospect

Miami is the latest school to offer a five-star defensive end prospect from the state of Florida. Read on to learn more about him and to see what Miami's chances are.

According to's Corey Bender, the Hurricanes just offered Joshua Kaindoh, a five-star defensive end prospect from IMG Academy in Bradenton.

At 6-foot-6 and 235 pounds, Kaindoh played his first few varsity seasons at Our Lady of Mount Carmel High in Baltimore before moving to Florida prior to this season.

Obviously the first thing that jumps out at you is his size. He's very long and lean and gives opposing tackles problems because of it. He's very athletic for someone his size. He's powerful, explosive, and very disruptive coming off the edge.

One of the nation's most heavily recruited players in the 2017 class. He has offers from schools like Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, Michigan, and Georgia. South Carolina and now Miami have added their names to the mix late this week.

He's never been to Miami before and the Canes are late to the offer party compared to the schools they're competing against so it's tough to tell what their chances are at this stage of the game. He told Scout last week that Ohio State, Penn State, and Maryland were his top three choices. They'll likely get three of his five visits so Miami will be hoping to get one of the remaining two.

The Canes have nine commitments in the 2017 class right now but none of them are defensive ends.
