Canes Offer Handful of Juniors

The Hurricanes just added 24 players in the 2017 class and they're wasting no time chasing after standout 2018 prospects. We've learned of a handful of offers over the last couple days so read on for the latest.

Markese Stepp is a 4-star running back prospect from Cathedral High in Indianapolis. At 6-feet and 210 pounds, Stepp committed to Notre Dame last summer but that hasn't stopped other major programs from chasing after him. His other early offers included Wisconsin, LSU, Michigan, and Georgia. Miami is the latest school on that list, as Stepp says the Hurricanes offered him yesterday.

Stepp isn't the only 2018 running back who was offered by Miami in the last couple days. Camron Davis is a local standout who plays at Carol City High in Miami, and he says the Canes offered him on Monday. At 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, Davis helped the Chiefs win a state title this past season. Now he's getting recruited by a whole bunch of schools. Some of his offers are from Georgia, South Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. 

The Canes landed tight end Brian Polendey from the state of Texas yesterday. They're wasting time chasing after some of the nation's top junior tight end prospects in search of the guys they hope to land at that position this time next year. James Mitchell says the Hurricanes offered him on Tuesday. At 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, Mitchell is a talented pass-catcher from Union High in Big Stone Gap, Va. Some of his other offers are from schools like Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Tennessee.

The Hurricanes needed some fast receivers in their 2017 class and they landed three of them. They're already chasing after a lot more in the 2018 class and the latest speedy receiver to land an offer from the Canes is Anthony Schwartz. At 5-foot-10 and 165 pounds, Schwartz is a very fast junior receiver from American Heritage High in south Florida. He took an unofficial visit to Miami this past weekend and says the Canes offered him at the end of the visit.
