Recruiting Update: QB's

Check out the latest update on UM quarterback prospects in this version of a recruiting update.

Please note: The information below was gathered through my personal interviews with the prospects and all opinions are mine, formed through watching them play and talking to them. In no way does it officially represent the University of Miami.

The University of Miami appears to have the philosophy of taking one big-time quarterback in every recruiting class. That'll definitely be the case this year and there appears to be two prime targets.

Kyle Wright (offered) is the only quarterback prospect the Hurricanes have offered up to this point. The talented signal-caller was recently voted the top quarterback among his peers at the Elite 11 Camp in late July. One of the most physically gifted quarterbacks in recent years, Wright seems to have the total package as a prospect. He's a winner, a leader, and someone with high character. Wright recently took unofficial visits to Miami, Florida State, and Tennessee. He'll visit Oklahoma and Texas later this week before returning home to begin preseason practice. "Miami looks like a great situation for me," he said. Personally, I think the Hurricanes are in excellent shape to land this talented youngster. The fact that Tommy Grady wasn't offered during a recent visit coupled with the fact that Wright is so used to winning is a big reason why I feel UM has an excellent chance. Southern Cal is the current co-favorite at this point.

Tommy Grady is another elite quarterback prospect from the state of California. At 6-foot-6, Grady has tremendous arm strength and a quick release. Plus, his accuracy is excellent as he threw for 33 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions as a junior. The talented signal-caller looks very impressive on film and appears to be the No. 2 choice on UM's list behind Wright. Grady recently took unofficial visits to Miami, Florida, and Florida State. "I like Miami because of the opportunity there," he said. Grady will check out LSU and Oklahoma later this week, followed by weekend visits to USC and UCLA before making a final decision that could come as early as Sunday night. Personally, I think Grady will end up signing with another school.

The possibility exists that the Hurricanes could see both of these top flight quarterbacks signing with other programs, but I don't think that's too likely or else Grady would have been offered by now. If it does happen, the Hurricanes would likely skip a quarterback in this year's class since it appears Wright and Grady are the only two prospects at this point.
