The Miami Hurricanes offered three class of 2021 kids Friday during the Football Hotbed National Middle School Invitational Showcase & Lineman Challenge.
Wide receiver Jacorey Brooks, running back Amari Daniels and offensive lineman Hayden Conner all captured the attention of the Hurricanes coaching staff – as the event was held on the University of Miami campus.
Brooks, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound incoming high school freshman that will be attending Miami Booker T. Washington, said that getting the UM offer means a lot to him at this point.
“It was a great experience,” Brooks began. “I have to thank coach Brandon Odoi and Football Hotbed for the opportunity. I got chill bumps when I was in Coach [Mark] Richt’s office…and getting the offer means everything to me. Now I just have to keep pushing myself to work hard and get better.”
Daniels, a youth league phenom and track star, is set to attend Miami Central – a school that has become known for producing elite level ball carriers. From Devonta Freeman to Joe Yearby and Dalvin Cook to current senior James Cook and now Daniels.
UM was smart to make early in-roads with Conner – a 6-foot-5, 270-pound eighth grader from Katy, Texas. The still-growing big man confirmed that Miami’s offer Friday was his first official college scholarship offer.
