Yesterday we previewed the projected starters on offense. Click here to see the projected Miami Hurricane two deep on offense. Today we take aim on the defensive side of the ball and formulate a potential Miami Hurricane two deep there. Despite having so many moving parts, the defense has the benefit of using them in multiple fashion.
Kevin Steele has been in the coaching business for 38 years. He is the consummate collegiate war daddy. Steele has been a Broyles Award finalist and coached in SEC country for 13 years. It is safe to say Steele has seen a thing or two in this sport. The Miami defense is set to have a metamorphosis embodied in a Steele cocoon. We now look at a potential two deep rotation on defense.
Defensive End (Strong)
- Akheem Mesidor
- Chantz Williams
Defensive End (Weak)
- Jahfari Harvey
- Mitchell Agude
At the defensive end position new addition and West Virginia transfer Akheem Mesidor has reportedly been moving outside. Lining up over the tight end, the former freshman All-American is a potential powerful punch first then penetrator type. Jahfari Harvey will be pushed by UCLA transfer Mitchell Agude and the wild card is incoming freshman Nyjalik Kelly.
Kelly was the number 119 overall player in the ESPN 300 and makes way from Dillard high school in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Elijah Roberts is another name who can be inserted into the rotation at defensive end. This group has multiplicative avenues and a player like Mesidor can easily slide back inside. The former mountaineer played defensive tackle in a 3-4 scheme last year.
