Saturday night the Miami Hurricanes had their first fall scrimmage. Unfortunate buzz came from camp in the form of injury news and freshman TreVonte Citizen suffered an injury what Coach Cristobal considered significant.
“Two players that sustained injuries in the scrimmage were freshman RB TreVonte’ Citizen and freshman WR Isaiah Horton – (Horton) probably a three to four day injury for him to come back. TreVonte’ is a little more significant and we’re continuing to assess and evaluate.” -Coach Mario Cristobal
Coach Cristobal also commented on Zion Nelson, Will Mallory and Jared Harrison-Hunte, who also got nicked up in scrimmage, about availability. All are set to return soon baring any set backs. Nelson will definitely solidify the trenches on the offensive side of the ball.
“Going top to bottom I’d say both sides of the trenches did a good job taking care of business at the line of scrimmage, a back and forth matchup. Early in the scrimmage it was the offense, as the scrimmage went on the defense did a really good job of forcing three-and-outs, coming up with big plays.” – Coach Mario Cristobal
UCLA transfer Caleb Johnson also received praise from the head guy this week and is poising himself to see a major role in Kevin Steele’s defense this fall.
“Caleb is explosive, athletic. Really fast, has natural rush ability and experience. Caleb’s had a really good camp-I had experience against him at Oregon when he was at UCLA. He’s a really good player. He’s in a position room where guys are playing really good football.”
