What if you were able to take a Hurricane great and implant him firmly on today’s roster? The University of Miami arguably has some talent in 2022 however the wide receiver position needs a name. Only six wide receivers have been selected in the NFL draft in the past ten years. One name could be the answer to solidify a rather uncertain position group.
The current receiver room is comprised of Key’Shawn Smith, Xavier Restrepo, Frank Ladson, Romello Brinson, Jacolby George, Brashard Smith, Michael Redding III, Isiah Horton and Colby Young. (Click Here for the ’22 WR Position Preview) The University of Miami has had a plethora of talented wide receivers over the years but one player in particular would be the missing piece to the current puzzle.
When you consider the current receiver group you have to feel good in the slot. Restrepo has gained great praise from Coach Cristobal. The first year Hurricane’s head coach called him the most productive so far in camp. You add the speed and talent of Brashard Smith and slot options arise fast but you need a receiver on the outside. You need a playmaker.
“Unquestionably the most productive receiver in camp.” -Coach Cristobal in regards to Xavier Restrepo
