Miami football lands 4-star OT Kai-Leon Herbert

Miami continues to make improvements under head coach Mark Richt.

While defense could potentially be a top 10 defense next season, questions remain about the offense without the leadership of quarterback Brad Kaaya, who declared for the NFL draft.

At the very least, whoever is back there should have plenty of time to throw. “The U” landed a big commit today in Kai-Leon Herbert.

Herbert committed to the Hurricanes on Wednesday night.

Herbert weighs in at a svelte 284-pounds and could compete for a starting job right away, with Miami fairly depleted on the offensive side of the ball. The only proven playmaker returning on offense next season is running back Mark Walton, who will need buffet busters like Herbert to clear the lane for him.

Herbert is ranked as the No. 28 offensive tackle in the country, and the 252nd prospect overall according to 247sports.

Miami currently holds the No. 13 recruiting class in the country, but with time remaining prior to National Signing Day, they could crack the top 10 in final class rankings.
