May Recruiting Update: S
Trey Marshall

Posted May 10, 2013


National Signing Day is still 10 months away for the Class of 2014 but there's a lot going on. Read on to see the latest with Miami's recruiting efforts at the cornerback position.

The Hurricanes signed just one safety in last year's recruiting class (4-star Jamal Carter) so they'll likely look to add at least one, if not two, more in the 2014 class.

Trey Marshall is the state's top safety prospect this year based on how schools are recruiting him. At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, the Lake City Columbia standout landed a very early offer from the Hurricanes. However, like most high profile recruits from that area of the state, Miami is likely going to be a longshot. He recently named a list of favorites that didn't even include Miami. Marshall is the only known in-state safety with an offer right now.

Staying in the South, the Canes have also offered Georgia's Cortez McDowell. At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, McDowell is being recruited by just about everyone and didn't grow up a Miami fan. Because of those two things and where he's from, Miami will be fighting an uphill battle here.

Evan Berry is another Georgia safety prospect who has an offer from the Canes. At 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, the 4-star will be tough to get. His brother, NFL safety Eric Berry, played at Tennessee and early indications are that Evan will end up a Volunteer as well.

Two other out-of-state prospects have outstanding offers from the Hurricanes -- Montae Nicholson and Glen Ihenacho. At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Nicholson is one of the top prospects from the state of Pennsylvania. Ihenacho (5-11/180) probably the most early interest in the Canes of the out-of-state safety prospects but it's also worth noting that he's being recruited the least hardest of all of them from a national standpoint.

While all of these prospects seem like longshots for the Hurricanes, look for others to emerge. The lack of early offers could indicate that the Canes only plan on signing one safety in its 2014 class.
