Miami adds four defensive backs in signing class

Miami has added 13 new RedHawks on National Signing Day.

According to, Miami’s class is ranked No. 9 in the Mid-American Conference. Miami’s grade (0.7868) does not include Zedrick Raymond (Mobile, Ala.; Independence CC), the only junior-college transfer to enter the program, and he is not in the website’s database.

Still, there are a handful of three-star prospects by 247sports’ grading system: defensive end Kamron Butler (Alexandria, Ky.; Covington Catholic HS), offensive lineman Bennett Clark (Zionsville, Ind.; Zionsville HS), quarterback A.J. Mayer (Alexandria, Ky.; Covington Catholic HS), offensive lineman Andrew Todd (Cedar Rapids, Iowa; George Washington HS) and defensive back Cecil Singleton (Cincinnati, Ohio; Princeton HS).

Jadon Rucker-Furlow (Dayton, Ohio; Bellmont HS) was the first to submit his letter of intent to play at Miami and is one of the more exciting defensive backs to watch out of this signing class. Blake Underwood (East Lansing, Mich.; East Lansing HS) is another defensive back signed to the program, making it four players added to the RedHawk secondary in this class. Singleton is one guy to watch in terms of potential position changers, since he plays wide receiver well, too.

Below is the list of players who have signed their LOIs with Miami. Links go out to their Hudl (or YouTube) pages, Twitter accounts and the videos below each player come from what the school has tweeted out.
