Miami adds speedster WR
The Miami-OH football program received its 13th commitment on Tuesday. James Maye is the newest addition to the class of 2019 — a wide receiver from Charlotte, N.C. (Rocky River).
Maye is the third wide receiver to commit to Miami along with Jack Coldiron (Park Hills, Ky., Covington Catholic) and Nick Mason (Jonesboro, Ga., Mundy’s Mill). He’s also the seventh player to commit to the RedHawks this month.
This receiver is easy to fall in love with when you watch his tape. Maye’s incredibly fast and he thrives in open space. He’s definitely the type of player you just say “give him the ball and watch him go.” At a listed frame of 5-foot-9, 165 pounds, he’s not a big target, but he’s a promising slot receiver and another candidate to field kickoffs and punts.

With 12 offers coming from Power 5 programs, it’s hard to imagine that the No. 5-rated recruit in Michigan will pick a Mid-American Conference school over the others, but we’ll find out more on Saturday, May 5.
