    Miami football recruiting update for the week of February 26, 2017. Mark Richt’s Hurricanes have added a 4-star quarterback to their 2018 class.

    The Brad Kaaya era is over at Miami, so now the Hurricanes will have to go in a new direction.

    The future looks bright, though, as Miami landed a commitment from 4-star quarterback Artur Sitkowski on Saturday. Aside from simply filling a need in their 2018 recruiting class, the Hurricanes’ addition of Sitkowski is sweeter due to the fact they beat out both Florida and Florida State for his pledge.

    It came about a week after the ‘Canes picked up a commitment from 4-star running back Camron Davis.

    But in the days leading up to Sitkowski’s commitment, Miami had shifted its focus to the 2019 recruiting class, as Richt and Co. are working hard to rebuild the once-proud program.

    The ‘Canes extended offers to wide receiver Larry Hodges and tight end Isaiah Foskey. The former is a native of Tampa, FL, while Hodges is out of Concord, CA.
