One of the top overall recruits in the 2023 recruiting class has announced his commitment. 

Five-star cornerback Cormani McClain, who's a top-five player in the class, has officially committed to Miami. 

He's the highest-rated cornerback to commit to Miami in ranking-era history. 

McClain is the top player in his state and the top-rated cornerback in the country, per 247Sports composite rankings

This is a surprise to many since it was expected that he was going to Florida. Heck, all four of the crystal balls on his 247Sports page were pointed in Florida's direction. 

McClain also had interest from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, BYU, and many more. 

He'll now join a Miami program that's looking to get back to its glory days under head coach Mario Cristobal. Cristobal is currently in his first season as the Hurricanes head coach.
