Breaking: Miami’s Mario Cristobal Confirm Major Boost With The Addition of the Four-Star Talent to Boost Their Roster…

Miami Football Eyeing Four-Star Running Back Shekai Mills-Knight.

The Miami Hurricanes football program is emerging as the favorite to secure a commitment from four-star running back Shekai Mills-Knight for the 2025 class, according to’s National Recruiting Director, Adam Gorney.

Recruitment Update

Gorney’s insights, featured in “Ten predictions after the first official visit weekend of June,” highlight Miami’s strong position in Mills-Knight’s recruitment. Initially, Tennessee was leading before Mills-Knight’s visit to Miami last weekend. Although Alabama, Michigan, and Mississippi are still in the mix, Gorney predicts the battle will come down to Miami and Tennessee.

Miami’s Edge

The hospitality and connection with Miami players significantly impressed Mills-Knight, giving the Hurricanes an edge over Tennessee. Currently, Mills-Knight is ranked as the 29th running back and 11th overall player in Tennessee by Rivals. The 247Sports composite rankings place him as the 437th overall prospect.

Player Profile

Standing at 6’2″ and weighing 210 pounds, Mills-Knight would be a valuable addition to Miami’s 2025 class, complementing RB Girard Pringle Jr., who is already committed. Mills-Knight’s visit to Coral Gables was his only official trip to Miami, while he has made five unofficial visits to Mississippi. Upcoming official visits include Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, and Tennessee, with Alabama and Auburn having previously hosted him unofficially.

Miami’s RB Recruitment Strategy

Under head coach Mario Cristobal, Miami has been heavily recruiting running backs. The Hurricanes signed Mark Fletcher and Chris Johnson in the 2023 class and Jordan Lyle and Chris Wheatley-Humphrey in the 2024 class. They aim to sign two running backs for the 2025 class, including Pringle and potentially Mills-Knight.

Current Roster and Future Prospects

Miami’s current roster includes Damien Martinez, a transfer from Oregon State with two years of eligibility remaining, and Ajay Allen, a redshirt sophomore who transferred from Nebraska. The Hurricanes might face some turnover at the running back position after the 2024 season, making Mills-Knight’s potential addition even more critical.

Miami’s continued efforts in recruiting top running back talent demonstrate their commitment to strengthening the roster and maintaining a competitive edge in college football.
