Coach Mario Cristobal once said that a recruiting cycle takes two years, and that Miami needs to keep its talent home. With the class of 2024, this is imperative. According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, there are four 5-stars that hail from South Florida. This is one of the best classes in recent memory for South Florida recruits. The ‘22 and ‘23 classes both had two five-star players, and the ‘20 and ‘19 classes both had zero five-star recruits. With the exception of the loaded ‘21 class that contained five five-stars, this ‘24 class could go down as one of the best South Florida classes in the last six years.
