Good News: Just In Another Top Talented Star Commits To Miami Hurricanes To Active Roster

**Recruiting Sites Analysis Following 3-Star OT Jaden Wilkerson’s Commitment to Miami**

The Miami Hurricanes secured their second offensive line commitment in less than 24 hours with the addition of three-star offensive tackle Jaden Wilkerson.

Wilkerson, who committed on Wednesday night, is the third offensive lineman to join Miami’s 2025 class, following offensive tackle Demetrius Campbell’s commitment on Tuesday and interior lineman Taykaylen Muex. Wilkerson ranks as the 1,230th prospect nationally, 96th among offensive tackles, and 168th in Florida, hailing from Orlando Edgewater. Miami successfully out-recruited Central Florida, Rutgers, and Syracuse to secure his commitment, after hosting him for an official visit on the weekend of May 31, followed by his visits to Syracuse and Rutgers.


Wilkerson is the ninth overall commit and the seventh offensive player in Miami’s 2025 class. His commitment, along with Campbell’s, might signal a surge in commitments for the Hurricanes. Steve Wiltfong of On3 predicted that cornerback Chris Ewald, defensive lineman Derry Norris, Wilkerson, and safety Amari Wallace would all commit to Miami on Wednesday.

Brian Dohn of 247Sports reported that the duo of Miami head coach Mario Cristobal and offensive line coach Alex Mirabal played a significant role in Wilkerson’s decision. Standing at 6’6″ and 330 pounds, Wilkerson has the ideal size for an offensive tackle at the collegiate level, though he will need to lean out in college before making a significant impact. His 82-inch wingspan is ideal for the position, but he will need to develop as a “technically refined blocker,” according to Andrew Ivins of 247Sports.

Wilkerson told Rivals National Recruiting Analyst John Garcia that he had committed to Miami a few weeks prior but kept it under wraps. He mentioned comparisons to Detroit Lions OT and former first-round pick Penei Sewell due to his athleticism and movement. Cristobal and Mirabal, who previously coached Sewell at Oregon, will determine whether Wilkerson plays inside or outside on the offensive line upon his arrival at Miami. Dohn highlighted that Wilkerson’s development was a key focus during his recruitment, suggesting that he could rise in the 2025 class rankings.
