With a four-game losing streak and the departure of defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, Miami has suffered a flood of de-commitments in recent weeks.

The Hurricanes have slipped to No. 34 nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite, with 14 verbal commitments. But conversely, Miami’s 15 de-commits who would be ranked the No. 32 class, as of Sunday night, according to analysis from SB Nation’s Alex Kirshner.

Some of the notable departures were 4-star LB Anthony Solomon, 5-star CB Akeem Dent, 4-star Dunbar DE Derick Hunter and 4-star OT Michael Tarquin.

Much of this speaks to a loss of momentum for coach Mark Richt and the program since it was a national sensation a year ago with the turnover chain, 10 wins, and the No. 8 recruiting class.

Interestingly, it’s been a volatile week on both side’s of the recruitment of 3-star OLB Samuel Brooks. He decommitted Dec. 12 and recommitted to the Canes three days later.

There are still a few of days remaining in this early signing day cycle for this class. Miami hasa decent shot at several blue chip players, including the No. 1 receiver in the class, former Georgia commit Jadon Haselwood.

While the national view may be down, Richt and the program should have as much talent as much of the ACC, especially against its Coastal Division rivals.
