MiamiHerald / They’re homegrown prizes, plucked right from the University of Miami’s backyard and ready to bring the team they adored as children back to the forefront of college football.

One is a former Champagnat Catholic defensive end approaching 6-7, tall enough to bat down plenty of passes and smother plenty of quarterbacks.

Another is a consensus four-star cornerback who played on both sides of the ball at Coral Gables High — and by the way, is cousins with Miami Hurricanes legend and NFL great Frank Gore, who has gained more than 14,000 yards rushing as a pro.

And the third is a cornerback who tallied six interceptions during his senior season at Homestead South Dade High and according to Hurricanes cornerback coach Mike Rumph, “has a big chip on his shoulder’’ because “he doesn’t get the credit’’ he deserves.
