Miami coach Mark Richt makes an impression in recruiting

The Evidence is in. And others, too.

In all, it was a solid recruiting day for the University of Miami, which rose to 11th in the 247sports.com rankings.

Among the signings was Evidence Njoku, the younger brother of NFL-bound David Nkoju. He will be joined at the U by quarterback N’Kosi Perry, who might be the team’s quarterback of the future with the departure of Brad Kaaya. In his last two seasons at Ocala Vanguard High school, Perry threw for 56 touchdowns with only six interceptions.

Coach Mark Richt always recruited well while he was at Georgia. Evidently, he’s off to a good start again.
