With only six weeks to recruit and a limited number of scholarships to dole out head coach Al Golden has done a solid, though not spectacular, job at putting together his first recruiting class. The group is led by two five-star (as rated by Scout.com, anyway) defensive ends: Anthony Chickillo (a third generation Miami player) and Jalen Grimble (who surprisingly switched his commitment at the last minute from USC). Though, not a single quarterback is included, but four-star recruit Jacoby Brissett is said to be leaning towards UM.
Grimble and Chickillo will be huge additions to the 'Canes historically elite D-Line. Grimble is rated the seventh best defensive tackle in the class, while Chickillo is rated the third best defensive end. Four-star linebacker Denzel Perryman rounds out the recruiting star power for the D. Though 'Canes fans aren't nearly as concerned about the defense as they are the offense.
