Brandon’s Thoughts: Gabe and I agree that Miranda is a very intriguing prospect. For starters, he is freakishly athletic, especially for his size. Second, he is versatile enough that he can play either tight end or wide receiver from my understanding, he is coming in as a receiver. Lastly, he has tremendous upside.
Miranda is a very studious player, who seems to be consistently working on is craft. That cannot be overlooked.
He will be arriving on campus in January and that will only help him adjust to the collegiate game and give him an added advantage.
Gabe’s Thoughts: Tight ends are hard to get excited about due to the very limited use in the offense, but I think that Miranda is an intriguing prospect. It seems like he has terrific speed and size so it’s encouraging.
He’s an athlete, could probably play some defensive line too, but this is kind of a dart throw because it’s so hard to evaluate his film because of the talent level overseas. You look at the other programs that offered and it seems like those are the ones that are just looking for any sort of wildcard.
The hope is that they get him on campus with no issues, he has a decent technique and can grind at the Power Five level to produce.
