UM athletics welcomed Adidas to its program with a football uniform unveiling party at LIV on Saturday night that was as Miami as it gets.
Most of the reaction from the fans has been positive, but what about that of the players that will actually be wearing the new uniforms? More specifically, how do the players that pledge to wear them in the future like them?
The consensus is that recruits committed to the Hurricanes approve.
Four-star quarterback commit Jack Allison out of Palmetto expressed a sentiment relayed by most fans.
"I was skeptical at first when I heard they were switching to Adidas, but now after I see the new uniforms I like them a lot," he said.
Here are the views other recruits expressed to me...
-Four-star running back from Coral Gables High Amir Rasul says he's "#inlove" and added "the whole design of the uniform intrigued me."
-Four-star middle linebacker from Orange Park Oakleaf Shaq Quarterman says he especially liked the all-white combination.
-Three-star defensive end from Fort Lauderdale High Jaquwan Nelson: "I love them. It's a really nice look from Adidas. Can't wait to play in them when I get there."
-Three-star defensive end from Columbus Josh Uche: "I liked them. Very simple yet unique."
-Four-star 2017 linebacker Tyler Dunning from St. Thomas Aquinas: "Love 'em. What's not to like?"
-Three-star 2017 Killian running back Bentavious Thompson: "The new Adidas uniforms are fire."
-2018 defensive back Al Blades Jr.: "They're nice. [I like] the pants, helmets and gloves."
Adidas certainly graded highly among UM football recruits. A solid start to the #3stripelife UM will sport for the next 12 years.
