Charleston Rambo is within striking distance of history
Miami receiver Charleston Rambo is nearing a milestone that has stood untouched for nearly a decade.
In his first season with the Hurricanes, Rambo has already gained 1,071 receiving yards this season — just 92 away from setting a new program record for a single campaign.
Allen Hurns is the current record-holder with 1,162 yards. Rambo is already Miami’s first 1,000-yard receiver since Hurns did it back in 2013.
Rambo is also just one reception away from breaking that single-season record, too. Leonard Hankerson’s 72 catches have been the program standard since 2010.
Miami’s receiver alumni is as decorated a group as you’ll find — it includes some of the best receivers who have ever played the game of football. Michael Irvin, Reggie Wayne and Andre Johnson, to name a few.
And Rambo is nearing the top of that mountain. He’ll have a great chance to reset both records on Saturday vs. Duke, who has the ACC’s worst passing defense this year by a wide margin. The Blue Devils give up 304.6 yards per game, with the next-worst ACC Defense yielding 274.6 yards per contest.
Rambo has gained at least 95 yards in each of his last five games.
Charleston Rambo's last 5 games
9 catches for 127 yards

7 catches for 116 yards

Miami is also bowl eligible, so Rambo could add to his numbers again during the postseason. He’s also eligible to return in 2022, which would make Santana Moss’ career receiving yards record of 2,546 theoretically attainable.
Kickoff vs. Duke is at 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
