Miami added a huge piece to its 2024 roster on Saturday evening.

The Hurricanes have picked up a commitment from Vanderbilt transfer safety Savion Riley. That’s according to On3’s Hayes Fawcett, who notes that Riley has three years of eligibility remaining.

Riley is a huge pickup for Miami as the Canes look to rebuild their safety room for next season. Kamren Kinchens and James Williams, who starred at safety for Miami in 2023, have both announced their plans to turn pro.

Riley should have the opportunity to earn a starting job in 2024 this offseason. He was excellent for Vanderbilt this past season, totaling 48 tackles in eight games. The 2023 campaign was the first time Riley saw significant action for the Commodores.

Riley was a 3-star prospect in the class of 2022. A Georgia native, Riley was the No. 92 athlete in the country for that cycle, per 247Sports Composite rankings.

The Hurricanes have now added two defensive transfers to their 2024 signing class. Riley is joined by former NC State defensive lineman CJ Clark.

Miami is now preparing to face Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 28.
