Miami flips 4-star running back from Ohio State in class of 2024
Miami added a massive piece to its 2024 recruiting class on Monday night.
The Hurricanes flipped 4-star running back Jordan Lyle away from Ohio State. Lyle is a Fort Lauderdale native who had been committed to Ohio State since the spring. He’s one of the top running backs in this class.
Lyle shared his decision with On3’s Hayes Fawcett:

Lyle is the No. 158 overall player and the No. 11 running back in the country for the class of 2024, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 20 player from the state of Florida.
Lyle attends St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale. He’s listed at 6-foot, 180 pounds.
This is the second straight cycle that Miami has flipped a running back commitment from Ohio State. In the class of 2023, Mark Fletcher Jr. backed off of his pledge to the Buckeyes and ended up signing with Miami about a month later. Fletcher rushed for 512 yards and 5 touchdowns during his true freshman season.
Miami is now up to 27 commits in the class of 2024. The Canes’ class ranks No. 7 nationally, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
Here are some highlights from Lyle’s senior season:
