Miami will host Alabama transfer offensive lineman Javion Cohen on a recruiting visit this weekend.

Cohen announced that news on Thursday:

Cohen has quickly become one of Miami’s top targets in the transfer portal. He was Alabama’s starting right guard for most of the past two seasons. He could make an immediate impact on the Canes’ offensive line in 2023.

According to Pro Football Focus, Cohen has not allowed a sack during his collegiate career at Alabama.

Miami has been trending up in Cohen’s recruitment in recent days. It’s possible the Canes could earn his commitment as early as this weekend.

Miami is expected to be aggressive in adding talent via the transfer portal this offseason. The Canes have already lost more than a dozen players to the portal as well as several more to graduation and the NFL Draft.

The Hurricanes will also have offensive line reinforcements via the class of 2023. The Hurricanes have commitments from a pair of 5-star OL prospects in their incoming recruiting class: Francis Mauigoa and Samson Okunlola.
