Mikeska caught 24 passes for 229 yards and four touchdowns in 2021 for an 11-3 Bridgeland High School squad which reached the Class 6A regional final.
The Miami Hurricanes picked up their seventh commitment — and second at tight end — in the 2023 recruiting class Sunday night when Reid Mikeska, a 6-5, 233-pound three-star former Clemson pledge, announced his intentions to play for Miami over Oklahoma.
The Cypress, Texas native, who ranks as the No. 29 tight end in the country according to the 247Sports Composite and the 529th player regardless of position, canceled a visit to Florida this past weekend following his trip to Coral Gables on June 10. He caught 24 passes for 229 yards and four touchdowns in 2021 for an 11-3 Bridgeland High School squad that reached the Class 6A regional final.
“I had an amazing visit to Miami,” Mikeska told The Athletic this past week. “I really enjoyed it. I really like the coaching staff and the location. Just the fact it’s Tight End U is really appealing. Had a really good time. Coach Cristobal is probably the most impressive head coach I’ve spoken to. I’m also a big fan of (tight ends coach Stephen) Field and (analyst Cody) Woodiel. Coach Field was the first coach to call me when I committed to Clemson. They stayed on me.”
The Hurricanes picked up a commitment last Tuesday from Jackson Carver, a 2023 three-star tight end from Minneapolis who is a former hockey and lacrosse standout. Carver is rated the No. 25 tight end in the country in the 247Sports Composite.Miami lands 2023 3-star tight end Reid Mikeska - The Athletic View Story
