Quietly, the Miami (FL) Hurricanes are making a run at the title of Transfer U this off-season with their recent string of high-caliber commitments that will help the program both immediately and in the future.
First, it was freshman Anthony Mack, who committed to the Hurricanes after one season in the Mountain West with the Wyoming Cowboys. Then, it was Kameron McGusty, who made the move to the state of Florida after two seasons in the Big 12 under Lon Kruger with the Oklahoma Sooners.

Schedules are being released with each passing weekday, and many of them feature early-season tournaments and multi-team events all throughout non-conference play.

We selected the events at random, and have broken some up into two pieces, like the Phil Knight Invitational, since there are two separate brackets.
