For this 2021 cycle, Miami Columbus edge rusher Jabari Ishmael is the latest example of this trend.

At 6-feet-6 and 230 pounds, Ishmael has the desired measurables to be an impact player after a couple years of development in Miami’s program.

Ishmael’s father, Victor, is a long time strength and conditioning coach for the UM program.

Ishmael rates as a four-star prospect, according to the industry generated 247Sports Composite. He ranks as the No. 240 overall player in the country.

247Sports recruiting analyst Andrew Ivins compares Ishmael to former University of Florida edge rusher Alex McCallister. Here is what Ivins writes in his evaluation of McCallister:

“A lean frame with the ideal length to rush off the edge. Has a terrific reach. Will need to add weight once in college. Most effective in passing situations when he’s able to get outside. Ex-basketball player that’s equipped with a nice swim move, but still learning how to outmaneuver opponents and win with leverage. Looks somewhat comfortable in space as he has gotten snaps at linebacker in high school. Man coverage however isn’t exactly a strength. Tends to play high at times. Could develop into an all-conference type player for a Power 5 school with the right coaching and attitude. NFL ceiling given measurables.”
