Intriguing athlete commits to Cats

The 6-3, 230-pound Miranda plays for the Berlin Rebels in Germany and is considered one of the top recruits in Europe.

“Maybe the most physically gifted kid I have ever seen in Europe,” tweeted Brandon Collier, a former NFL player who runs PPIRecruits, PPI is a recruiting database for International American Football Players.

“This kid is the best athlete I have seen that’s over 200lbs,” Collier wrote in a separate tweet. “He is a Freak! Arizona could be a great fit for this kid.”


Miranda plays QB, WR and TE but projects as a big receiver or pass catching TE. He was clocked at 4.65 in the 40 at a camp at Ohio State over the summer. Trying to get exposure he attended camps all over the United States this summer and garnered a number of offers, including Cincinnati, Georgia Tech and UConn.

He has a track and field background and has only been playing football for a few seasons. He is a consensus 3-star prospect and 247Sports lists him as the No. 1,147 best player in the 2020 class. 

Miranda visited Arizona over the weekend and is the second player to commit this week joining Louisiana linebacker Jabar Triplett.

Big kid, athletic, I think, and fast, but looks like he is playing against a bunch that haven't played much football.
