WATCH: 5-star Miami RB commit leaps over defender for big gain

Lorenzo Lingard (University HS / Orange City, FL) is going to be an outstanding college football running back some day.

On Friday night, the 6-foot, 190-pound Miami commit put on a display of fireworks and provided a capsule of what is soon to come at the next level. Lingard, a 5-star prospect and the No. 2 player at his position from the 2018 recruiting class, ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns, adding another 42 yards and a score as a pass-catcher.

Among the list of eye-popping plays was this 33-yard pickup (or so) that included an impressive hurdle over a would-be defender:

A U.S. Army All-American, Lingard has been committed to the Hurricanes since Feb. 9 of this year. He picked Miami over 27 other offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, and more.

You can watch the full highlights below:

Needless to say, Lingard will fit right in with the Miami backfield when he arrives to campus next season.
