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.

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.
