‘It’s home’: Top prospects dish on Hurricanes at Miami Under Armour camp


MIAMI — Chris Ewald Jr. has been a star on state title teams at Chaminade-Madonna, but he earned an individual honor on Sunday afternoon.

The four-star prospect was one of more than 200 high school prospects to suit up for Under Armour’s Next Football Camp series at Miami’s Ives Estates Park, but he was one of two who earned invitations to the 2025 Under Armour All-American Game.

“It feels good knowing that all the work I’ve put in is somewhat showing itself and it’s going to continue to show itself,” Ewald said.

Ewald, a standout cornerback for the Lions, is listed as the No. 13 cornerback in the nation, backed off his commitment to Michigan in January, and now he is open to numerous other schools, including the Hurricanes. Chaminade-Madonna has sent several players to Miami in recent years. Last year, wide receiver Joshisa “JoJo” Trader and safety Zaquan Patterson.

Ewald said he plans to visit Miami and LSU in the next week to check out their spring practices. He also said Auburn, Louisville and Tennessee appeal to him.

Ewald said his relationship with Cristobal draws him to Miami, and he has spoken to new Miami defensive backs coach Chevis Jackson.

“He’s good. He’s a technician,” Ewald said. “I’m still getting to know him … but from what I’ve seen so far, he’s a good coach.”

“I like the weather, and I like the way they coach us,” Boucard said.
