The Miami Hurricanes made the final four for 2023 offensive tackle Olaus Alinen on Friday afternoon.

Alinen is a four-star recruit. He is the 14th overall tackle in the 2023 class, and the top player the state of Connecticut per the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. Miami is part of a top four that includes Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State.

Alinen moved from Finland to the United States for his junior high school season.

What could he bring to the Miami Hurricanes?

He is very quick as soon as the ball is snapped. He is able to extend his hands quickly, and that allows him to engage in blocks quickly. Alinen can play either the right or left tackle positions, and that could be a plus for the Miami Hurricanes offensive line.

Measuring in at six-foot-six, 315 pounds, he is a very sturdy lineman. Particularly in the red zone, his size allows him to create space quickly and give running backs extra yards to the end zone. He is a sturdy lineman, who is able to push his matchups around with ease.

Alinen could also have a chance to work with Alex Mirabal if he were to commit to Miami. This would undoubtedly help with this development given Mirabal’s track record of producing and developing talented lineman.

Currently, the 2023 Miami Hurricanes recruiting class ranks 19th overall nationally. They rank third overall in ACC per the 247Sports Team rankings. This class has the potential to be filled with talent. The Miami Hurricanes coaching staff will get their first full crack at a recruiting class.

The expectations for this 2023 class are extremely high. With Alinen placing the Miami Hurricanes in his top four, that gets them that much closer to landing a premium offensive lineman. He has to make his final decision of course, but the Miami hurricanes are in a good position to land him.
