Miami Hurricanes to be without leading receiver Xavier Restrepo vs. Texas A&M Aggies 2:05 PM ET David M. HaleESPN Staff Writer Close ACC reporter. Joined ESPN in 2012. Graduate of the University of Delaware. Miami will be without leading receiver Xavier Restrepo when the No. 13 Hurricanes visit No. 24 Texas A&M on Saturday. Restrepo is sidelined indefinitely with a foot injury, though he confirmed to ESPN that he expects to return this season. He leads the No. 13 Hurricanes in targets (12), catches (11) and receiving yards (172) for a team that lost both of its leading receivers from 2021. Restrepo has largely worked in the slot this season, and his absence will likely shine a spotlight on sophomore Brashard Smith , who is second on the team with five catches out of the slot. Editor's Picks 1 Related Restrepo has been a particularly reliable target for QB Tyler Van Dyke , who is also his roommate after they arrived together as part of the 2020 recruiting class. Texas A&M is allowing just 112 passing yards per game and 3.9 yards per attempt through two games this season, both among the best marks in the country.
