"Following consultations with doctors in Miami and in Texas, it was determined that I am no longer able to play football because of my back injury. We have scheduled surgery for December and I am looking forward to getting better. I have decided to remain at the University of Miami to complete my education. I would like to thank Coach Golden for the opportunity to be a part of the Hurricanes football program, the future is bright for this team. Obviously this is a very sad time for me, but I will continue to be a supporter of this team and these coaches; and I will be a Hurricane for life."
Our Take: This is a sad end to what once looked like a promising career. UM has recruited heavily at the QB position, and still has a veteran in Ryan Williams, freshman Kevin Olsen, and 2 promising 2014 recruits in Bray Kaaya and Malik Rosier verbally committed. Not to mention fellow classmate Gray Crow, who was ahead of him on the depth chart. So from a football standpoint, this is not a huge loss. Nonetheless this is a sad way to see a kid hang them up and we wish Preston the best of luck. His statement this morning shows the young man is a class act.
