CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami football sophomore wide receiver Tyre Brady has elected to pursue other college football opportunities.
“I have met with Tyre (Brady) and we both agreed it would be the best decision for him and his future to move on as he is looking for a better opportunity to play,” said head coach Mark Richt. “I wish nothing but the very best for Tyre as he continues to develop as a person and as a student-athlete.”
Brady, who hails from Homestead, Fla., saw action in eight games and made three starts for the Hurricanes this past fall. He finished the year with 112 yards receiving and hauled in one touchdown.
“I appreciate everything the University of Miami has done for my family and I,” Brady said. “I look forward to a fresh start.”
The 6 foot, 3 inch wide receiver arrived in Coral Gables prior to the 2014 season after he starred at South Dade High School. As a senior, Brady led the Buccaneers to the 2013 Class 8A state championship where they defeated Apopka in Orlando.
Our take: Brady had the talent to crack the line-up at WR, but his suspensions at season's end appeared to signal the writing was on the wall. Whether it was more immediate playing time, or hard feelings, this isn't a surprise. We wish the young man well. UM still has returning talent at WR, including Stacy Coley (unless he foregoes) and players like Braxton Berrios and Lawrence Cager. They will however need to add some depth in this year's recruiting class. The 'Canes do have the potential to bring in some headliners at the wide out spot, including super talented verbal commit Sam Bruce. Stay tuned.
