Miami Hurricanes QB Brad Kaaya declares for NFL Draft

Miami’s all-time leading passer is moving on to the NFL.

NCAA Football: Russell Athletic Bowl-West Virginia vs Miami Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

In a move that came days after Miami’s 31-14 win in the Russell Athletic Bowl, junior QB Brad Kaaya has declared for the 2017 NFL draft.

From the Press Release from Miami Athletics:

“While I am looking forward to pursuing my future endeavors, I am going to miss our fans, media, students, administrators, coaches, families, and most importantly my teammates, who were with me through the good times and the tough times,” Kaaya said.

Kaaya leaves Miami as the all-time leader in Passing Yards (9,968), completions (720) and attempts (1,188).

Many NFL analysts have Kaaya projected as a top 2-3 round pick, and that’s what led him to decide to declare for the draft. The 6’4” Los Angeles, CA native will now take his talents to the professional level.

Thank you Brad. Wish you all the best as you move on to the NFL.
