Previously this offseason, Miami released a statement that redshirt junior RB Gus Edwards would be transferring from the program. Today, after weeks of silence on the topic, a report has now put a destination for Edwards’ transfer.
According to Brian Dohn of Scout.com, Edwards will be transferring to Rutgers.
A 3 star recruit from New York, Edwards had a nice, but uneven, career at Miami. He struggled with injuries — he missed the 2015 season with a foot injury — and inconsistent play. The 6’2” 235lb Edwards never ran like the big back he is, preferring a more scatback style, relying on his speed rather than size.
This had been reported already for Miami, so this isn’t a new loss. It does, however, give Edwards a location where he can finish his career as a grad transfer.
For Rutgers, this is a nice get, as Edwards will immediately be one of the most talented athlets on their roster.
For Edwards, this transfer gets him closer to his Staten Island, NY home, and lets him play for a P5 team as a grad transfer.
As I previously did, I wish Gus Edwards the best in his future endeavors.
