Earlier today, former SOTU contributor Carter Balderson inquired as to why senior LB Charles Perry was no longer on the roster.

After some checking with Miami Athletics, a UM spokesman confirmed to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel that Perry, a senior from Royal Palm Beach HS, is no longer with the program.

A 3-star recruit out of HS, Perry was the first player to commit to Miami’s 2015 recruiting class. Steadfast in his desire to play for the Canes, Perry came to Miami to play for Al Golden, and stuck around to play for Mark Richt, until today.

Perry, who sustained a season-ending injury in 2017, ends his Miami career with 30 tackles, 1 INT, and 1 Forced Fumble in 17 career games on base defense. Perry played in more games, mostly on special teams.

A casualty of chronology, Perry was a backup behind starting LBs Shaq Quarterman, Michael Pinckney, and Zach McCloud over the course of the last 3 years. And, having only played in 4 games this season, Perry could take advantage of the new NCAA redshirt rule to sit out the remainder of this season, and transfer elsewhere as a grad transfer for 2019.

In any event, we thank Charles Perry for his contributions to the Miami Hurricanes Football Program, and wish him the best in all his future endeavors.
