Malik Rosier is set to start at Boston College, but will the Hurricanes use a two-QB system? - Sun Sentinel

“Last week when Richt announced Rosier would start, he also said Perry — who was pulled early after struggling during Miami’s 16-13 loss at Virginia on Oct. 13 — would see some playing time.

Monday, though, the coach was a little bit more non-committal on that topic, though he did say he felt Perry was prepared to play if needed and the situation warranted him entering the game.”

“The Hurricanes are going to face a pro style, multiple tight end and fullback offense not unlike the LSU Tigers. The Eagles have a better quarterback in Anthony Brown and better running back than LSU in AJ Dillon.

Miami Hurricanes Recruiting: DT Braylen Ingraham commits to Alabama over Miami - State of the U

“For months, it seemed as though Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas 4-star DT Braylen Ingraham was a lock to commit to Miami. But, recruiting is a weird world and things change, and such a thing happened on Tuesday night when Ingraham announced his commitment to the Alabama Crimson Tide.”
