Hurricanes continue to make progress in transfer market while awaiting QB decisions - Miami Herald

“As Miami awaits decisions from its potential 2019 quarterback (Jalen Hurts) and its potential 2020 quarterback (Tate Martell), the Canes continue to make more headway in the transfer department.

UM tells us that Tommy Kennedy, the Butler transfer who is expected to be the starting left tackle next season, has now enrolled. So he will get the experience of going through spring ball and joins five other early enrollees.

New Hurricanes OC Dan Enos says offense will ‘look complex and remain simple’ while showcasing playmakers - Sun Sentinel

“Miami averaged just 358.8 yards per game, which ranked 105th among 130 FBS programs nationally, and only 5.59 yards per play, which ranked 75th.

On Monday, new Hurricanes offensive coordinator Dan Enos — who spent last season as an associate head coach and quarterbacks coach at Alabama — addressed how he planned to fix that during a radio appearance on 560 WQAM.”

Welcome BACK to the U, Jeff Thomas...AGAIN! - State of the U

“This is a stunning reversal, kind of like the ones Thomas made when returning punts in 2017. After being dismissed/leaving the team in November, Thomas decided to look around and settled on Illinois for his next destination. Thomas reportedly signed a non-biding grant-in-aid agreement, but that obviously didn’t mean he had to leave.”

Ranking 2019’s Grad Transfer QBs - State of the U

“There’s no doubting that Coach Manny Diaz has dipped his toe into the grad transfer waters when it comes to looking for Miami’s next QB. While that decision may come with some potential collateral damage, Jarren Williams already nearly transferred once, Diaz may be ready to hand the reigns to someone else based on what he has seen thus far as the defensive coordinator.”

ACC Basketball Power Rankings: 1/15 - State of the U

“13. Miami Hurricanes (LW: 14) 9-7 (1-3)

Last Week: L @ FSU 62-68, W vs WF 79-65; Next Week: vs UNC 1/19

Number of the week: 6 - double-doubles for Ebuka Izundu. The senior center has picked up the slack for Dewan Hernandez, who is still trying to work his way back into eligibility after another NCAA ruling did not go in his favor.”

Miami Hurricanes 2018 Season Review: CB Postion Recap - State of the U

“In the 2018 regular season, the Miami Hurricanes were one of the top defenses in college football. Allowing just 268 yards and 18 points per game, the Hurricanes ranked in the top five for a majority of major statistical categories. While all parts of the defense played a role in the elite Miami Hurricanes defense, a huge impact was done by the cornerbacks.”

Miami Hurricanes vs FIU Panthers 2019 game to be played at Marlins Park - State of the U

“Miami had previously detailed in the agreement with FIU that the game, for which FIU will be the host team, be played at a stadium larger than the one on FIU’s campus. With both schools being local to SoFLA, this isn’t like Miami going to Appalachian State or Toledo; the CITY is gonna come out for this game and a 22,000 seat stadium wouldn’t be big enough.”
