As the Hurricanes look to rebuild and strive towards a better 2020 season, adding players from the transfer portal is an option. The offensive line for Miami was without a doubt the unit that struggled the most in 2019, so UM will definitely look for talent and experience within the portal to improve that group.

There are two names that Canes fans need to know, and they are Henry Hattis (Stanford) and T.J. Storment (Colorado State).

Hattis, who has primarily seen playing time at guard, started the first six games of 2019 for the Cardinal before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He also played all 13 games in 2018 as a junior. He’s seen playing time at right tackle as well.

Hattis’ father played baseball for the Hurricanes in the 1970’s, so Miami already has a major connection there. The 6-6 297-pound monster would be a huge addition to the Canes interior on the offensive line, challenging Navuaghn Donaldson and DJ Scaife Jr. for a starting job.

Storment on the other hand, is considered the biggest name in the transfer portal as far as offensive lineman go. He’s played mostly left tackle, and started every game this past year for Colorado State.

With Miami’s struggles this year at left tackle with Zion Nelson, you’d have to think that Storment is near the top of the Hurricanes priority list. Nelson definitely showed slight improvement as the season went on, but adding a player with a couple years of experience would make such a difference for the Miami offense.

According to reports, Miami has reached out to both Hattis and Storment, but as you could guess they aren’t the only school that has done so. Apparently FSU has made contact with both players, among other programs.

With the offensive line being something that held the Canes back in 2019, adding at least one of these guys would be a step in the right direction.
