Welcome To The U, Quincy Roche

Miami lands an elite defensive end from the transfer portal

NCAA Football: Temple at South Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Hurricanes have struck gold once again from the transfer portal, adding elite defensive end Quincy Roche from Temple. The announcement came an hour after D’Eriq King said he’d be coming to Miami.

First thought to transfer to UNC, developments with Miami began last week, when it was announced that Roche was scheduled to visit UM that weekend.

Roche was the 2019 American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year, after he had an incredible season with 13 sacks, 19 TFLs, 49 tackles and two forced fumbles. He’s second in Temple history with 26 career sacks, and he’s also totaled 39.5 TFLs in three years. The 6-4 235 pound Roche has drawn comparisons to Khalil Mack, thanks to his speed to go along with his tremendous pass rushing abilities.

With the addition of Roche, the Canes now have one of the best defensive end duos in college football, teaming up with Gregory Rousseau.
