Reports have materialized that the Hurricane coaches are confident that Houston Cougar transfer candidate D’Eriq King will sign with the Miami Hurricanes. A premier prize in the portal, this dual threat quarterback will be in the fast lane to become the Hurricane QB1 in 2020.
King was a highly sought after prize across the country. The former Houston signal caller has accounted for nearly 7,000 yards of total offense and has 82 total touchdowns to his credit, including 50 passing and 28 rushing scores. King is the grad-transfer leader that can revolutionize the college landscape.
SMU, under Lashlee in 2019, was ninth in the country averaging 489.9 yards of offense a game and was one of only thirteen schools that averaged over 40 points a game. You add that impressive statistical prowess with a King on the throne? The Hurricane’s offense could reign supreme in 2020.
With a potential crowing on the horizon let’s become a student of the game and get a sneak peak on King’s ability. The matrimony of King’s skill set with new Hurricane offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee’s spread up-tempo offense would birth instant offense.
