As we’ve learned in college football, the transfer portal giveth, and the transfer portal taketh away. On Thursday, it was reported by multiple sources that Miami Hurricanes redshirt sophomore quarterback Jarren Williams will be entering his name into the portal. Pat Forde from Sports Illustrated was the first to report the news.

Tim Reynolds from the Associated Press later reported that Williams was working with his attorney, completing the necessary paperwork.

Miami was informed earlier today.
This comes just three days after fellow QB D’Eriq King announced he’d be transferring to Miami. King will receive immediate eligibility to play in 2020.
Williams was named the starting QB for Miami prior to the 2019 season, and ended up starting 10 out of 13 games for the Hurricanes, posing a 4-6 record. For the year, Williams threw for 2,187 yards, 19 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
Along with King, Miami will also have N’Kosi Perry and Tate Martell in the quarterback room, as well as true freshman Tyler Van Dyke.
