Miami Player Profile: Stacy Coley

New, 4 comments

In an effort to keep even the most hardcore Miami fan up to date on their favorite players, SOTU will be running a Player Profile series. In these posts, our writers will profile two players from each position that they think should get more face time. They will recap their previous year, or in some cases, preview what may be to come. That way, when the season get's here, you hopefully will have a new found love for the team on the field.

Stacy Coley

Sophomore - WR - 6'1 180 - Pompano Beach, Fla

Last season Coley contributed a significant amount on both offense and special teams. He compiled 33 receptions for 591 yards and 7 touchdowns. He was also the only FBS player to record a touchdown via receiving, rushing, punt and kickoff return.

The former 4-star prospect was known for his explosiveness coming out of high school, but people were not sure how his game would translate to the next level. Well, it is safe to say that his game has translated just fine.

Watch his exhilarating punt return against Duke last season:

Summary: After watching him run past defensive backs throughout his freshman season, it is not hard to come to the conclusion that he will be a major part of Miami's offensive plans this coming season. The only way I can see his game not improving, would be the lack of production coming from the quarterback position. With the injury to senior quarterback Ryan Williams, there is no clear cut starter for Miami's season opener against Louisville. If for some reason the quarterback can not consistently throw him the ball, Coley will still have special teams to show off his rare explosiveness.
