More grad transfers involving Miami (Fl)

It seems like every time the boards get updated, the Hurricanes are somehow involved. Today, there's someone coming in and someone going out.

Tito Odenigbo, a defensive lineman, is reportedly joining Miami (FL) after taking a grad transfer from Illinois. The reporting on this one is a little scanty - this is solely based on somewhat vague social media posts Odenigbo has made. However, the move makes sense, so it seems fair to assume that he's committed.

Meanwhile, Darrien Owens, a linebacker, is leaving Miami (FL) to play college football at Houston. He was a solid contributor during his time for the Hurricanes, playing in 39 games. Owens is already enrolled at Houston and will practice with the Cougars this spring.

Busy day for Grad Transfer QBs

Three Power 5 quarterbacks have announced their intention to take graduate transfers for the 2018 season.

Jalan McClendon is leaving North Carolina State after backing up Ryan Finley for the last two seasons. He attempted just three passes in 2017. He'll have one year of eligibility to play college football elsewhere after he graduates in May.

Quinten Dormady, a part time starter for Tennessee last season, is also moving on. He started in five games before ultimately losing the job to Jarrett Guarantano in a lost season for Tennessee. He made 17 appearances in three years for the Volunteers.

And Evan Shirreffs, the backup QB at Miami this year, is taking a grad transfer after he graduates in the spring. He played in three games this year and four in his career. He's the rare three year graduate, meaning he gets two years to play college football at his next school.

And that's now five grad transfers from Miami this season - four leaving and one coming in.

Another Hurricane moving on

Nick Linder, a former starting center for Miami (FL), will play his college football at Indiana next year. Linder sat out the 2017 season, having left the team over the summer. That said, he played as a true freshman and appeared in 26 games over his career with the Canes, meaning he's eligible as a graduate transfer for the Hoosiers. Linder will enroll in the spring at Indiana.

Linder is the third grad transfer away from Miami this week.

Delaney and Klock off the board

Dee Delaney, formerly of The Citadel, is taking a grad transfer to play college football at Miami. Delaney is an FCS All-American and led his conference with six interceptions last season. He has P5 size and is expected to compete for a starting job in the Hurricanes' secondary next year.

Trey Klock, an offensive lineman formerly of Georgia Tech, is using a graduate transfer to move to Northwestern. He made five starts for the Yellow Jackets in 2016 in a season ultimately plagued by injuries. Klock expressed unhappiness in Atlanta, and is moving to Chicago to pursue a business degree. He will have two years of eligibility at Northwestern.

FCS corner considering grad transfer

Dee Delaney, an All-American defensive back from The Citadel, is in flux with his football future at the moment. Back in January, Delaney, who is 6'4" and 200 pounds, said he'd be back for his senior season with the Bulldogs. However, he's now getting interest from a number of FBS schools. He apparently in contact with Miami and will visit the Hurricanes next weekend. It's unclear if Delaney intends to transfer, or if he's just interested in one specific school. He will continue to practice with The Citadel this spring.
