Miami redshirt junior DT Gerald Willis is taking a leave of absence and will not play in 2017.
"Gerald remains part of the Miami family and may take part in designated team activities," said HC Mark Richt in a statement. When asked if Willis was being suspended, a team spokesperson said only that he was "taking a leave of absence." It was a fair question -- Willis was suspended for the season-opener last season and also for the team's Russell Athletic Bowl showdown with West Virginia to close out the campaign. In-between those two suspensions, he recorded 19 tackles (5.5 for loss), 1.5 sacks and two passes defended. He also suffered a knee injury during the season which required surgery. Consider his leave a depth blow for the Hurricanes. Kendrick Norton and RJ McIntosh are Miami's expected starters at defensive tackle, with Anthony Moten and Pat Bethel set to serve as the primary backups. Jul 13 - 9:49 PM
