Miami junior LB Michael Pinckney (suspension) is set to return for the team's Nov. 24 game against Pittsburgh after missing Saturday's win over Virginia Tech due to a violation of team rules.
Pinckney, one of two Hurricanes to miss Saturday's game due to a rules violation, apologized via social media at halftime of Miami's win over Virginia Tech. Following the game Miami HC Mark Richt said that both the junior linebacker, who leads the team in tackles, and freshman QB Jarren Williams will be available next weekend. Pinckney said that he took a pain medication that he didn't realize was against the rules, and Richt backed up his claim. Nov 17 - 9:06 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Miami junior LB Michael Pinckney is a "very sudden defender."

"He quickly chews up ground in pursuit and sells out to make plays," notes Pauline, who believes that the 6-foot-1, 220-pound Pinckney could be the fastest player in Miami's elite linebacking unit comprised of Pinckney, Shaquille Quarterman and Zach McCloud. Pauline views the junior as a Day 2 prospect in advance of the coming campaign.
