Miami beat writer Peter Ariz reports junior CB Michael Jackson is leaning towards entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

2017 was Jackson's only season as a starter, but like other Miami defenders he definitely took the next step. Thomas recorded four interceptions this season. Declarations aren't official until January.

The Canes have now sealed the deal. 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong writes that Williams "plays with great command, sees the field well, is accurate with the football and has no problem making the throws." Per the outlet's composite rankings, the Lawrenceville, Georgia, native as the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback prospect for the 2018 cycle. Miami currently houses a top-five recruiting class and is up to 21 commits.

Miami senior WR Braxton Berrios hauled in a game-high seven receptions for 51 yards in Saturday's ACC Championship Game against Clemson.

There weren't very many bright spots for the Hurricanes, as they were hammered by the defending champs 38-3. The senior handled himself well back in his home state of North Carolina, posting at least two catches for the sixth consecutive outing. He'll look to wrap up his collegiate career on a high note in the team's bowl game.

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed just 14-of-29 passes for 110 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the ACC Championship Game loss against Clemson.

After rattling off 10 straight wins to start the season, Rosier and the Hurricanes hit a wall. They were stunned in Pittsburgh last week, and now bumped from playoff contention after getting drummed by the defending champs, 38-3. Still, Rosier and the young Hurricanes have a bright future and they'll look to atone in their bowl game, which should still be a pretty good one.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards has been ruled out for the remainder of the year due to a torn meniscus suffered in Wednesday's practice.

Richards was carted off the field during Wednesday's session. Not only has he now been ruled out for the ACC Championship Game against Clemson on Saturday, the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder will not take part in Miami's bowl game -- nor would he be available for a Playoff run should the Canes make it in during Sunday's selection show. An electric athlete when healthy, Richards was dogged by injury throughout the season (most notably in the form of a severe hamstring pull early in the year) and managed just a 24-439-3 receiving line for the campaign. He's a good bet for 1,000 yards if he's right next season, though obviously his recovery from Wednesday's torn meniscus will need to go smoothly.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards was carted off the practice field with an undisclosed injury on Wednesday morning.

Oh no. Per the report, Richards was surrounded by coaches and players while attended to by trainers. His status for Saturday's ACC title game against Clemson is now very much in doubt. Last year, Richards broke Michael Irvin’s freshman school receiving record. This fall, he's been snakebitten by injuries. Most recently, he suffered an elbow injury last Saturday against Pittsburgh. Prior to that, a lingering hamstring injury.

Miami junior RB Mark Walton, who will declare for the NFL Draft, is expected to be healthy in time to participate in the NFL Combine.

Walton went down in early October with a right ankle injury that required surgery. Walton has a chance to land in the top 100 if he has a clean process and his medicals check out.

Miami junior RB Mark Walton will declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.

According to Inside the League's Neil Stratton, Walton has signed with agent Zac Hiller, ending his collegiate eligibility. Walton (5'9/205) will be an interesting evaluation for NFL scouts. The talent is obviously there -- he rushed for 428 yards on 7.6 YPC in four games this season before going down and dropped 1,117 yards and 14 scores on 5.3 YPC last year -- but Walton faces durability questions. He was shut down in early October due to an ankle injury. Last Month, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah wrote that Walton has "outstanding vision, instincts and balance" and is "ultra quick in short areas" in addition to being a "capable receiver out of the backfield." Right now, we'd peg him as a late-Day 2 or early-Day 3 value. That could change for the better or worse depending on his medicals and how he tests out in Indy at the NFL Combine.

Miami senior TE Chris Herndon (MCL) has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Herndon will not be able to play for the rest of the season after tearing his MCL, and had accepted his invitation to the Senior Bowl prior to the injury. His involvement in activities is "TBD" according to the bowl. Even with the injury, Herndon will likely be one of the first tight ends off the board in 2018.

Miami senior TE Chris Herndon will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn MCL that will require surgery.

The injury is to Herndon's left knee. "He’s been a great player and a great leader on and off the field. He’s the kind of person that you love to coach," head coach Mark Richt said. Herndon likely was headed for the Senior Bowl, but this injury could keep him out of the all-star circuit.

Miami HC Mark Richt tweeted support for redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier after Friday's 24-14 loss to Pittsburgh.

Rosier was benched at one point in the loss to the Panthers in favor of backup Evan Shirreffs, and had arguably his worst game as a member of the Hurricanes. It probably wasn't necessary to say so, but it affirms that he'll be back under center for Miami next Saturday in the ACC Championship against Clemson.

Miami sophomore WR Ahmmon Richards (elbow) suffered an apparent elbow injury late in the upset loss at Pittsburgh on Friday.

Richards did a great job before leaving, posting three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown. He has NFL caliber ability, but he has had a propensity for injury. After he was targeted on an incomplete pass in the fourth quarter with 1:53 to go, he was clearly favoring a right elbow injury and was writhing around in pain for several moments before receiving assistance from the training staff. He was also walking with a noticeable limp, perhaps related to his earlier hamstring ailment.
Nov 24 - 3:59 PM

Miami senior WR Braxton Berrios racked up four receptions for a team-high 61 yards and a touchdown in Friday's loss at Pittsburgh.

Berrios was the only experienced receiver left standing in a dismal 24-14 upset loss to the Panthers as Ahmmon Richards (elbow) and Christopher Herndon (knee) were forced out early. Suddenly, Miami's offense is in bad shape heading into the ACC Championship Game against defending national champion Clemson in Charlotte next weekend.
Nov 24 - 3:44 PM

Miami redshirt junior QB Malik Rosier completed just 15-of-34 passes for 187 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a stunning 24-14 loss at Pittsburgh.

The No. 2 Hurricanes shockingly limp into the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte next weekend against defending champ Clemson, as their undefeated season is over, and now they could be in real jeopardy of being on the outside of the playoff picture barring a major turnaround next Saturday. Rosier also saw injuries to his receiving corps, including Ahmmon Richards and Christopher Herndon, so things are suddenly going south in South Florida.
Nov 24 - 3:34 PM

Miami senior TE Chris Herndon has been ruled out for the remainder of Friday's game against Pitt due to a left knee injury.

If Miami is to come back from a 17-7 fourth-quarter deficit to the Panthers, they'll be doing it without one of their top pass-catching options. The exact severity of Herndon's knee injury is not yet known, but we'll pass along updates as information becomes available. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder had entered action on Friday boasting a 37-436-4 receiving line on the year.
