Miami HC Mark Richt said that redshirt senior QB Malik Rosier will be the team's starter when they open the season against LSU on Sept. 2.

"He's the starter. Malik's the starter. And if something changes, I'll let you know," Richt said while addressing the media on Wednesday. None of this comes as any particular surprise, as Rosier started for the Hurricanes last season and lost no ground to dynamic dual-threat redshirt freshman N'Kosi Perry during the spring. Perry might be the sexier name, but Rosier is a dependable, known quantity after throwing for 3,120 yards (54-percent completions) with a 26/14 TD/INT ratio last season. We don't love him for a true title run, but he's certainly capable enough to keep the Hurricanes in the Playoff hunt.

Miami HC Mark Richt said that sophomore WR Evidence Njoku (knee) has begun running routes in his rehab.

An encouraging sign no doubt after Njoku was held out of the bulk of the on-field work in spring practice while continuing his rehab from a season-ending knee injury sustained last October. The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder was a three-star recruit in Richt's 2017 signing class and finished his aborted inaugural season still looking for his first collegiate catch. His availability for the start of the season -- Miami opens things up against LSU on Sept. 2 -- should clarify after August camp gets underway.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg tabbed Miami redshirt senior DE Demetrius Jackson as the team's most underrated player.

Jackson (6'5/240) registered 18 tackles (7.5 for loss), 3.5 sacks and an interception in six games before being sidelined by a knee injury for the remainder of the most recent campaign. He was held out of spring practice while he continued to rehab from that injury. We'll have a better idea just where he stands health-wise for the coming season once August camp gets underway, but if he's right, he's going to be an integral piece along the defensive line this year. He is a strong defender against the run for his position.

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards caught 44.4% of passes thrown 20 or more yards downfield last season.

Per Pro Football Focus, this is the top mark among returning ACC receivers. Richards (6'2/175) is a dynamic athlete when he's healthy, but he was plagued by injury last season. That rough campaign began with a severe hamstring injury sustained in August camp which caused him to miss the opening weeks of the season and ended with a torn meniscus sustained late in November which sidelined him for bowl action. All told, Richards played in just six games. Even in that small space, he still managed to log a 24-439-3 receiving line. He's turned in a clean offseason and looks to be ready to start August camp without limitation, but given his injury history, we'll be keeping an eye on him after preseason practices start up.

Miami received a commitment from four-star 2019 DB Te'Cory Couch, who had previously been committed to Michigan.

Couch's commitment to the Wolverines lasted two months, and -- at least for now -- he's set to join the Hurricanes. It's a big get for the Miami class, as Couch is considered one of the best defensive backs in the class. He's not the biggest player in the class (5'10/165), but he's considered an exceptional athlete, and his leaping ability along with his cover skills could allow him to play on the outside -- at least on the collegiate level.

Miami freshman RB Lorenzo Lingard has been clocked by the school at 4.27 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Lingard (6'0/180) also joined the track team at Miami and was installed as the anchor leg in the 4x100 relay. The five-star recruit has blazing speed but is still "powerful" according to scouts. Lingard should have an opportunity to make an immediate impact on the Hurricanes offense in 2018 as a true freshman.

NFL.com's Chase Goodbread ranks Miami Junior LB Shaquille Quarterman 12th on his list of future NFL defensive stars.

Goodbread applauds his consistency and wrote, "Since arriving as a freshman in 2016, Quarterman has started all 26 Miami games, with virtually the same tackle production in each of two seasons (84 as a freshman, 83 as a sophomore)." Goodbread is also excited by the idea of Quarterman having former Hurricanes star and Carolina Panthers first-round pick Jon Beason as a mentor. Quarterman looks the part of a future NFL player and will likely be one of the top linebackers off the board next April if his consistency carries over to the upcoming season.

Michigan four-star 2019 verbal CB commit Te'Cory Couch reopened his recruitment.

Couch (5'10/165) pledged to Michigan in April, though 247Sports' Steve Lorenz refers to that initial decision as "somewhat surpris[ing]." However, after committing during an official visit to Ann Arbor, he took a number of visits to Miami. The Hurricanes will almost certainly be a major player for his services -- perhaps the favorite -- now that the cornerback has returned to the open market. On the 247Sports composite board, Couch slides in as the No. 244 overall prospect in the 2019 class. While his spurning of Michigan does hurt, the Wolverines are still in play to land a top-10 class.

Miami junior WR Ahmmon Richards (knee) has been medically cleared to take part in summer workouts.

"I am 100 percent go. I'm doing great, feeling better than ever. I am about right there, running routes and all that stuff," Richards said. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder was limited to just six games last season, sustaining a severe hamstring injury in August camp -- he says he tore it, though that has not been confirmed by the team -- which kept him out of action early on and then later seeing his season shut down altogether courtesy of a torn meniscus in his left knee sustained during a late November practice. When healthy, Richards is one of the most dynamic receivers in the country. Miami does have some wiggle room to play matters cautiously with the talented junior as the flow of workouts and camp dictate, as the team's receiving corp is loaded to the gills with intriguing talent.

Miami redshirt senior WR Dayall Harris has left the team and will seek a graduate transfer.

Harris (6'3/195) made minimal impact with the Hurricanes after signing on as a three-star JUCO prospect in the 2016 class. Over his two seasons in Coral Gables, the wideout logged a 19-182-2 receiving line. During the most recent campaign, he was hit with a multi-game suspension in September for violating team rules. Harris was unable to make a dent on the depth chart this spring and will try to find a more palatable situation for playing time with his upcoming transfer. Moving on as a graduate, he'll be eligible to play immediately with his team to-be during the coming season.

Miami junior RB Travis Homer said that one of his focuses this offseason has been improving his strength and stamina.

"I think you’re going to see a lot of different weights go up and our speed getting faster. I like it … I’ve been working on strength, upper body, lower body," Homer explained, adding that all this work should help him to pick up blocks in pass protection. After opening the 2017 season as backup to Mark Walton, the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder was forced into starting action after Walton sustained a season-ending ankle injury midway through the campaign. All told, the then-sophomore wrapped the past year having rushed for 966 yards (5.9 YPC) and eight touchdowns while posting an 18-219-1 receiving line. With Walton moving on to the pro ranks, Homer will have a chance for robust numbers in Coral Gables this coming season.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson reports that Miami senior T Tyree St. Louis could start at left tackle for the Hurricanes in 2018.

St. Louis has started the last 21 games for Miami at right tackle, but Adelson notes that St. Louis ended the spring on the left side. "The Hurricanes have to replace the entire starting left side of their offensive line, with KC McDermott and Trevor Darling gone," she writes. "But that remains a work in progress after a spring in which the line struggled to play consistently." St. Louis could see his draft stock improve dramatically if he starts at left tackle and performs well in the ACC in 2018.

Miami freshman DE Gregory Rousseau posted a pair of sacks in the team's spring game.

Rosseau (6'7/250) is a player whom Tom VanHaaren suspects could push for playing time as a true freshman. He was a strong performer not only in the team's spring game, but throughout the spring practice gauntlet. Rousseau is a prime candidate to outperform his recruiting ranking as he embarks on his collegiate career -- he signed with the Hurricanes as a three-star prospect over the winter.

Miami (FL) and UAB have agreed to play in 2020.

The game will take place on September 19 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Not surprisingly, it won't be a home-and-home series. Miami still has one more non-conference game to add to their schedule, as they now have the Blazers along with Michigan State and Temple scheduled.
May 14 - 2:51 PM

Miami (FL) received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Keontra Smith, who had previously been committed to Kentucky.

Smith was a long-time verbal for the Wildcats, but he's now a member of the Hurricanes' recruiting class. He was also considering Michigan, Alabama, Auburn and Florida; among others. He ranks as the 13th best safety in the class according to 247 Sports, and the 25th best player out of the state of Florida.
