Miami football trending for QB D’Eriq King and his plans are evolving
The Miami Football program’s recruitment of QB D’Eriq King, a Houston graduate, continues to develop after attending the Hurricanes this weekend.
Former Houston double-threat quarterback D’Eriq King spent Thursday through Saturday at Coral Gables. Miami’s soccer program is one of several goals King plans to play for as a graduate transfer in 2020. King was scheduled to visit Maryland after his visit to Miami but has been reportedly canceled from multiple sources.
Instead of flying to College Park, King and his mother returned to Houston from Inside the U., according to Andrew Ivins. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported that Oklahoma and LSU may be the biggest competition for the Miami soccer program to sign the 2018 Maxwell Award semi-finalist.
Oklahoma has been mentioned by several sources. The Sooners have five-star signatory Spencer Rattler on their squad in 2019, but have had extraordinary success with transfer quarterbacks. Baker Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy 2017 and Kyler Murray the Heisman 2018 with Jalen Hurts the runner-up in 2019 as a transfer with the Sooners.
King could make more visits, but Ivins wrote Saturday night that no additional recruiting trips are planned. As it stands late Saturday night, King tends to sign with Miami. If King hopes to attend spring training with Miami in March, he’ll have to register by Tuesday morning. King is expected to make a decision within 48 hours.
Arkansas and LSU were seen as the early favorites when King announced his decision to enter the transfer portal during the Clemson-LSU National Championship on Monday night. A lot has changed in the LSU employees since they won the title.
Passing game coordinator Joe Brady has been hired as the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator. Brady’s departure was followed by LSU defense coordinator Dave Aranda, who took the job as head coach at Baylor to ironically replace Matt Rhule, who took the job as head coach at Carolina and then hired Brady.
