In a bit of shocking news from the Canes, sophomore CB Christian Williams has elected to enter the transfer portal. Williams is free to engage in contact with other schools for a transfer and his transfer is imminent because Miami has removed his name from the official roster.
No reason has been given for his decision, but It is worth noting that Williams only played 8 snaps last week against UAB.
The 6’1” Daphne, AL product was a late addition from the 2019 recruiting class as a result of efforts by CB coach Mike Rumph to sway him away from Nick Saban and Alabama. Williams did play in all 13 games in 2019, recording five tackles and a single PBU.
This now leaves the Canes with only 5 scholarship corners on the team: starters Al Blades Jr. and DJ Ivey, sophomore Te’Cory Couch, and true freshmen Marcus Clarke and Isaiah Dunson. Depth is now very thin and it’s looking like Couch should be receiving a lot more playing time moving forward.
