Miami Hurricanes: D’Eriq King to return for 2021 season

Christmas may already have passed, but the Miami Hurricanes got another present a day late. Saturday, Miami quarterback D‘Eriq King announced that he would be coming back for the 2021 season.

King absolutely electrified the Miami offense this season. In total, he recorded 2573 passing yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions.

His best game of the season came on November 6. Against North Carolina State, he put on a show. He went 31-of-40 on the afternoon, throwing for 430 yards and five touchdowns.

King gave Miami Hurricanes stability

This season, King gave the Miami passing game stability. This was something they did not have last year. His dual-threat ability helped ignite a Miami offense that was full of playmakers, especially at wide receiver. Although there were some struggles early on, King managed to put everything together, by the end of the season.

King’s arrival undoubtedly changed the culture of the Miami program as well. He offered leadership as well as skill, and that certainly showed on the field.

Now, he will look to have a big second year. With the opener slated to take place against Alabama, he will have a chance to make noise early.

One has to wonder if there will be any Miami quarterbacks hitting the transfer portal as result of this news. In what has been a very active couple of days with the transfer portal, players around the country have elected to pursue that route an effort to continue their college football careers.

Miami will certainly be in good hands for the 2021 season, and King will undoubtedly be a huge part of the Hurricanes offense. If he can be the same dynamic playmaker he was this season, the Miami Hurricanes could have a very realistic chance of standing the top of the ACC, and potentially making the College Football Playoff.
