Miami Hurricanes: Michael Irvin Jr. enters transfer portal

The Miami Hurricanes are losing a player. On Thursday, it was announced that Michael Irvin Jr. would put his name in the transfer portal.

As a recruit, he was ranked the 33rd overall tight end prospect in the class of 2016 and the 90th overall player from the state of Florida per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. In addition to Miami, he also had offers from Bowling Green, Georgia, Idaho, and Michigan.

Tight end position is full for Miami Hurricanes

This marks a tremendous time of roster turnover for the program. Just looking at the tight end position alone, Miami has several options. They currently have five tight ends on the roster. Brevin Jordan is perhaps the most notable tight end at the position for Miami.

Last season, he was able to put together a bit of production in what was a difficult passing year for the team. Jordan was second on the Hurricanes in receiving. With 35 catches for 495 yards and two touchdowns, he certainly made an impact. A 51-yard pass was his longest reception of the season.

Dominic Mammarelli is a freshman that brings a ton of potential to the Miami Hurricanes football program as well. A native of Naples, he was the 15th overall tight end the 2019 class in the 63rd overall player from the state of Florida per the 247Sports composite rankings.

Simply put, the tight end position was a crowded one for the Miami Hurricanes. We have seen the shakeup that Miami is undergoing as a program, and it is possible that Irvin just never fit into the plans the Hurricanes had for 2020.

It will be interesting to see what the Miami Hurricanes can get from their tight ends. There are a lot of mouths to feed at the position, and this wasn’t a position that was overly successful last season. Now with D’Eriq King in the fold, things could certainly change.

    According to the 247Sports Composite Recruiting Rankings, he was the 33rd best tight end recruit for the class of 2016 and the 90th best athlete in Florida. Not only did Miami give him admission, but so did Bowling Green, Georgia, Idaho, and Michigan.
