Miami Hurricanes: WVU transfer Daryl Porter Jr. adds to ‘Canes secondary
Late Friday night, the Miami Hurricanes landed a commitment from former West Virginia cornerback Daryl Porter Jr.
Porter will have three years of eligibility left, as he becomes the sixth transfer to come to Miami. He brings with him a bunch of experience. He played 716 overall snaps, allowing 34 receptions recorded 16 yards and three touchdowns in 2021. Porter did have an interception on the year.
The move to Miami from Porter’s perspective makes sense to me. For one, he gets to reunite with Jahmile Addae. Addae recruited Porter to West Virginia, so it is no surprise the two have reunited at Miami.
Many times, recruits will stay in touch with their position coach if the coach goes to a different school. With how much movement there is in college football nowadays, a situation like that is not surprising. One has to wonder if Porter and Addae stayed in touch.

What can he bring to Miami Hurricanes?
Porter has a quick reaction time, and is able to use it to make plays. Measuring in at five-foot-10, his speed is his biggest asset. In addition to being a cover corner, he is also not afraid to come down and make a play. He had five games with at least five tackles in 2021, and was fourth on the team in that category. His five pass deflections led the team.
Porter’s versatility will be able to help the Miami Hurricanes. They already have a strong secondary, and now, he adds to it. Between his ability to cover, and ability to make tackles, this is another big get for Miami.
He is the highest-rated transfer and Miami’s 2022 class. The class itself ranks 15th nationally and third overall in ACC per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Overall, this is another big addition for the Miami Hurricanes. They are adding to what is already a strong secondary, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top at the position.
