Houston Redshirt Senior Quarterback D’Eriq King announced that he will be entering the Transfer Portal on Monday via Twitter.
King decided to preserve his eligibility after a 1-3 record in 4 games this season. King was extremely efficient passing and rushing the ball, throwing for 663 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Also adding in 312 rushing yards and 6 TDs.
The Texas native flourished during the 2018 season. King passed for 2,982 yards and 36 touchdowns to just 6 interceptions. King also carried for 674 yards and 14 touchdowns.
HOW MIAMI CAN USE DERIQ KING
King stands at just 5’11 and is relatively small. However, he makes up for his lack of height with his ability to navigate in the pocket and also using his mobility to open up space.
King is very quick and efficient in the pocket and throws accurate balls. The ability to scramble is essential as well in building a perfect College Football Quarterback, and King holds that.
King tore his meniscus during the 2018 season and it causes a certain amount of concern for the Graduate Transfer.
Miami has expressed its interest in King, according to 247Sports. King also followed new Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee on Twitter last week. He has also followed Miami linebacker, Ryan Ragone.
King would thrive in Lashlee’s Spread Offense System. And as Canes Fans know, Miami deserves a better quarterback after watching the season this was.
