The 5’11 speedster from Manvel, Texas, D’Eriq King, has transferred out of the University of Houston and has just enrolled into the University of Miami.
After a two-day visit, King decided to spend his last year of college football eligibility with the U.
The former three-star recruit has had an impressive college football career so far with 50 total touchdowns and a career completion percentage of 62%.
Once King entered the transfer portal many teams were interested in him. These teams include Oklahoma, Michigan State, Florida State, Oregon, Arkansas, and LSU. So yeah, he’s a big deal.
With this addition to the Miami Hurricanes roster, the QB battle intensifies in Coral Gables.
Jarren Williams, N’kosi Perry, Tate Martell, Tyler Van Dyke, and now D’Eriq King are fighting for the starting quarterback position for the Hurricanes.
It will be interesting to see what quarterback Miami OC, Rhett Lashlee, will choose.
King seems to be a perfect match for the style of offense that Lashlee runs.
His athleticism is impressive and can cause problems for opposing defenses. He played under a spread offense at a Houston and that’s what Lashlee will be running in the 2020 season
King can really help this struggling offensive line with his mobility and I think that’s what is gonna separate him from the rest of the talented quarterbacks fighting for the starting spot.
The is a HUGE pickup for the Miami Hurricanes and fans should be excited to see him wear orange and green next year.
