According to several sources, including ESPN and the Miami Herald, two of four quarterbacks are transferring from UM.

Redshirt Freshman Taylor Cook, named back up to  starter Jacory Harris, will be returning to his home state of Texas to play Division II where he hopes to start immediately.

Cannon Smith, another redshirt Freshman, will also go home to Memphis to play ball according to his father Fred Smith. 

The departure of these two players leaves only A.J. Highsmith, son of Hurricane great, Alonzo Highsmith, as the only other QB on the roster besides Harris.

This begs the question:

What in the world is going on at Miami?

First Robert Marve and now Cook and Smith. I wonder what exactly head coach Randy Shannon is doing or saying that is making these guys take off?

Hopefully more information will be made available soon.
