Previous 25 Miami (FL) Notes Next 25 Miami (FL) Notes

01/21/18 - (CB) - Malek Young, So, 5-09, 180
CB Malek Young, who started 10 games as a sophomore last season, will have to end his career because of a neck/verterbrae injury suffered in the Orange Bowl. He said in a statement released by the school: "After discussions with my family and the UM medical staff, we have determined that my football career should come to an end. I look forward to getting healthy, working towards my degree and continuing to support my teammates, as I know they will continue to support me." Young made 43 tackles, including three for loss. He intercepted two passes and broke up eight passes. He was the first to wear Miami's "Turnover Chain" after picking off a pass in the season-opener against Bethune-Cookman.


12/27/17 - (SS) - Jaquan Johnson, Jr, 5-11, 190
Miami safety Jaquan Johnson grew tired of hearing other people talk about his future, and suggest that he should leave school early for the NFL. So he let them know their opinions didn't matter. He's coming back to Miami next season with eyes on competing for a national championship - and he thinks the final game of this season might be a springboard toward that goal. The Hurricanes (10-2) play Wisconsin (12-1) on Saturday in the Orange Bowl, in the capper of a season where Johnson became a breakout star for Miami. "I could sort of sense it in people's voice that they wanted me to just leave, but you know, I make my own decisions," Johnson said Wednesday. "My dad taught me that. My mom taught me that. And they tell me, make my decisions and live with it." And his decision? "I want to get my degree and play for a national championship," Johnson said. He's on target for the degree, and the Hurricanes - after about a decade of mediocrity - seem like they're getting closer to rejoining the ranks of the nation's elite programs. This is Miami's first trip to a New Year's Six bowl since going to the Peach Bowl in 2005, and if the Hurricanes beat the Badgers it'll be their first 11-win season since 2003. - AP College Football


12/02/17 - (WR) - Braxton Berrios, Sr, 5-09, 186
2017 JIM TATUM AWARD WINNER: Miami senior wide receiver Braxton Berrios has been named the recipient of the 2017 Jim Tatum Award, ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced on Thursday. The Tatum Award is given annually in memory of the late Jim Tatum to the top senior student-athlete (in athletic eligibility) among the league's football players. Tatum, a two-time ACC Coach of the Year, coached in the 1950s at both Maryland and North Carolina and believed strongly in the concept of the student-athlete. Berrios will be recognized this weekend during activities surrounding the 2017 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game, which is set for Saturday at 8 p.m. at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium. Berrios and his Coastal Division champion Hurricane teammates will square off against Atlantic Division champion Clemson for the title. Berrios, who has compiled a near-perfect GPA, is the Hurricanes' fourth NFF National Scholar-Athlete. "Braxton is the epitome of the student-athlete at the University of Miami," said Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt. "His dedication, effort and leadership both on the field and in the classroom serves as an inspiration to our players, coaches and staff. I couldn't be prouder of Braxton for earning the Jim Tatum Award, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for him." - Miami Football

He has helped Miami reach three consecutive bowl games, including a win over West Virginia in the 2016 Russell Athletic Bowl in which he had 64 receiving yards and a touchdown. As a junior, Berrios finished 11th nationally in punt return average (11.3 yards) and was awarded the 2016 University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame Unsung Hero Award. Berrios leads this year's Miami team in receptions (45), receiving yards (583) and touchdown catches (nine).

11/29/17 - (WR) - Ahmmon Richards, So, 6-1, 190
No. 7 Miami has taken another big injury hit, losing wide receiver Ahmmon Richards for the remainder of the season after he injured his left knee in practice Wednesday. Richards has a meniscus injury. That news came less than a week after the Hurricanes (10-1) lost starting tight end Christopher Herndon IV, also to a season-ending knee injury. Miami plays No. 1 Clemson in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Richards will have surgery this week. He had 24 catches for 439 yards and three touchdowns in an injury-plagued season, one where he was slowed by a bad hamstring for several weeks. Herndon was Miami's second-leading receiver, Richards was No. 3. And the Hurricanes have played most of the season without running back Mark Walton, lost to an ankle injury. - AP College Football


11/27/17 - (TE) - Christopher Herndon, Sr, 6-4, 252
Miami (Fla.) senior TE Christopher Herndon (6-4, 254, 4.78, #23) suffered a MCL injury to his left knee during the game on Friday and will require surgery, ending his season. This injury puts his status for the pre-draft process in jeopardy, including the 2018 Senior Bowl. Herndon is a projected mid-round pick who had top-100 potential. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com


11/27/17 - (TE) - Christopher Herndon, Sr, 6-4, 252
Miami suffered a big blow leading up to the ACC title game against Clemson when it learned Sunday that standout tight end Christopher Herndon IV will require season-ending knee surgery. Herndon injured the MCL in his left knee during Friday's 24-14 loss to Pittsburgh. Hurricanes coach Mark Richt announced the loss of Herndon on a conference call with reporters. "Chris Herndon has been a warrior for us," Richt said. "He's been a great player and a great leader on and off the field. He's the kind of person you love to coach, and I know he's going to have a really wonderful NFL career. "It's a shame he can't finish with us because he's very important for us. He's been a mainstay in this offense, so I want to thank him first and foremost for everything he's done for us."

Herndon ranks second on the Hurricanes (10-1) with 40 receptions for 477 yards and four touchdowns. Sophomore Michael Irvin II, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, will start against Clemson. The younger Irvin has five receptions for 56 yards. "I think it's typical when a guy becomes a starter, their level of play tends to go up," Richt said of Irvin. "I think he knows that when everyone is relying on him more than in the past, it'll help him play better." The Hurricanes face a must-win situation against Clemson in the ACC title game in terms of possibly reaching the College Football Playoffs, as their chances suffered a major hit with the loss to Pittsburgh. - The Sports Xchange

11/24/17 - (QB) - Malik Rosier, rJr, 6-1, 216
Despite starting the season unbeaten in 10 straight games, the No. 2 Miami Hurricanes have had a habit all year of falling behind in games they were favored to win. It finally caught up to them on Saturday, as the Pittsburgh Panthers got out to quick start and held on for a 24-14 upset victory at Heinz Field on Friday. The Hurricanes had trailed by two touchdowns in the third quarter against Virginia Nov. 18 before coming back for 30 unanswered points and a runaway victory. On Oct. 28 against North Carolina, they led by one at the half before pulling away for a 24-19 win. This time, there was no comeback in the cards thanks to a strong performance from the Pitt defense. The Panthers batted down 10 passes, had three sacks and allowed just 2.1 yards per carry on the ground.

Miami starter Malik Rosier was a mostly ineffective despite a line of 15 of 34 for 187 yards and two touchdowns. He was briefly pulled in the fourth quarter in favor of redshirt sophomore Evan Shirreffs. In this third action of the year, Shirreffs fared no better, going 0-of-2 passing. Pitt's offense got going thanks to a spark from true freshman quarterback Kenny Pickett. He made his first career start and provided offense both on the ground and through the air. Pickett went 18 of 29 for 193 yards passing, including a four-yard touchdown on a shovel pass to Qadree Ollison to give Pitt a 10-point lead in the second half. - The Sports Xchange

11/21/17 - (TE) - Christopher Herndon, Sr, 6-4, 252
There was just one change in the top 10 in the College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday, but it might be significant. Miami (10-0) moved from No. 3 to No. 2, switching spots with Clemson and thereby strengthening the ACC's odds of getting two teams in the four-team playoff. The Hurricanes and Tigers will meet in the ACC title game. When Clemson (10-1) was No. 2, it would have been easier for the selection committee to drop Miami from third to out of the playoff picture. But now the committee is on record as valuing the Hurricanes' resume above all others except Alabama, making it a more difficult decision to omit a one-loss Miami team from the playoff ... assuming it at least plays a competitive game against the Tigers.

If nothing else, Miami now has a larger margin of error, which could be problematic for a team trying to come from back in the pack -- such as No. 9 Ohio State. Selection committee chairman Kirby Hocutt said there was little separation among the top five teams. "We talked about a Miami team that has shown progress, really strengthened their resume in the last three weeks," Hocutt said. "The selection committee, as we talk about what we see on the field, we see characteristics of a championship-caliber team. ... "They have the ever-slight margin ahead of No. 3 Clemson." The committee did get that right. - The Sports Xchange
