Houstons' D'Eriq King transferring to Miami
Former Houston quarterback D'Eriq King has informed coaches that he will transfer to Miami and begin classes Tuesday. I predicted King would transfer, but thought he would choose Oklahoma.
King played in four games for the Cougars in 2019 before choosing to redshirt for the remainder of the year to preserve his final year of eligibility. At the time, King insisted he would remain a Coog, but everybody knew he was out the door. He had to remain with the team for the season, so he had to be cool about it.
His break-out season was 2018, throwing for 2,982 yards and 36 touchdowns and running for another 14 scores.
Houston went 1-3 with King leading the offense but finished 4-8 and fifth in the AAC. Sophomore Clayton Tune finished the season as the starter.
Meanwhile, Miami's struggles at quarterback were underscored in their 14-0 Independence Bowl loss to Louisiana Tech on Dec. 26.
The Hurricanes played three quarterbacks in that game. Jarren Williams started under center and finished with 94 passing yards and one interception on just nine completions. Tate Martell got in one drive and finished with one pass and five rushes for 5 yards. N'Kosi Perry finished out the contest and went 5-for-13 for 52 yards and a pick.
King should immediately improve an offense that ranked 98th in the country in 2019.
