11 total Hurricanes received some sort of All-ACC honors Monday – Quarterman on First Team; junior running back Travis Homer, freshman tight end Brevin Jordan, senior safety Jaquan Johnson and redshirt senior defensive tackle Gerald Willis III were all named to the All-ACC Second Team; sophomore cornerback Trajan Bandy was selected to the All-ACC Third Team; and five players earned All-ACC Honorable Mention recognition.
Led by DeeJay Dallas’ 110 total scrimmage yards and two total touchdowns along with Travis Homer’s 168 rushing yards on just eight carries – Miami was able to send its seniors off with a 24-3 victory and exact some revenge on visiting No. 24/25 Pittsburgh Saturday night at Hard Rock Stadium.
The University of Miami Hurricanes will travel to Atlanta, Georgia to face ACC rival Georgia Tech, Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Grant Field.
While Saturday’s scrimmage will be the seventh practice of the Hurricanes, it will also serve as the first taste of what college football really is for many of UM’s freshmen.
University of Miami senior defensive lineman Demetrius Jackson is one of those great people who has committed himself to do more than just sacking quarterbacks, evident by his being named to the watch list for the 2018 Wuerffel Trophy.
Three Hurricanes were selected to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference preseason football team, the conference announced Tuesday.
Unlike most programs, the Miami Hurricanes returned to the practice field Tuesday – three days after its spring game – for their 13th practice of the spring.
With Miami losing two cornerbacks – grad-transfer Dee Delaney to graduation and would-be junior Malek Young to a career-ending neck injury – having their youngest boundary defenders make contributions this coming season is a borderline necessity.
