The exodus continues.
Sophomore wide receiver Romello Brinson announced Tuesday night on Twitter that he has “officially entered the NCAA transfer portal with two years left of eligibility.’’
Additionally, ESPN reported that UM defensive tackle Jordan Miller is in the portal. He would be the second defensive tackle to leave in as many days, as starting tackle Darrell Jackson announced his surprise departure on Monday.
Brinson, a 6-2, 185-pound Miami Northwestern High graduate, played in nine games and caught seven passes for 99 yards this season, his longest a 58-yarder. Last year he played in seven games and caught seven passes for 90 yards and a touchdown.
Brinson’s departure comes on the same day as veteran Canes running back Jaylan Knighton announced he’d be leaving.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank the man above for getting me to this point in life,’’ Brinson wrote, “and being able to play in my hometown in front of my family. I am more than grateful for the times at Miami, and the relationship I built over the years will be unforgettable.
“I want to thank everyone in the Miami program for everything they’ve done up to this point for helping me academically and athletically from the coaching staff, strength staff, all the way down to the trainers.
“...Wherever my next departure is, will not only get the best person on the field but will get the best person off the field.
“I will forever be a Hurricane and will be rooting for the Canes. #GOCANES.”
As for Miller, a 6-4, 320-pound fifth-year redshirt junior from Jacksonville, he played in 12 games this season and had 18 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack and one fumble recovery. He is the fourth Hurricanes defensive lineman to leave for the portal. The others, besides Jackson, are Allan Haye Jr. and Elijah Roberts.
