Former four-star tight end — as rated by 247Sports’ own rankings — Jovani Haskins will be leaving Miami after only one year with the school. He was part of Mark Richt’s first recruiting class where he was ranked as the No. 6 tight end in the class and No. 4 recruit in the state of New Jersey. It seems that he has had enough of the Hurricanes though as the school released a statement confirming his transfer:

The 6’4″, 235-pound tight end talked to coach Mark Richt and in the statement from the school said, “I talked to Jovani and we both felt it was in his best interests to get a fresh start somewhere else. We wish him all the best in his future plans.”
Haskins did not record any stats in 2016 and ended up redshirting the season. If he ends up going to another FBS schools he will have to sit out a year per NCAA transfer rules. Were he to go down to the FCS or JUCO ranks he would be able to play right away though since it is not the same level of play.
