Miami S James King dismissed, will transfer


The Miami Hurricanes are looking to have a big year under new head coach Mark Richt and could compete for the ACC championship. They have just lost a piece of their defensive depth chart after safety/linebacker James King was dismissed from the team.

It was first reported by Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post and later confirmed by Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee that King had been dismissed from the school for undisclosed reasons. He has also been given a full release and will be able to transfer to play elsewhere.

Christy Chirinos of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel later reported a statement from the school regarding King’s release. Richt confirmed that the rising sophomore has been given a release without any restrictions.

“I have given James a full and unconditional release and I want to wish him the very best in his future moving forward,” Richt said.

James King played a minimal role for the Hurricanes during the 2016 season as a true freshman. He will likely have to sit out the 2016 season and have three years of eligibility left starting in 2017.
