Before the start of the 2016 college football season, the Miami Hurricanes dismissed defensive stars Jermaine Grace and Al-Quadin Muhammad after they committed NCAA violations as part of a rental car agency probe.
The latter of the two has found a new home in the FCS.
According to Matt Porter of The Palm Beach Post, Muhammad will continue his playing career at Hampton. Muhammad would be eligible to play for the Pirates immediately in a normal transfer from the FBS to the FCS. However, given the nature of this situation, that is in question at this point.
He has had a pretty rocky career at Miami after he was suspended for the 2014 fall semester after he got into a fight with another student. He missed that season, but came back strong and led the Hurricanes with 8.5 tackles for loss and five sacks.
It will certainly be interesting to see if he will be able to suit up for the Pirates this year or if he will be dealing with this NCAA probe for some time going forward.
