The Miami football program has seen a number of casualties this offseason.
After a number of players left for the draft, several others have decided to transfer away from “The U” because they feel like they won’t be getting much playing time.
Add another one to the list, as on Wednesday it was announced that Terrance Henley would be leaving the program effective immediately.
The story was first reported in the Sun-Sentinal. In a statement, Miami coach Mark Richt addressed the issue directly:
“I talked to Terrance and he felt like he would have more opportunities for playing time at another program,” head coach Mark Richt said. “We wish him all the best in his future plans.”
The move doesn’t come as a surprise, and will have little, if any effect on the University of Miami going forward. The Miami defense is expected to be elite this season, possibly top-10. As a lightly recruited prospect out of Pompano Beach, Henley was unlikely to receive much playing time this season.
He passed on offers from FIU, UAB, and Temple to attend UM. It is unclear where he intends to transfer.
