 Zach McCloud, Miami (FL), Player News


  One of the Miami Hurricanes' biggest "surprises of spring so far" - in the words of Jess Simpson - started off as little more than a joke at the end of last season. McCloud was still with the linebackers for most of practice leading up to the 2020 Cheez-It Bowl, and the redshirt senior sat in a meeting while Miami went over its third-down package. "I can do that," McCloud quipped as the Hurricanes talked through a defensive end's responsibility. He was "just kind of like being cocky," McCloud said. "I was making a joke." Coach Manny Diaz "perked up," McCloud said. Miami's two star defensive ends weren't going to suit up for the Cheez-It Bowl, instead opting to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft, and it left the Hurricanes with a massive void at a former position of strength.

A new experiment began. McCloud practiced at defensive end that day and has been there every day since. He came off the bench as a defensive end in the bowl game and spent the entire offseason planning around a full-time position change, adding about 25 pounds throughout the winter and studying NFL edge rushers "with a similar body profile" to his 6-foot-2 frame. With Jaelan Phillips and Quincy Roche gone to the NFL, Miami is holding open competition at both end spots, and Simpson said McCloud has been one of the biggest surprises. - Miami Herald

  Miami coach Manny Diaz says senior linebacker Zach McCloud has chosen to redshirt this season and preserve his final year of eligibility for 2020. McCloud was a three-year starter at Miami but appeared only sparingly in the Hurricanes' first four games this season, with the team primarily using two-linebacker sets instead of having three on the field as in years past. McCloud can still appear in one more game this season and be eligible for the redshirt, under a new NCAA rule that went into effect in 2018. Shaquille Quarterman and Michael Pinckney have gotten the overwhelming majority of the snaps at linebacker this year. - AP College Football
