  Before the transfer window deadline closed, one last Hurricane submitted his name to the transfer portal. Starting center Jakai Clark announced Thursday he had entered the portal. "I have officially entered my name into the transfer portal," Clark wrote on his Twitter account. "Thank you to Miami for the many opportunities the have blessed me with, including getting my degree after this spring semester. I am now open to talking to other schools." Clark was a key mainstay on the Hurricanes' offensive line for most of the 2022 season. He started 10 of Miami's 12 games and played limited time in another, missing one game due to injury. - Sun Sentinel

  College football aficionados can exhale soon enough. Wednesday is the final day for players to enter the NCAA transfer portal, before it reopens again for 15 days beginning May 1. This recent portal period began Dec. 5 and was set to end before midnight Wednesday. However, once inside the portal, players are still eligible to transfer. For the Miami Hurricanes, the recent portal period resulted in at least 19 Hurricanes with remaining eligibility entering the portal and another one, Jakai Clark, expected to transfer after he finishes his final semester and graduates in May, the Athletic reported.

Backup UM quarterback Jake Garcia was the latest Cane to enter the portal late Tuesday afternoon, leaving UM with scholarship quarterbacks Tyler Van Dyke, Jacurri Brown and new early enrollee Emory Williams. On Wednesday, UM receiver Romello Brinson, who had previously entered the portal, became the fifth player to join former UM offensive coordinator and current SMU Mustangs head coach Rhett Lashlee. The others: Fellow receiver Key'Shawn Smith, running back Jaylan Knighton and defensive linemen Elijah Roberts and Jordan Miller. - Miami Herald

  Former Oregon Ducks tight end Cam McCormick is reuniting with coach Mario Cristobal. McCormick, who entered the transfer portal last week, announced his commitment to Miami on Sunday. McCormick finished with 10 catches for 66 yards and three touchdowns last season, his first without injury since 2017. He will be entering his eighth season and have two years of eligibility remaining.

The winner of this year's Orange Bowl-FWAA Courage Award, McCormick endured a series of injuries during his career at UO, where he was the longest-tenured football player of all-time. He was one of three UO players hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis following overly strenuous workouts in January 2017, then missed nearly all of the 2018-21 seasons with a broken left ankle that required three surgeries and a torn right Achilles. He graduated with his bachelor's and master's degrees. - The Oregonian

  Cam McCormick's career at Oregon is over after seven seasons. The tight end isn't done playing college football, however. McCormick, whose injury-plagued career as a Duck has made him eligible for two more seasons, announced Tuesday on social media that he is entering the transfer portal. "I came to Eugene at 17 years old and grew up in front of you all," McCormick wrote. "It's time for me to spread my wings and continue my journey elsewhere."

McCormick came to Oregon from Summit High School in Bend in 2016. He had 10 catches for 66 yards and three touchdowns this season - his first full year without injury since 2017. He missed all or part of the 2018, 2019 and 2020 seasons after needing three surgeries to repair an injured ankle. He played two games in 2021 before an injury at Ohio State ended his season. - Register Guard

  01/09/23 - Matthew LeerSr/2024, Miami + More +

  The Hurricanes added crucial depth on the offensive line through the transfer portal on Sunday evening. After visiting Coral Gables over the weekend, Matt Lee, a center from Central Florida, announced his commitment to Miami on Twitter. Lee, an Oviedo native, chose the Hurricanes over Oklahoma. Lee, who posted on Twitter that he had two years of eligibility remaining, was not a highly touted prospect coming out of high school. He was rated a three-star prospect and the No. 171 tackle in the 2019 class in 247Sports' composite rankings. - Sun Sentinel

  The longest-tenured Oregon Ducks player might return for an eighth season. Tight end Cam McCormick, who has nine catches for 64 yards and three touchdowns entering the Holiday Bowl, said he's undecided about whether to return to UO or pursue the NFL. He also acknowledged being granted another year of eligibility by the NCAA due to his torn right Achilles in 2021. "I've thought about it; it's a tough decision," McCormick said after Friday's practice. "I'm not totally keen on what my decision is going to be yet. I'm going to continue to enjoy this game with my teammates and make the decision after the game...I couldn't imagine doing nine. If anything, I applied for it just to have it after Ohio State last year. I tore my Achilles and thankfully was able to get it. The option's there, I do have it. Whether I use it, it's in the air. Thinking about returning for a year eight." If McCormick pursues a pro career now, he is unlikely to receive an invite to this year's NFL combine and would most likely be an undrafted free agent.

If not on an active roster, NFL players signed to practice squads will earn $12,000 per week in 2023. It's possible for players to earn more from name, image and likeness compensation while in college. If he returns to UO, McCormick, who has already earned his bachelor's and master's degrees, said he'd likely take classes in business or yoga or pursue internships to fulfill the academic requirements. He acknowledged the financial, practical and academic realities that will factor into his decision. "Coach (Dan) Lanning is doing a lot of great things, bringing in a lot of great people," McCormick said. "The guys here are great. It's a lot on my mind. It's stressing me out. But it's a good decision to have, that I at least have a decision to make." - The Oregonian

  2022 ALL-AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE SECOND TEAM: C Matt Lee, UCF, Jr.,...Sam Jackson, Matt Lee, Lokahi Pauole and Ryan Swoboda are members of a stellar UCF offensive line that has the Knights ranked ninth nationally and leading the AAC in total offense, averaging 486.5 yards per game.

  Signs continue to point toward UM quarterback Tyler Van Dyke returning to play for the Hurricanes next season. Van Dyke agreed to an NIL deal with John Ruiz's LifeWallet, announced Ruiz, who indicated Van Dyke will remain with the Hurricanes. UM officials have been expecting Van Dyke to bypass the NFL draft to return to play for the Hurricanes next season. He would very likely be UM's starting quarterback next season. Van Dyke was sidelined and limited by a shoulder injury over the final month of this past season. He finished the season with 1835 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions in nine games. - Miami Herald

  Miami Hurricanes cornerback Tyrique Stevenson, the ever-smiling, talented, big-bodied fourth-year junior cornerback who grew up in Miami and transferred from Georgia before the 2021 season, already accepted his invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl. That much we knew, which, in turn, meant he was headed to the 2023 NFL Draft. On Monday afternoon, Stevenson left his farewell message to his family, coaches, teammates and "everyone who has inspired me on my collegiate journey...," confirming that he was "declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft." Stevenson, out of Miami Southridge High, played in 11 games but was injured part of the season. He finished with 25 tackles, 1 1/2 tackles for loss, two interceptions and seven pass breakups in 2022. - Miami Herald
