Canes gets Cougars transfer D’Eriq King

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Transfer quarterback D’Eriq King has signed with the Miami (Florida) Hurricanes. This is a huge transfer for the Hurricanes, who struggled with the quarterback play in 2019.

King transferred from the Houston Cougars. He elected to redshirt during the 2019 season after playing in the team’s first four games of the season.

Initially, it was believed — at least according to reports — that he would return to the Cougars in 2020. Fast forward to January and he is now a member of the Hurricanes.

King denied the rumors that he was going to the Hurricanes. However, on Monday, he confirmed the news.

In 2019, before redshirting, King went 58 of 110 for 663 yards. He had six touchdown passes and two interceptions.

His best season with the Cougars came during the 2018 season. Under Major Applewhite, he went 219 of 345 for 2,982 yards with 36 touchdown passes and six interceptions.

In his collegiate journey at Houston, he went 369 of 597 for 4,925 yards in 35 games. He had 50 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions.

The Hurricanes had three quarterbacks, who threw a pass in 2019. Barring a transfer, all three previous quarterbacks will join King on the roster.

Jarren Williams went 169 of 276 for 2,187 yards. He also threw 19 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

N’Kosi Perry went 85 of 159 for 1,045 yards. He had eight touchdown passes and three interceptions.

Tate Martell — who also spent time at wide receiver — went 1 of 1 for seven yards.
