The Hurricanes continue to boost their defensive line, adding former Nebraska signee Ernest Suttles.

Reported by Peter Ariz, Suttles first signed with Nebraska as part of their 2013 class.  A Tampa, Fla. native, Suttles was thrown off of team by head coach Bo Pelini after he was ticketed for misdemeanor assault.

According to, a fight broke out during a party between Suttles and his Nebraska teammate, David Santos, in which Suttles allegedly broke a beer bottle over Santos’ head.

Shortly after, Pelini dismissed Suttles, along with teammate Thomas Brown in June.

Suttles was a highly touted defensive end coming out of high school and was expected to contend for ample playing time at linebacker for the Cornhuskers.

The 3-star prospect was rated the No. 24 WDE during the class of 2013 and the No. 77 prospect nationally (247Sports).

Due to transfer rules, Suttles will have to sit out a year before playing at Miami.
