A video released by CBSSports.Com lists the Miami football program as having three of the top 10 transfers for the 2020 season. Offensive tackle Issiah Walker, quarterback D’Eriq King and defensive end Quincy Roche are all mentioned.

Quarterback D’Eriq King, offensive tackle Issiah Walker and defensive end Quincy Roche were all listed in the top 10 transfers in college football recently in a video by CBS Sports. King and Roche join the Miami football program as graduate transfers. Walker will matriculate in Coral Gables after one semester at Florida.

King and Roche will have immediate eligibility for Miami in 2020 as graduate transfers from Houston and Temple as will OT Jarrid Williams who announced on Sunday night he will be transferring to Miami from Houston. Walker is likely to have to apply for a waiver from the NCAA for 2020 eligibility.

Walker signed with Florida in December and was an early enrollee in January. After one semester, Walker announced he will leaving Gainesville and shortly thereafter stated he was returning home to South Florida to play for Miami. Walker played in high school at Miami Norland. Walker is a potential future anchor on the Miami OL.

Georgia QBs J.T. Daniels from USC and Jamie Newman from Wake Forest, QB K.J. Costello from Stanford to Mississippi State, linebackers Jabril Cox from North Dakota State to LSU, Brenton Cox from Georgia to archrival Florida and OTs Chris Murray from UCLA to Oklahoma and Cade Mays from Tennessee to UGA were also listed.

King comes to Miami from Houston where he is ranked in the top 10 for Heisman Trophy favorites entering the 2020 season. Miami should be stable at QB in 2020 for the first time since Brad Kaaya left early for the NFL following the 2016 season. Roche will add to a Miami pass rush that should be the best in college football.

New UM OT Jarrid Williams has proven he can play vs. Power 5. dark. Next

Walker is expected to be an addition for the future. The addition of Williams will provide Walker with a chance to be able to develop as a tackle to anchor the Miami offensive line for 2021 and beyond. Miami has also added former FIU kicker Jose Borregales to upgrade what was a shaky Miami kicking game in 2019.
