Michigan tight end Ramsey Baty who just announced his entrance into the transfer portal liked the Miami football program coming out of high school.

Michigan tight end Ramsey Baty could consider the Miami football program after recently announcing his entrance into the transfer portal. Baty was a preferred walk-on with Michigan and had a similar offer with the Hurricanes coming out of high school in 2018. Miami has four TEs on its 2020 roster.

Four of the Hurricanes’ tight ends are on scholarship. Twice over the last three seasons, Miami has been hindered by a lack of depth at TE. At the end of the 2017 and 2018 seasons, the Hurricanes were without depth at TE. The 2018 season finished without Miami having a healthy TE on scholarship.

Baty did not receive any playing time during his two seasons in Ann Arbor. During the 2019 season, Baty was named the Michigan offensive scout team player of the week helping the Wolverines prepare for their 38-7 victory over Maryland. Terrapins TE Chigoziem Okonkwo caught two passes for 26 yards in the loss.

Baty played for Archbishop McCarthy high school in Fort Lauderdale. During his high school career, Baty caught 19 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns for the Mavericks. Baty is the son of former NFL TE Greg Baty who played nine seasons in the NFL with the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins.

Baty considered Miami coming out of high school. The 6’5, 228-pound target attended the Virginia Tech and Notre Dame games during the 2017 season with his step-mom who is a Miami alum. Baty spoke about the experience of attending Hard Rock Stadium those nights. Miami won both games convincingly.

"“My stepmom is a huge fan and is alum of the university so I went with her to the Notre Dame game and the Virginia Tech game, and it was really an amazing experience being in that stadium with that crowd, with the jerseys and everything…It’s amazing to have a preferred walk-on spot from there (Miami).”"

If Baty chose to join the Miami football team he would add depth to the Hurricanes roster but would not be expected to come in and make an impact. Miami has scholarship TEs juniors Brevin Jordan and Will Mallory, redshirt freshman Larry Hodges, incoming freshman Dominick Mammarrelli and walk-on, Robert Prosek.

Next. Miami still top 5 sending TEs to NFL. dark

Jordan will probably leave for the NFL Draft following the 2020 Miami football season. The Hurricanes have commitments from 2021 TEs, four-star Elijah Arroyo and three-star Khalil Brantley who the Miami coaching staff believes will exceed his three-star ranking.
