Young Miami Hurricanes quarterbacks Tyler Van Dyke and Jake Garcia continued to impress with their performances in the second scrimmage of the spring on Friday night. Under the lights at Hard Rock Stadium Van Dyke was 13-17 for 190 yards and three touchdowns. Garcia was18-27 for 164 and one TD.

Garcia also had a pass intercepted by safety Bubba Bolden. This spring is important in the development of Garcia, redshirt freshman Peyton Matocha and Van Dyke. Developing a backup for King while he sits out this spring is critical for the Miami Hurricanes future. King is entering his last collegiate season in 2021.

Garcia and Van Dyke have been accurate through the first two scrimmages. Van Dyke was 10 of 15 for 114 yards and a TD and Garcia was 15 of 19 for188 yards and a TD in the first scrimmage last weekend. Miami has three practices remaining this week culminating in the Spring Game at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday.

In a video released after the game, head coach Manny Diaz spoke about how the scrimmage went and relayed some of the stats. Wide receiver Charleston Rambo was also impressive showing explosiveness catching seven passes for 107 yards and a TD. Rambo will provide Miami with a deep threat in the passing game in 2021.

Miami has a bright future at QB with Garcia, Matocha, Van Dyke and 2022 commit Jacurri Brown. King has significantly raised the level of the QB play for Miami. The addition of King as a transfer in 2020 has also changed the culture for the Miami football program and more specifically at QB.

Next. Charleston Rambo shows he can be deep threat in scrimmage. dark

Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said earlier this week that the Miami players would see more of the playbook in the second scrimmage. The spring game next week is the closest the Hurricanes players will experience to real situations during the offseason. The QBs will grab the spotlight on Saturday.
