Miami Hurricanes cornerback Tyrique Stevenson who transferred from Georgia during the 2021 offseason has been named to “247Sports’ Midseason All-Transfer Team…” Stevenson was one of the top defensive backs in the 2021 transfer portal. Stevenson is sixth on Miami with 23 tackles and second with three pass breakups.

In the season opener against Alabama, Stevenson recorded a career-high nine tackles. Against Appalachian State Stevenson had a career-high three PBUs.

Couch leads Miami CBs with 27 tackles, leads the Hurricanes with four PBUs and has added 1.5 TFLs. Stevenson is listed as a starter for North Carolina State on Saturday while Couch is co-first team.

Stevenson is a third-year sophomore. He has the option of returning to Miami for one or two more years or entering the 2022 NFL Draft.

He’s been a physical presence and a great tackler as well as helping out as a punt returner.Stevenson transferred from Georgia to be close to home and to play as a pure cornerback."

At 6’0, 214 pounds, Stevenson provides Miami with a bigger CB. Stevenson has played almost exclusively outside. At Georgia, Stevenson was used more often in the slot.

Miami lacked depth at CB last season. The Hurricanes currently go five deep on the depth chart at CB. Miami has four-star CBs Chris Graves and Khamauri Rogers committed for 2022. The next steps for Stevenson other than being one of the best transfers is to be one of the best players in the ACC and challenge for All-American.
