Charlotte transfer point guard Jahmir Young told On3.Com he will be visiting the Miami basketball program next week. Young told 247 sports that he has had a pair of zoom calls with eight different schools including Miami. Head coach Jim Larranaga stated earlier this week that Miami is seeking an experienced transfer guard.

Miami loses first-team All-ACC and All-Midwest Regional guard Kameron McGusty and starting point Charlie Moore who was the soul of the 2021-22 Hurricanes. Behind McGusty, Moore and guard Isaiah Wong, the Miami basketball program advanced to a Regional Final in the NCAA Tournament for the first time.

Wing Jordan Miller announced during the end of the season press conference on Tuesday that he is returning for a second season with Miami. Miller transferred from George Mason during the 2021 offseason. Head coach Jim Larranaga stated that Miller will have a bigger role for the 2022-23 season.

Young averaged 19.6 points per game, 5.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals, shot 46.8 percent from the field, 34.1 on three-point attempts and 89.2 on free throws. The last two seasons Young was named first-team All-Conference USA. In 2020, Young was the Conference USA Freshman of the Year and a Freshman All-American.

If Miami can sign Young he would project as the starting point guard in 2021. Bensley Joseph returns next season after backing up Charlie Moore in 2021-22. At the other guard spots, Miami returns Harlond Beverly who redshirted after spinal surgery, Wooga Poplar and redshirt Jakai Robinson also return in 2022-23.

Young has an extensive list of programs that are interested in him. The visit to Coral Gables is a good sign for the Hurricanes. After losing five players to the transfer portal in 2021, none have left the Miami basketball program yet this spring. Miami hosted Kansas State PG Nijel Pack last weekend and will likely host others.

Next. Jordan Miller returning, Isaiah Wong deciding. dark

In addition to McGusty and Moore, Miami also lost big men Rodney Miller and Sam Waardenburg. Deng Gak and Wong are other players who could leave the Miami program after the season. Miami signed a four-man 2022 freshman class. The Hurricanes could add more freshmen. Expect two or more transfers for next season.
