Former Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards responded to a report that Alabama offensive tackle Damieon George has entered the transfer portal by responding “Pls lord.” Former Hurricanes quarterback Malik Rosier tagged director of recruiting and wide receiver analyst for the Miami football program Pop Cooney.
Rosier added “just sayin'” and added the shrug emoji. The Miami football program loses four-year starting right tackle D.J. Scaife to graduation. George played in two games for Alabama this season. The 20 snaps George received in the second half were the only ones he had on offense this season.
George also received snaps on the Alabama field goal and PAT attempts against Texas. In 2021 George played 12 games in 2021 and became the Alabama starting right tackle in the 10th game of the season versus New Mexico State. George started three games for Alabama during the 2021 season.
As a 2020 signee with Alabama, George was ranked as the 390th-ranked player, 31st OT and 56th in Texas. Miami linebacker Corey Flagg was a teammate of George at North Shore High School in Houston. Miami has five offensive linemen committed for 2023 but could look to the transfer portal for experience up front.
George made his debut with Alabama as a true freshman in 2020 against Kentucky and played seven snaps against LSU. In the Alabama 52-3 win over Arkansas in the last game of the regular season, George played a season-high 14 snaps. George has the versatility to play guard or tackle.
At 6’6, 330 pounds George would provide Miami with excellent length and size on the OL. True freshman guard Anez Cooper is the only player on the current Miami roster at 6’6, 350 pounds that provide the Hurricanes with the length and size Cooper could provide the Hurricanes up front.
According to 247 Sports, Alabama was the only program that George visited. Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi and Texas A&M all received unofficial visits from George per 247 Sports. Miami and Oregon both offered George in high school so he has past connections with Mario Cristobal and the Hurricanes.
