The Miami Hurricanes football program did not list Cornerbacks Malik Curtis and Chris Graves, tight end Dominic Mammarelli and offensive lineman Michael McLaughlin in a graphic released ahead of fall practice according to Christopher Stock of Inside the U. Only 23 players remain on the Miami prior to Mario Crisobal’s hire.
Graves announced his transfer via social media earlier this week. Curtis and Graves who are cousins were teammates at Bishop Verot in Fort Myers before enrolling at Miami. Stock reported that “The official roster on the website has not been updated to indicate the changes and will likely not be updated until fall practices begin.”
Curtis played 19 games in two seasons with the Miami football program, making one start. Graves did not receive any game action as a true freshman in 2022. After playing in 10 games, mostly on special teams as a true freshman in 2020, Mammarelli has received limited playing time in the last two years.
There was a lot of promise for McLaughlin as a 6’7, 300-pound tackle when he signed with the Miami Hurricanes in 2021. McLaughlin played in one game for Miami in 2021 while primarily serving as a practice squad member. Cristobal has emphasized getting bigger on the OL and signing players who suit his expectations.
The Miami Hurricanes football program has 23 scholarship players remaining who were on the roster before Cristobal was hired in December 2021. Miami has 11 players remaining on offense and 12 on defense. Cristobal and his staff have worked hard remaking the Miami roster over the last two off-seasons.
Miami added 16 transfers during the 2023 off-season and 11 during the 2022 off-season. A total of 22 transfers from the last two classes will be on the 2023 Miami football roster. Cristobal has remade about half of the staff from 2022 and nearly half the roster since being hired in December 2021.
