(Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)It’s been a rough start to the 2019 season for Manny Diaz and his Miami Hurricanes. They’re off to a 1-2 start with that win coming against Bethune-Cookman, and look almost nothing like the team once projected to contend in the ACC.On top of all of that, it looks like Miami is about to lose one of its top recruits from last year.Taking to Twitter on Friday, Canes offensive lineman Cleveland Reed Jr. announced he was entering the transfer portal.Officially in the transfer portalThough entering the portal doesn’t mean he’s leaving school, StateOfTheU reported that he is no longer listed on the team’s website. Officially in the transfer portal— D1 cleve (@55clevelandreed) September 20, 2019Coming out of high school in 2018, Reed was a four-star recruit and the No. 259 overall prospect in the country. Per 247Sports, he was the No. 12 offensive guard and the No. 48 prospect from the state of Florida.Reed redshirted his first year in Miami, but failed to break into the starting lineup this year. He appeared briefly in Miami’s win over Bethune-Cookman, but not at all in their two prior games.Fortunately for Miami, they’re doing an excellent job recruiting for the Class of 2020 and beyond. They should be able to replace a player of his caliber soon.last_img read more
