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.

Source: Patrick Bolger“Yasmin is an experienced mother and is bonding well with the calf, which is very strong and suckling well,” O’Donoghue added. “He has been given a warm welcome by the rest of the herd who are being very protective.”The new calf is Yasmin’s third and Zoo staff consider his arrival an important step in the international breeding programme set up to protect the survival of the Asian elephant. Only between 30,000 and 60,000 of the animals still exist in the wild.A competition to name the new calf will be carried out through the Facebook page of the new sponsor of Dublin Zoo’s Kaziranga Forest Trail, The Natural Confectionery Company.
