Miami Loses Another Star After Embarrassing Bowl Loss
Miami lost another star after its embarrassing bowl game loss to Louisiana Tech last week.
Lorenzo Lingard, a former five-star recruit in 2018, has reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Lingard came in as the No. 2 running back recruit in 2018 and was expected to be a big future star for the Hurricanes.
In his first year he recorded 136 yards and two scores on 17 carries. He ended up missing the last seven games of the season with an injury.
This past year he redshirted.
Coming into college Lingard was the No. 25 overall recruit in the 2018 class.
It is unclear what precisely led to his decision to transfer, but Miami’s underwhelming 2019 campaign likely did not help matters.

Coming into the year it was widely believed the Hurricanes had enough talent to compete with anyone in the ACC not named Clemson.
Unfortunately, as the season progressed, it quickly became apparent that Virginia would end up having the 2019 campaign most expected out of Miami.
When it was all said and done, the Hurricanes went 6-7 this past season and got humiliated in the Independence Bowl.
