Miami Football may be pursuing the transfer of West Virginia CB Darryl Porter Jr.


Miami football program may sue West Virginia transfer cornerback Darryl Porter Jr.. Porter is an American Heritage alumnus and was recruited in West Virginia by new Miami CB coach Jahmile Addae. Porter announced his transfer on Wednesday. Porter Jr. was a three-star signee with West Virginia in the Class of 2020.

After receiving limited snaps as a rookie in 2020, Porter Jr. had 46 tackles, one tackle for loss, one interception and five pass breakups in 2021. Pro Football Focus appointed Porter Jr. honorable mention All-Big XII in 2021. Porter attended Junior Day in Miami in 2019. Porter is the son of former NFL linebacker Darryl Porter Sr.

Marvin Jones Jr. who signed with Georgia in the class of 2022 who Miami hired Addae is the half-brother of Porter Jr. Miami added Tyrique Stevenson as a transfer from Georgia in the 2021 offseason. The Hurricanes signed four-star CBs Chris Graves and Khamauri Rogers and three-star Jaden Harris for 2022.

EerSports, the 247 Sports West Virginia site reported on Wednesday that Porter Jr. has yet to officially enter the transfer portal. Miami needs to add experienced depth to CB. After receiving the additional year of eligibility given to all varsity athletes in 2020-21, Porter Jr. will have another three years of eligibility.

In addition to Stevenson, Miami is returning Al Blades Jr, Marcus Clarke, Te’Cory Couch, Malik Curtis and DJ Ivey to CB. Clarke started most of last season with Stevenson. Blades, Couch and Ivey have all been starters in the past. Miami needs to keep adding depth and experience to its roster.

Porter was a starter for West Virginia in 2021. Adding his experience to the six returning CBs Miami has on its roster would allow Addae and defensive coordinator Kevin Steele to develop Graves, Harris and Rogers without having to rely on them in 2022. Porter would be a good addition to Miami’s football roster.
