Tight end Michael Irvin II will transfer from Miami, he announced Thursday.

The son of Hurricanes great and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Michael Irvin did not participate in the team’s first spring practices this week, and speculation grew that he’d transfer.

“After precise thought about my life, future, and dreams I have come to an uneasy decision to put my name in the Transfer portal,” he began his tweet on Thursday, going on to thank the coaches he played for with the Hurricanes.

He continued: “This hurts my heart to the core but I believe it will be whats best for my family and myself. Nothing but love for this place and the people in it with that being said, THANK YOU MIAMI. #CANESForever”

Irvin caught two passes for 33 yards in 13 games as a redshirt junior in 2019. He had 11 catches for 111 yards in 31 games since 2016.

His time at Miami wasn’t smooth. He was suspended multiple times for disciplinary reasons and missed the entire 2018 regular season with a knee injury.

Irvin was a three-star recruit in the Class of 2016, ranked as the No. 33 tight end prospect and the No. 90 overall player in the state of Florida by 247Sports.
