It has been a pretty much widely held belief that RB Gus Edwards was going to transfer out of the University of Miami football program once the season has ended. Now it’s official. Edwards has decided to move on and transfer to Rutgers.

Edwards is a 6’1 230 pounder from Staten Island, NY. According to scout.com, he’s set to graduate from Miami in may and then transfer to Rutgers in June. He will be available to play for the Scarlet Knights right away. He has one more year of eligibility left.
Edwards has been plagued by injuries, which included him missing all of 2015.
With the loss of Edwards to transfer and Joseph Yearby to the draft, the Canes are left a little thin in the back field. Behind Mark Walton is Travis Homer, Trayone Gray and Robert Burns.
