Score a couple of first downs, on the way to a potential touchdown, for QB Evan Shirreffs who wants to transfer from Miami to another school and play immediately.

CBSSports.com’s national college football writer Dennis Dodd has learned exclusively from Shirreffs’ family that he has partially won his appeal to transfer:

Shirreffs had been appealing that due to his pending graduation with a 3.9 GPA and business degree that he should be allowed to go to any school with a top MBA graduate program.

Miami and coach Mark Richt had placed restriction on all ACC schools and several others on an 18 school list that they did want him to be able to transfer to and be immediately eligible. Even our resident Cane “apologist” Ari Russell, wrote that “The U” was being unfair and should just let Sherriffs go where he wants.

The appeals committee at the University agreed with Shirriffs and his counsel that because Duke, Virginia, and North Carolina are now in the top 25 of MBA graduate programs in the country, he can go there immediately and play, if they will have him.

No word on if the Blue Devisl, Cavs or Tarheels do want the Canes backup to play for them.

Shirreffs, who is 6’5″ from Jefferson, GA, played in mop up duty in four games in 2017 throwing only seven passes.

However, he would be in position to possibly start or at least compete at one of those schools for their starting job.
