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, 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.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer. He later spent 2 seasons as the publisher of the website “Beyond U Sports” focusing on major college football/basketball. Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.
