Miami transfer Derrick Smith eyeing Florida and Three other Schools

,Derrick Smith tweeted last week that, “effective today, I would like to inform [Miami Nation], I am no longer on the University of Miami Football team.” The third-year junior defensive back gave no reason for the abrupt departure, which came less than two weeks before The U kicks off the 2019 campaign Florida, In Orlando.

Just a couple of days after tweeting his decision, Smith took to the same social-media site over the weekend to reveal that four schools are under consideration as a potential landing spot — Florida, Illinois, Nebraska and Texas.

Smith is expected pick a at some point this week.

At this time, it’s unclear whether Smith will be eligible to play immediately for his new team, regardless of which one he selects.
