A former No. 1 overall recruit is on the move, though where he wants to go is reportedly still up in the air. Former No. 1 recruit Jaelan Phillips announced his plans to move on from the UCLA football program after two seasons with the team.

Earlier this week, college football insider Bruce Feldman reported that Phillips scheduled a visit to Miami. That visit is expected to take place this weekend and Phillips appears to have confirmed the news with his latest Twitter post.

Phillips took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to tease college football fans everywhere with a three-letter tweet. "TNM," Phillips said on Twitter: which means "The New Miami."

It's a phrase recruits have been using when discussing visits to Miami.

Phillips could join a string of transfers to sign with Manny Diaz and the Hurricanes since Diaz took over the program earlier this year.

Former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell announced his transfer to Miami using the "TNM" hashtag signifying he wants to be a part of the new Miami Hurricanes program.

Early reports indicated Phillips was interested in a transfer to USC or Stanford, but it appears the Hurricanes are also squarely in the mix. Chigozie Nnoruka, Phillips' teammate at UCLA recently announced his transfer to Miami as well.

Stay tuned.
