The 2018 college football season for Mark Richt and the Miami Hurricanes can be summed up in one word: rocky. After finishing the seaons with a 7-5 record, Richt announced his retirement from the program, which may have been good news for Hurricanes fans.

Former star wide receiver recruit Jeff Thomas was released by the Hurricanes before Richt's retirement, but with Manny Diaz back in the fold as the team's head coach, it appears Thomas is back. In late December, Thomas announced his transfer to Illinois, but that didn't last long.

Thomas announced on Instagram that he's coming back to the U.

Thomas was the No. 5 wide receiver recruit in the 2017 class. He was the leading receiver for the Hurricanes in 2018, and looks to build on a successful campaign in 2019.

Now Hurricanes fans will just wait to see who his quarterback is for next season. Tate Martell is reportedly considering a transfer to play for Miami.
