Miami Announces The Arrival Of All-American Transfer Dee Delaney

The Hurricanes have officially landed the All-American transfer.

Miami welcomed an All-American transfer on campus today.

Dee Delaney, a standout defensive back from The Citadel, is transferring into the Hurricanes' program, which officially announced his arrival.

The 6-foot-1 cornerback was an All-American at the FCS level last season, leading the Southern Conference in interceptions with six.

Delaney could be an All-ACC caliber player this fall for Mark Richt's program.

Delaney's coach at The Citadel spoke incredibly highly of him at the time of his transfer announcement.

"I appreciate everything Dee Delaney has done representing The Citadel," Brent Thompson said in a statement. "He is going to graduate in May and leaves here having played a vital role in back-to-back Southern Conference championships, which had never happened at this school before.

"The pursuit of Dee from one of the most visible and historic programs in college football is a testament to his work ethic and development over the last four years at The Citadel. We were supportive of Dee while he came to this difficult decision, and we will be cheering for him next season."
