Miami Fourth-Year Linebacker Corey Flagg Jr. Will Enter Transfer Portal

Published

In the ever-evolving landscape of college football, the transfer portal continues to reshape rosters and redefine team dynamics. This evening, the Miami Hurricanes, under the helm of head coach Mario Cristobal, received yet another announcement of a departure. Fourth-year junior linebacker Corey Flagg Jr. has declared his intention to enter the transfer portal.

The decision by Corey Flagg Jr. to enter the transfer portal may come as a surprise to some, considering his history as a two-year starter for the Hurricanes. However, this season saw a shift in Flagg Jr.’s role as he transitioned from a key starter to a rotation player within the linebacking corps. This adjustment occurred following the addition of Francisco Mauigoa from Washington State via the transfer portal, a testament to the competitive nature of college football and the impact of its new landscape.

Flagg Jr. will now look to continue his collegiate career at a new destination with one more year of eligibility remaining. This move highlights the flexibility that the transfer portal provides for players seeking expanded roles and fresh opportunities.

Throughout his tenure at the University of Miami, Corey Flagg Jr. made an impact on the field. In 41 games as a Hurricane, he recorded 179 tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss, five and a half sacks, one interception, and one forced fumble. His contributions, both in terms of statistics and leadership, won’t be forgotten by Hurricanes fans, especially his game saving tackle this season against the Clemson Tigers in double overtime at Hard Rock Stadium.

The transfer portal has become a defining feature of college football, offering players the chance to redefine their careers and find the ideal fit for their talents.
