Corey King Leaves Program

Corey King has been officially removed from the team's roster following his decision to leave the program. Read on for more.

Corey King is no longer a member of the Hurricane football team, as he's been removed from the team's official roster.

King, a late addition to Al Golden's first recruiting class at the University of Miami, played high school football at West Boca High. He's now one of two players from that school - Jawand Blue being the other - who did not finish his career at Miami.

An All-Area selection by local newspapers as a senior, King was a three-year starter but lack of ideal size (6-foot-1 and 275 pounds) and low test scores limited his options on signing day. He was a late qualifier, and the Hurricanes offered him a scholarship.

After redshirting in 2011, King played in nine games as a redshirt freshman in 2012 and started one of them. He finished the season with 13 tackles, with his one start coming at Notre Dame.

His role went down in 2013, as he played in just three games. Injuries and better depth at the position prevented him from seeing the field as a junior last season.

He was going to enter fall camp buried on the depth chart, which is likely one of the reasons for his departure. Since he's already graduated, he's eligible to transfer to a Division 1 school. As of now, his next destination remains unclear.
