Canes Add Graduate Transfer

The Hurricanes need a cornerback to come in and compete for the starting job opposite Malek Young for the 2017 season and today they received good news on that front. Read on.

Dee Delaney announced today that he will be transferring to Miami for his senior season in 2017. He announced the news this morning:

"Well while one chapter in my book has ended another one is beginning. Deciding to come to The Citadel was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made and now deciding to leave is even harder. The friendships I have made here will last forever. The Citadel has made me into a better and much mature person and for that all I can say is Thank you! I will be transferring to the University of Miami to finish up my senior football season."

Delaney, 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, was an FCS All-American this past season. He finished the season with six interceptions. Originally from Beaufort, SC, Delaney will provide an immediate boost to a thin cornerback position for the Hurricanes. He is expected to win the starting job opposite Malek Young this coming season, which will give the Canes one of the best cornerback tandems in the ACC.

Delaney will be eligible to play right away in 2017 since he already graduated from The Citadel.
