We heard the rumors for weeks. Now, we know Joe Wylie won't be a member of the University of Miami football team anymore.
The Hurricanes released the former Boyd Anderson standout safety from his scholarship Wednesday, allowing him to transfer to Tennessee State. Wylie played in three games for UM in his freshman season -- Charleston Southern, Georgia Tech and Duke.
As a senior at Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson, Wylie helped the Cobras to a 9-1 record and made more than 100 tackles. His father played basketball at UM from 1988-91 and ranks 15th in points scored and ninth in rebounds at UM.
Wylie came to Miami ranked as the nation's 27th safety by Rivals.com. The Hurricanes are loaded at the position at the moment with redshirt safety Vaughn Telemaque and incoming freshmen Ray Ray Armstrong and Jamal Reid.
