Two Hurricane QB's Leaving
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami backup quarterbacks Taylor Cook
and Cannon Smith say they are leaving the Hurricanes. Both are
trying to find new schools in time for the fall semester.
Their decisions mean freshman A.J. Highsmith, whose father
Alonzo Highsmith was an NFL running back and a member of the
Hurricanes' 1983 national championship team, likely will enter the
season as the backup to starter Jacory Harris. Holder Matt Perrelli
saw time at quarterback in one game in 2006.
Cook was named No. 2 quarterback after the spring practice
season, but Miami coach Randy Shannon revealed Monday that
competition for the backup spot had reopened.
Smith completed his only pass last season, for two yards. Cook
didn't have any passing stats in his lone Miami season.
