Jake Heaps transfers to Miami for senior season
June 17, 2014
The University of Miami announced June 15 that former Skyline High School quarterback Jake Heaps has signed a financial aid agreement and will transfer to the Atlantic Coast Conference school for his senior season — his third college team.
Heaps will be immediately eligible and is expected to compete for the starting job for the Hurricanes, who ended the spring with an uncertain quarterback situation. Projected starter Ryan Williams tore his ACL in April and is not expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Heaps spent the past two years at Kansas, starting nine games last season. He will graduate at the end of June, making himself eligible for the 2014 season for what will be his redshirt senior season.
Heaps left Kansas after losing a battle in the spring for the starting quarterback job to Montell Cozart.
Heaps began his college career at Brigham Young, throwing for 15 touchdowns as a true freshman in 2010. But he decided to transfer after losing the starting job to Riley Nelson in 2011.
Heaps earned Parade All-American honors in 2009 after leading Skyline to three straight state titles.
