One of Miami’s top wide receivers will be back with the Hurricanes next season as Stacy Coley has decided not to throw his name into the NFL Draft.
"It's official. I decided to come back for my senior year at the University of Miami to further my education as well as my football career," Coley wrote on Instagram on Sunday.
The 6-foot-1, 187-pound Coley just wrapped up his junior year in which he was one of quarterback Brad Kaaya’s top targets, pulling in 47 passes for 689 yards and four touchdowns. Coley’s yardage total ranked second on the team, just six yards shy of leader Rashawn Scott.
The speedy Coley was voted an all-ACC second-team performer by the coaches despite missing two games with a hamstring injury. His best game of the year came against rival Florida State, as he racked up a career-high 139 receiving yards during a 29-24 loss to the Seminoles.
Over the course of his career Coley has started 21 of 36 games, grabbing 103 passes for 1,464 yards and 11 touchdowns.
