Tate Forcier transfers to Miami

BY foxsports • February 9, 2011

Former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier has transferred to Miami.

Forcier signed an aid agreement on Wednesday, making the transfer official. Under NCAA rules, he will not be eligible to play for the Hurricanes until 2012.

Forcier completed 219 of 365 passes for 2,647 yards, with 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 20 games for the Wolverines. He announced his intentions to transfer last month on Twitter, and was academically ineligible for Michigan's trip to the Gator Bowl.

Michigan went 9-11 in games in which Forcier played. He appeared in eight games this past season as Denard Robinson's backup.

Still, it's a significant pickup for first-year coach Al Golden, who wanted to add two quarterbacks in this year's recruiting class. Miami figures to have senior Jacory Harris and sophomore Stephen Morris vying for the starting job in 2011, with little depth after that.

Miami was 7-6 last season.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Forcier also was believed to be considering transfer opportunities at Kansas State, Washington, Arizona and Montana.
