And with that, the Tate Forcier transfer saga appears to be over. After visiting Miami this week, Forcier was reportedly close to making a decision on Wednesday, and it appears he’s done so. Forcier opted to leave Michigan following the 2010 season, releasing a statement on Twitter announcing his intentions*. The Washington Huskies were among the schools on his short list, though he never actually made a visit.
*side note: best way to announce a transfer in the history of college football transfers.
Canes Watch’s Jorge Milian tweeted the news this afternoon, citing a source.
First tweet in more than a year: UM source tells me that Tate Forcier signing transfer papers as we speak.
So much for a long, drawn-out process. Forcier had about six schools in mind, ranging from Montana to Miami, but made his first and last visit last weekend. The Hurricanes need a quarterback and Forcier can quickly compete for the job, following a year off due to the NCAA transfer rules. He will have three years to play two at Miami.
