Defensive lineman Jamil Burroughs reportedly leaving Hurricanes via transfer portal despite never playing at UM

The Hurricanes added Jamil Burroughs via a transfer last year, but now it appears he is leaving UM without ever playing a game for Miami.

The former Alabama defensive lineman has entered the transfer portal, according to multiple reports.

Burroughs, who played 20 games with the Crimson Tide, arrived at Miami shortly before the 2023 season began. He left Alabama after a reported altercation with Crimson Tide director of player development Josh Chapman, according to Rivals.

Burroughs played in 11 games in 2022, making eight tackles with one sack.

“Had some good film,” Cristobal said in September. “I know enough of the backstory and the people and the place and whatnot to feel comfortable to present an opportunity and take it from there.”
