Former Texas Tech quarterback Vincent Testaverde Jr. is transferring to Miami, his father, former NFL quarterback Vinny Testaverde, told the Associated Press.
Testaverde was a walk-on with the Red Raiders and played in one game his freshman year, completing thee of his first four passes and leading a touchdown drive.
Vinny Testaverde played for Miami from 1983 to 1986. In his senior year, he won the Heisman Trophy and was named a consensus first-team All-American.
The younger Testaverde announced he was transferring in late December. Since he was not on scholarship, he can play immediately at Miami.
The Hurricanes went 6-7 in 2014, losing to South Carolina in the Independence Bowl.
