Graduate transfer quarterback D'Eriq King has found a new home.

King announced his plans on Twitter on Monday to transfer to Miami after recently entering the NCAA's transfer portal.

The Athletic's Manny Navarro was first to report that King was expected to join the Hurricanes.

On Jan. 13, King entered the transfer portal after sitting out most of the 2019 season. He started Houston's first four games and then announced in late September that he was redshirting his senior season to preserve his final year of eligibility. 

King passed for 663 yards and six touchdowns in those four games before taking advantage of a new NCAA rule that allows a player to appear in a maximum four games and still retain a year of eligibility. 

247 Sports reported King had been talking with Miami's new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee ever since he entered the transfer portal. He was also linked to LSU, Arkansas, Maryland, Oregon and Ole Miss as other potential landing spots.

Miami went 6–7 in 2019 under first-year head coach Manny Diaz.
