Four days after the Hurricanes wrapped up spring practice, one of the quarterbacks competing for Miami’s starting job is leaving the program.

Redshirt freshman Jack Allison is transferring, the school announced Tuesday morning.

In a statement UM released, Hurricanes coach Mark Richt said he and Allison had spoken about the quarterback’s decision.

“Jack approached me and indicated that he felt like he would have more opportunities for playing time at another program,” Richt’s statement read. “We wish him all the best in his future plans.”

Allison was one of five quarterbacks vying to fill the starting job left vacant by the NFL-bound Brad Kaaya. But Allison, a former four-star prospect out of Palmetto High who was limited in practice after suffering a minor shoulder injury in Miami’s second scrimmage, did not emerge from the spring as one of the co-leaders in the competition.
