Former starting Miami Hurricanes wide receivers expected to enter transfer portal

Former starting Miami Hurricanes wide receivers Mark Pope and Dee Wiggins are expected to enter the transfer portal, coach Manny Diaz told reporters Monday afternoon.

“They’re both not officially in the [transfer] portal yet,” Diaz said, “but that’s probably what we’ll expect to happen.”

Neither Pope nor Wiggins, who are both fourth-year juniors out of Miami Southridge, played in Miami’s last two losses to Virginia on Sept. 30 or North Carolina this past Saturday.

Both players have seen their roles decrease this season as younger wide receivers on the roster such as Romello Brinson, Key’Shawn Smith, Brashard Smith and Jacolby George have continued to emerge.
