QB Heaps transferring to Miami

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Quarterback Jake Heaps is transferring from Kansas to Miami, where the former five-star recruit will join a team short on experienced passers.

Hurricanes coach Al Golden announced in a news release Sunday that Heaps has signed a financial aid agreement with the school. He has already graduated and will be eligible to play immediately.

Miami is trying to find a replacement for last year's starter, Stephen Morris.

Ryan Williams, who was the backup to Morris, was expected to enter next season as Miami's starting quarterback, but he is recovering from a knee injury. That leaves redshirt freshman Kevin Olsen, sophomore Gary Crow and incoming freshmen Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier competing for the job.

Heaps, from Sammamish, Washington, started his college career at BYU after being one of the top quarterbacks in the 2010 recruiting class.

He threw for 2,316 yards and 15 touchdowns as a freshman for the Cougars, but struggled as a sophomore, starting six games.

He transferred to Kansas and after sitting out 2012, had a disappointing 2013 with the Jayhawks. He completed 49 percent of his passes last season, with eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Montell Cozart came out of spring practice as Kansas' No. 1 quarterback and Heaps decided to move on for his last year of eligibility.

Miami opens the season Sept. 1 on the road against new Atlantic Coast Conference member Louisville.
