Senior Jacory Harris will be the starting quarterback for the Miami Hurricanes against Ohio State this week. Harris is coming off a one game suspension for receiving prohibited benefits, but is clear for the moment to play until further notice.
Harris was the likely starter going into the season, besting Stephen Morris in the quarterback competition in fall practice, before the NCAA handed down one game suspensions to Harris and seven other Hurricanes for receiving improper benefits from rogue booster and convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro during their recruitment. All eight were forced to repay their benefits received and forced to sit out the first week of the season.
Harris returns to a team whose passing game struggled without him in the opener against the Terps. Stephen Morris threw for 195 yards and looked efficient at times, but threw two interceptions including a critical game-ending pick six on the penultimate drive of the game.
