CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -Miami backup quarterbacks Taylor Cook and Cannon Smith say they are leaving the Hurricanes. Both are trying to find new schools in time for the fall semester.
Their decisions mean freshman A.J. Highsmith, whose father Alonzo Highsmith was an NFL running back and a member of the Hurricanes' 1983 national championship team, likely will enter the season as the backup to starter Jacory Harris. Holder Matt Perrelli saw time at quarterback in one game in 2006.
Cook was named No. 2 quarterback after the spring practice season, but Miami coach Randy Shannon revealed Monday that competition for the backup spot had reopened.
Smith completed his only pass last season, for two yards. Cook didn't have any passing stats in his lone Miami season.
