Former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier will transfer to Miami to play for the Hurricanes, the Palm Beach Post reported today.
Forcier would have to sit out the 2011 season before he can fulfill his two remaining years of eligibility.
Forcier, who played two seasons at Michigan, started every game of his freshman season and completed 165 of 281 passes for 2,050 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He missed last season's Gator Bowl when he was declared ineligible before the 52-14 loss to Mississippi State.
Forcier spent his sophomore season as the primary backup to quarterback Denard Robinson. Forcier finished the season 54-of-84 passing for 597 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.
On Jan. 19, he announced through a press release and on his Twitter account that he planned to leave Michigan.
ESPN reported that Forcier also considered Kansas State, Washington, Arizona and Montana.
