A little over a week after word first surfaced that he would be transferring from USC, and that Miami was a potential landing spot, Blake Ayles officially has a new collegiate football home.
And, of course, said new home is in sunny South Florida.
According to multiple reports, the tight end enrolled at Miami Friday and will be a member of the football program in 2011. Ayles, a senior, will be eligible to play immediately instead of sitting out the normal transfer year due to the sanctions levied on USC by the NCAA.
During his time with the Trojans, Ayles had just 14 receptions for 182 yards, including just one catch for 54 yards in 2010.
Coming out of high school, Ayles was a four-star recruit in Pete Carroll’s 2008 class and was the No. 2 tight end in the nation according to Rivals.com.
