Buried on the depth chart behind, among others, All-American candidate Duke Johnson, Danny Dillard has decided to take his leave of Coral Gables.
Confirming rumors that were making the rounds Monday, Miami acknowledged Tuesday morning that the running back has decided to leave the UM football program. No reason was given for the departure, although “placement on the depth chart” would likely be a good place to start.
It’s unknown to where the Venice, Fla., native will transfer to continue his playing career.
Dillard was a three-star member of UM’s 2012 recruiting class, rated as the No. 98 player in the state of Florida. He redshirted his true freshman season last year.
Behind Johnson, Dallas Crawford and Eduardo Clements, Dillard would’ve entered the 2013 season at least No. 4 in the running back pecking order.
