Michael Irvin II transfers from Miami (Florida) to Florida Atlantic

Michael Irvin II began his collegiate career with the Miami Hurricanes, where his father laid the groundwork for a Hall of Fame NFL career. 

He’ll attempt to forge his own path during his final season of eligibility, as Irvin II announced Monday he will be transferring to FAU. 

“I have had a riddled college football career so far, which is why I have made this decision very carefully,” he wrote. “With that being said, I have learned a lot and would not change my experience and the relationships I have made throughout the process. I’m thankful for everything that I have been able to do. After a number of discussions with my family, we believe that I have been granted an opportunity that I can’t pass up. I have decided I will spend my last year of college football as an FAU Owl.

“I am extremely excited to start this new chapter in my life.” 

Irvin II was part of the Hurricanes’ 2016 recruiting class and caught nine passes in 2017. He sat out 2018 with an injury and appeared in two games last year. 

Willie Taggart, the former Florida State coach, is entering his first season with the Owls after Lane Kiffin took the Ole Miss job during the offseason. 

Tight end was a position of production last year for FAU, with Harrison Bryant catching 65 passes for 1,004 yards and seven touchdowns. The Cleveland Browns selected Bryant, who won the Mackey Award — given to the nation’s top tight end — in the fourth round of the 2020 draft.
