Cyler Miles Has Been Reinstated, Damore'ea Stringfellow Will Transfer

The QB battle just got a little more heated, and the WR corps lost a big time competitor.

The UW today announced that Cyler Miles, the only QB on the roster with starting experience, has served his supsension and will rejoin the team for all activities.

Meanwhile, Damore'ea Stringfellow will seek to transfer to another program.

A third bit of news is that Ryan McDaniel has been medically retired after lingering issues with his knee.


It's going to be interesting to see how the QB battle shakes out. How far behind will Miles be heading into fall, and just how much did he learn from those rumored tutoring sessions that he had with Offensive Coordinator and QB Coach Jonathan Smith? He's going to be right in the thick of it, and being the most accurate of the passers I might even think he's the favorite to start August 30th at Hawaii.

From a purely football perspective, it sucks to see String go. If you ever forget how good a player he could have been, go ahead and pop in the UCLA game from this season and it'll jog your memory. 8 catches, 147 yards, and a touchdown, and a couple of plays that were as dominant as you'll ever see from a WR in terms of manhandling defenders. Still, it may just be best for all involved that Stringfellow gets a fresh start.

McDaniel had a knee injury when he arrived on campus, and has been injured for more time than he's been healthy since. He got some burn against Idaho State, but in the business of college football the writing was on the wall for this young man. He was buried on the RB depth chart, and was being passed up by players with more eligibility remaining, which usually signals that a player will be departing the roster in one form or another.
