Miami running back Walter Tucker leaving Hurricanes football team



Miami RB Walter Tucker is leaving the program to "pursue other collegiate opportunities," the Hurricanes announced Thursday.

Tucker, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior, was a contributor on special teams and appeared in 10 games last season. He totaled four carries for five yards over the past two seasons.

"Walter and I spoke yesterday and he felt like he would have a better opportunity to finish his college football career and education at another university," coach Mark Richt in UM's statement. "I wish him the very best."
