Experienced QB transfers to Miami

CORAL GABLES — Quarterback Jake Heaps is transferring to Miami, where the consensus five-star recruit will join a group of inexperienced passers. Because he is set to graduate from Kansas this month, he can play immediately and have one season of eligibility.

As a freshman at BYU, Heaps threw for 2,316 yards, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. But he declined as a sophomore — 1,452 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions over six games — before losing the starting job. Last season, his only one at Kansas, he threw for 1,414 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Miami's projected starter, senior Ryan Williams, tore his right ACL during spring practice. Coach Al Golden elevated redshirt freshman Kevin Olsen to starter ahead of sophomore Gray Crow, who also has never started a game. But at the time, he said incoming freshmen Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier would have a chance to compete.

Baseball: Mike Papi's two-out walkoff double gave Virginia a 2-1 win over Mississippi at the World Series in Omaha, Neb. The Cavaliers on Tuesday face TCU, which beat Texas Tech 3-2. Boomer White singled in the go-ahead run during the Horned Frogs' two-run eighth. The Rebels and Red Raiders meet Tuesday.
