Miami dismisses transfer forward


For the second time this season, Miami had parted ways with a transfer to the program.

Before the start of Miami’s game against No. 20 Notre Dame, the team issued a statement announcing VCU transfer forward Michael Gilmore was dismissed from the program, “for failure to meet team expectations.”

Gilmore, nephew of the Hall of Famer Artis Gilmore, was sitting out the season due to NCAA transfer regulations. He was set to have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning at the start of the 2017-18 season. Once listed as a three-start prospect by Rivals — a four-star recruit by ESPN — averaged 2.6 points in 56 appearances for the Rams.

Earlier this season, San Jose State transfer guard Rashad Muhammad, the younger brother of Minnesota Timberwolves wing Shabazz Muhammad, was let go from the program for the same offense as Gilmore. He did not appear in a game for the Hurricanes.

Miami is 11-3 (1-1 ACC) on the season.
