Miami (OH) transfer provides QB security

Through the grapevine: Miami (OH) sophomore quarterback Clay Belton will transfer to Maryland and will be eligible to play next season. 


Being a Miami grad, I've followed Belton's college career from day one. He was a three-star recruit and even had an offer from Kansas State, but came to Miami with a lot of hype surrounding him. He's 6-5, 230 with a big arm and pretty good escapability. But he never emerged at Miami:

He couldn't win the starting job there. But he could win it in College Park. Next season, Jamarr Robinson will have the inside track to the position, with Belton, C.J. Brown and Danny O'Brien in the mix. The situation is hardly ideal. Hopefully somebody will stick.
