Former four-star WR Dionte Mullins leaves Miami


Another day, another highly-touted prospect who has, as of yet, not lived up to the recruiting hype.

Over the weekend, Dionte Mullins took to Twitter to voice his displeasure over his playing time, or lack thereof.  Specifically, Mullins called out wide receivers coach Ron Dugans, writing in one since-deleted tweet that “[i]t’s crazy how this man can’t give me no legit reason why he not playing me.”

Speculation swirled earlier in the week that Mullins had been dismissed from the football team.  In a terse one-sentence press release Thursday, it was confirmed by Mark Richt‘s program that the receiver is no longer a part of the team, although there was no official mention of a dismissal.

The University of Miami announced Thursday that wide receiver Dionte Mullins is leaving the football program to pursue more playing time opportunities at another program.

A four-star member of the Hurricanes’ 2016 recruiting class, Mullins was rated as the No. 50 receiver in the country and the No. 37 player at any position in the state of Florida.  After playing in three games as a true freshman, Mullins has seen action in all eight games this season. He will finish his UM career with four catches for 53 yards, all of which came this season.
