Canes C Linder to transfer; sit out year

August 7, 2017

‘Canes C Linder to transfer; will sit out year first … In something of a surprise, Miami announced today that veteran senior C Nick Linder has decided to leave the team and transfer. Linder, who started 26 games for the Hurricanes graduates later this week and would normally be eligible to play this fall. However, he apparently has decided to sit out this season and transfer to another football program next fall. At issue perhaps is the fact that Linder is coming off shoulder surgery and may prefer the chance to take a year off and get healthy; is also being reported that he was struggling to maintain his spot in the ‘Canes starting unit. The 6-2, 300-pound Linder is considered to be a late round or free agent type prospect.
