Williams played in all 12 games for Memphis last season, completing 57 percent of his passes for 2,075 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions as a freshman.

He's a South Florida native and led Miramar High to a state championship in 2009.

Miami coach Al Golden says Williams adds “toughness, incredible work ethic and smarts on and off the field'' to the Hurricanes.

Miami has also confirmed that a pair of defensive reserves, linebacker Travis Williams and defensive back Jamal Reid, plan to seek transfers.
