Miami received a commitment Monday from 2023 FCS passing leader Reese Poffenbarger, ESPN reported.

He led the FCS in passing yards (3,614) and touchdowns (36) in 15 games at Albany, guiding the Great Danes (11-4) to the FCS semifinals.

A former walk-on, Poffenbarger announced on Dec. 20 that he was entering the transfer portal with two years of eligibility remaining.

"Albany will forever have a place in my heart and we did a lot of special things," Poffenbarger told ESPN. "At the end of the day, I thought it was time to move on and put myself in the best position to compete for a national championship and one day play in the NFL."

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Maryland native will join a quarterback competition with Hurricanes sophomore Jacurri Brown and freshman Emory Williams.
