Miami quarterback Kevin Olsen, a redshirt freshman in the running to start the Hurricanes' season-opening game, reportedly has been suspended.
Olsen (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) was expected to be UM's top backup this season, but when projected senior starter Ryan Williams tore his ACL during spring practice, Olsen suddenly was thrust into the spotlight. He didn't show all that well during the spring, though, and Miami announced in June that former BYU and Kansas quarterback Jake Heaps (6-1, 210) had transferred in.
Heaps is a former mega-recruit who hasn't come close to living up to his high school hype. He is a good athlete who never has shown any consistency and has struggled to be an accurate passer.
