Hall is a junior who has played for the Hurricanes in recent years. He made three starts and appeared in all 11 games in 2020. However, he was a primarily a backup this season and did not dress in Miami’s 33-30 win over Georgia Tech in Week 10.
Jennings is also a junior and had even more experience in Miami’s defense. He started all 11 games a year ago, but like Hall, had seen his role be reduced this season. He’s made just 14 tackles in 7 games this season.
Miami has been on a hot streak in recent weeks, winning three straight games. The Hurricanes are still alive in the ACC Coastal and have a chance to make the conference championship game.
Miami faces Florida State this week. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
