Miami has landed a big-time transfer commitment for 2024. After five seasons at Washington capped by a College Football Playoff appearance, Mishael Powell is heading far from his hometown of Seattle.

Powell took to social media on Wednesday evening to announce that he is continuing his college football career in Coral Gables, playing for Mario Cirstobal’s Hurricanes. The 2024 season will mark Year 6 for Powell, which is allowed because he redshirted in 2019 and the 2020 season does not count against his NCAA eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Powell played in 36 games for the Huskies over the past three seasons. He put up his best numbers as a tackler in 2022, while the 2023 campaign was his best in coverage.

Playing just nine contests (eight starts) in 2022, Powell posted a career-high 43 tackles, including 29 solo stops and 1.5 TFLs.

Powell played in all 15 games of the Huskies’ 2023 campaign, including the College Football Playoff National Championship. A 14-game starter, Powell excelled in coverage, recording a career-high 9 passes defended, including the only 3 interceptions of his college career so far. He wasn’t a slouch as a tackler, recording 38 total with 2.5 TFLs.

The addition of Powell gives Miami nine transfer commitment for the 2024 roster.
