Simeon Barrow's status with Miami is uncertain

Former Michigan State defensive lineman Simeon Barrow could be headed elsewhere now, according to On3’s Pete Nakos.

“Miami DL Simeon Barrow has yet to formally notify the program he’s leaving, however, it’s trending in that direction,” Nakos posted on Twitter.

To keep up with the latest players on the move, check out On3’s Transfer Portal wire. The On3 Transfer Portal Instagram account and Twitter account are excellent resources to stay up to date with the latest moves.

“Things are currently up in the air with transfer defensive lineman Simeon Barrow and Miami,” Zenitz posted on Twitter. “He has matriculated, meaning he’s not actively in the portal anymore which could complicate a departure.”

Matt Zenitz added that “if/when Barrow and Miami part ways, Missouri seems to be a team to watch as a possibility for him.”

Simeon Barrow committed to Miami on May 3 after spending four seasons at Michigan State.

He is coming off an impressive three-year run with the Spartans, but he put up his best numbers in 2022. He totaled 40 tackles, including 9.0 tackles for loss and 4.0 sacks that season to set career highs in all three categories.

Barrow followed that up with 36 tackles, 5.5 TFL and 3.5 sacks this past season as a key piece of the MSU defense.

After entering the portal, Barrow came in as the No. 73 overall player and No. 7-ranked defensive lineman in the On3 Industry Transfer Rankings. In addition to Miami, he also visited Missouri and LSU during the transfer process. While he originally committed to Miami, it now seems as if he could end up with the Missouri Tigers.

Barrow played high school football at Grovetown (Ga.) High School, where he was a three-star prospect. He was the No. 785 overall recruit in the 2020 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Miami recently landed Tennessee transfer EDGE Tyler Baron

While Miami could be losing Simeon Barrow, the Hurricanes did recently pick up a big-time transfer for their defensive line.

Former Tennessee EDGE Tyler Baron committed to the Hurricanes earlier this month.

Baron spent four seasons at Tennessee. In the 2023 campaign, Baron tallied a career-high 28 tackles and six sacks while also recovering a fumble. Baron was named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week after recording two sacks in Tennessee’s season-opening victory over Virginia.

In four seasons with the Volunteers, Baron made 48 appearances and amassed 101 tackles, 27 tackles for loss, 13.5 sacks, four passes defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

Baron initially committed to Ole Miss in the portal before flipping his commitment to Louisville. He re-opened his recruitment on April 23 and has now found a home in Miami.
