Five University of Miami football players have accepted invitations to next month's NFL Combine.
Quarterback Stephen Morris, receiver Allen Hurns, punter Pat O'Donnell and offensive linemen Brandon Linder and Seantrel Henderson will be among the more than 300 prospects evaluated by all 32 NFL teams at the four-day combine.
The combine is scheduled to take place Feb. 22-25 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Morris finished his career ranked third in Miami history with 7,896 passing yards and 49 touchdowns. He is one of only two QBs in Miami history with multiple 3,000-yard passing seasons behind Gino Torretta.
Linder started all 13 games along the offensive line in 2013 and concluded his career with 37 consecutive starts. He was a second-team All-ACC selection and was named the team’s Offensive MVP at the end of the season. Henderson, a third-team All-ACC selection, played in 12 games along the offensive line, making eight starts at right tackle.
Hurns, a second-team All-ACC receiver, set a single-season school record with 1,162 receiving yards and finished with 62 receptions, the third most in a single season. He finished his career ranked seventh in both receptions (121) and receiving yards (1,891).
O'Donnell, meanwhile, transferred to Miami from Cincinnati and set a Hurricanes' single-season record with a 47.1 yards-per-punt average. A first team All-ACC choice and second-team USA Today All-American, he had 23 punts over 50 yards and downed 19 inside the opponents 20-yard line.
