Quarterback Preston Dewey, who has been hampered by injuries during his time at Miami, will no longer be playing football for the Hurricanes.

Miami issued a statement Tuesday afternoon from Dewey, a sophomore who redshirted last season, that said he was stepping away from the game and needs surgery for a back injury.

Dewey is still a student at Miami.

“Following consultations with doctors in Miami and in Texas, it was determined that I am no longer able to play football because of my back injury,” Dewey’s statement read. “We have scheduled surgery for December and I am looking forward to getting better…I would like to thank coach [Al] Golden for the opportunity to be a part of the Hurricanes football program. The future is very bright for this team. Obviously, this is a very sad time for me, but I will continue to be a supporter of this team and these coaches and I will be a Hurricane for life.”

The 6-2, 208-pound Dewey threw for nearly 1,500 yards with 13 touchdowns as a junior in high school. He missed most of his senior year with a wrist injury, but was an Under Armour All-American and was rated a three-star prospect by Scout and Rivals.

He was expected to be Miami’s fourth-string quarterback behind Stephen Morris, Ryan Williams, and Gary Crow
