Lewis III wrote on Instagram that he would transfer after not playing last semester and focusing on his academics.

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity," Lewis III wrote. "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door! #Round 2."

Lewis III attended Lake Mary Prep in Florida and redshirted as a freshman with the Hurricanes this season. Lewis never played a down for Miami, where his father was a consensus All-American before being drafted in the first round by the Ravens prior to their inaugural season in 1996.

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Lewis III rushed for nearly 10,0000 yards and 100 touchdowns in high school.

"I know my dad did leave a great legacy at the University of Miami and in the NFL," Ray Lewis III said when he signed with Miami. "I realize I'm following in his footprints, but I'm also trying to lead my own path."
