Publicity!! Every time he plays the broadcasters remind the public that he is a transfer from UH and it brings UH into the national spotlight, especially at a time when we need all the publicity we can get given we haven’t played a game yet. At present, he might be the highest profiled transfer since Russell Wilson, who transferred from NC State to Wisconsin and went on to become one of the best undersized QB in the NFL. Kyler Murray, another undersized QB, who is making his name in the NFL.
Do not kid yourself, D’Eriq King transferred to Miami to increase his NFL visibility and given the few games thus far, it’s working in his favor.
