Stony Brook, NY (Sports Network) - Former Cincinnati running back Jameel Poteat
has transferred to Stony Brook and joined the Seawolves program, coach Chuck
Priore announced Monday.
Stony Brook, which is joining CAA Football this year, has to replace running
back Miguel Maysonet, the runner-up for the 2012 Walter Payton Award, although
its returnees include another 1,000-yard rusher, senior Marcus Coker.
Poteat, from Harrisburg, Pa., has two years of eligibility remaining and will
join the Seawolves for summer workouts. The 5-foot-10, 207-pound back played in
21 games at Cincinnati, rushing for 227 yards and two touchdowns on 57 carries
and contributing on special teams.
"We're excited to add Jameel to our team," Priore said. "He's a very talented
player who will have an immediate impact on our team. He possesses a great
combination of speed and toughness and comes from a great high school in
Pennsylvania (Bishop McDevitt). I think he'll enjoy playing in our system."
