Miami Hurricanes safety Avante Williams was arrested early Thursday morning for aggravated battery on a pregnant woman. Thursday evening, it was announced he was dismissed from the program.

A spokesperson from the University of Miami released a statement Thursday morning regarding the incident.

SLATER SCOOP: Miami spokesperson tells me: “We are aware that football student-athlete Avantae Williams has been arrested by the Miami-Dade Police Department. He was immediately suspended from all team activities.”

What does this mean for Miami Hurricanes?

Heading into the 2021 season, Williams was thought to be emerging part of the defensive rotation at safety. Miami does have depth at the position, which allows them to be able to weather the dismissal of Williams. Bubba Bolden, Amari Carter, and Gervin Hall are all veteran names that will definitely be slotted into the equation at safety.

With that being said, all three of those guys are upperclassman. Once they graduate, depth will be an issue. In that respect, this is a big blow for the Miami hurricanes football program. Williams was one of the top signees of the 2020 class, and he was going to be a staple in the defensive backfield for years to come.

Nevertheless, this is an issue that is much bigger than football.
