He was one of the most dynamic rushing talents college football had ever seen, so it’s no surprise that despite the impressive string of football players that have come out of the University of Miami that Willis McGahee will be inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame tonight.
McGahee headlines an induction class that also includes TE Kellen Winslow Jr. and former RT Joaquin Gonzalez.
The Bills former first-round pick left the Hurricanes with six school records. In his final collegiate season he rushed for more than 1,700 yards with 28 touchdowns. He had what looked like a career-ending injury in the national title game against Ohio State, which the Hurricanes lost in double overtime, but was still taken with the 23rd pick overall by the Bills in 2003 NFL draft. McGahee did win a national championship with the Canes in 2001, their last to date.
“I can say I was part of the best team that ever graced the University of Miami,’’ McGahee told the Miami Herald.
