One of the players who planned to enroll early at Miami will not be coming to Coral Gables.

Safety Billy Gibson, a three-star recruit from Miami Southridge High, announced on Twitter last week that he is back on the recruiting market.

Gibson’s departure leaves Miami with one safety (Palm Beach Gardens High three-star Amari Carter) enrolling early. Derrick Smith, another three-star, plans to enroll later.

Canesport reported Wednesday that Carter and four other early enrollees — quarterback Cade Weldon, athlete DeeJay Dallas, defensive end Jonathan Garvin and offensive guard Zach Dykstra — moved into their dorms and will begin orientation.

The Hurricanes are looking for defensive backs with the graduation of starting safeties Jamal Carter and Rayshawn Jenkins and standout cornerback Corn Elder, along with productive grad transfer Adrian Colbert. They are hard after junior college cornerback Jhavonte Dean, an Alabama commit who grew up in Homestead, and high school prospects Christopher Henderson (four-star, Miami-Columbus) and Brian Edwards (three-star, Miramar).
