The Miami Hurricanes have not been shy about picking up transfer students over the offseason. One of those transfer players joining the team is Donnavan Kirk from DePaul. However, can he have an impact on the Hurricanes in the 2013-14 college basketball season?

Well, I would sure hope so, considering that he will only have one year with the team. Kirk is coming off of a season where he averaged 6.2 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game. Those numbers aren’t exactly screaming a breakout season, but Kirk did only play 25.5 minutes per game this past season. Who knows if he will receive more, less or the same amount of playing time, but with Miami looking much different in the upcoming season, more playing time could be very likely.

If Kirk can shoot as efficient from the field as he did last season, he could definitely make an instant impact. He did shoot 49.1 percent from the field and 38.7 percent from behind the arc. However, he did only shoot 31 long-balls on the year.

Kirk is a very interesting transfer, since he played for Miami in his first season in college hoops. However, he only saw the court 9.5 minutes per game and hardly had an impact. For him to be given a second chance on this team, you would think that he has some value to him and that he would play a big role. Well, we will just have to play the waiting game on this one, because who really knows with the season so far away.
