Miami football fans received some positive news Monday evening: starting cornerback Tyrique Stevenson and starting offensive tackle Zion Nelson will be returning to The U next season, per their announcements made via social media.

“I’m very much excited to come back and be a big part of the program that’s moving in a new direction,” Stevenson said in a video he posted on Twitter. “Just to be from Miami and actually be a part of this new tradition that’s starting and this new culture that we’re building here is a great feeling.”

New Hurricanes offensive line coach Alex Mirabal will be glad to have one of Miami’s most experienced returning offensive lineman under his tutelage next season in Nelson. The 6-foot-5, rising fourthyear offensive tackle has started 32 of his 35 games played with the Canes.

“[We have] Coach Mirabal and Coach Cristobal,” Nelson said in a video posted by Miami football’s Twitter account. “I think that this year we can really compete for some big things.”

Nelson also announced his return to Miami through a graphic he posted on his Instagram page.

“My teammates and I have built bonds that will last a lifetime and it’s been the greatest honor of my life taking the field with them for the past 3 years,” Nelson wrote. “I am beyond excited to announce that I will be returning to Miami for the 2022 season and look forward to helping this team compete for a national championship.”

Both Stevenson and Nelson will look to help elevate the Hurricanes into championship contention in Mario Cristobal’s first season as Miami’s head coach.

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – One person has died and four others were injured following a shooting outside a bar in Northwest Miami-Dade.

The shooting happened at the Chicagoan Bar, located at 10702 NW 7th Ave, at around midnight on Tuesday.

The deceased individual was reportedly drinking at the bar and refused to pay his bill.

Security eventually removed him from the bar.

He then drove away, returned to the bar, stopped in the middle of the street then began firing several rounds at the bar’s security, according to police.

Another security guard came from inside the bar and returned fire, killing the patron.

One of the security guards was shot and taken to a local hospital.

Three women were also caught in the crossfire — two of them were transported to the hospital while the third was treated on the scene after being grazed.

All victims taken to the hospital are in stable condition.

Several homicide detectives continue to investigate.

Those who frequent the area are advised to seek alternative routes until the scene has cleared.
