Former Miami defensive lineman Nesta Jade Silvera is enrolling at Arizona State, according to the Miami Herald’s Susan Miller Degnan. Spring semester classes began last week, but the former four-star recruit will start classes immediately.

Nesta Jade Silvera later made the decision official, announcing his transfer to Arizona State any decision to play for head coach Herm Edwards, rather than enter the 2022 NFL Draft or return to Miami for a fifth season. The top 100 player in the 2018 recruiting class initially chose the Hurricanes over Florida, Tennessee and others.

In his four years with the Hurricanes, Silvera had 105 tackles and 16 tackles for loss, including 5.5 this year. He was one of Miami’s starters during the 2021 season, which is why it is such a big loss for them and a big addition for Arizona State.
