Just a week before the Miami Hurricanes are set to play in the 2018 Pinstripe Bowl, Hurricanes starting quarterback N’Kosi Perry is now uncertain to be available following a report on sexually-explicit images posted to his social media account.
According to The Miami Hurricane, the school’s student newspaper, a video posted on Perry’s Snapchat account was spread and talked about around campus during the final weeks of the fall semester.
Miami’s athletic department weighed in on Friday acknowledging it is aware of the explicit content on a student-athlete’s social media account and officials addressed the player.
“We are aware of an inappropriate video posted on a social media account associated with one of our student-athletes,” a Miami spokesman said in an statement, via The Miami Hurricane. “The video has been removed and the posting has been addressed with the student-athlete. We will continue to be committed to high standards of conduct at UM.”
According to the report, the original video was posted on Perry’s Snapchat less than a day after Miami defeated the Toledo Rockets on Sept. 15. The video, which displayed sexually-explicit content, was reportedly screen recorded then shared around by students in November.
Despite frequent questions from reporters about Perry’s status for the Pinstripe Bowl, Miami has not disclosed whether Perry would be making the trip to New York or on his status for the bowl game.
At this point, Miami is only confirming that an "inappropriate" video involving one of their student athletes was posted on and removed from a social media account.
No answer yet as to whether N'Kosi Perry is traveling to NY for the Pinstripe Bowl, and yes, we've all asked. https://t.co/t6pfsioEO1

If Perry was not allowed to play in the bowl game, redshirt senior quarterback Malik Rosier would likely step in as the starting quarterback for his final collegiate game.
