Austin-Cave (6-foot-1, 225 pounds) has spent two seasons at Miami, appearing in 17 games over that span. The Pennsauken, NJ, native recorded five total tackles this past season. Austin-Cave will have three years of eligibility remaining.
Austin-Cave will join a linebacker core that is in need of depth. Currently, the team notably has Lance Dixon, Exree Loe, Lee Kpogba and others set to play linebacker this season for the Mountaineers.
