Huell averaged 11.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game as a sophomore for the Hurricanes last season. He was the lone Miami player to start all 32 games for the team.
"I'm really excited to get back to work with my brothers so we can accomplish more than ever during the 2018-19 season," Huell said.
Huell was 14th in the Atlantic Coast Conference in rebounding and 14th in ACC games. He shot 57.6 percent from the field and 68.9 percent from the free-throw line.
The Hurricanes were 22-10 last season, losing to Loyola of Chicago in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
