A second Michigan football player has announced their intent to transfer. Drake Harris, a senior, took to Instagram earlier this evening to announce that his career at Michigan had come to a close. He will seek to transfer elsewhere to play his final year of eligibility.
I want to take this opportunity to first and foremost thank everyone who has believed in me up until this point. My journey has had many bumps in the road and the cards I have been dealt were not particularly ideal. However, the end is far from near. -To Coach Hoke, thank you for giving a young boy his dream of playing at The University of Michigan. -To Coach Harbaugh, thank you for helping me expound my athletic abilities and mold me into the athlete that I am today. -To my teammates, friends, family, and fans, you never gave up on me and always allowed me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If It wasn’t for you all, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Without further notice, I will be continuing my football career elsewhere for my 5th year season. I will forever cherish my memories in the Big House and I will never forget the lessons and qualities that made me a Michigan man. Forever and always, GO BLUE!
Harris was a highly-ranked recruit in the 2013 class (4* and No. 68 overall), but he had difficulty finding the field at Michigan. In his career with the Wolverines, Harris played in 25 games and recorded 9 catches for 60 yards. His lone catch in 2017 was for a gain of 10 yards against Ohio State.
