Drake Harris transferring from Michigan: Wolverines lose WR

WR Drake Harris is transferring from Michigan football, he announced Tuesday. Harris did not announce a destination.

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 came to Michigan as a wide receiver. The team switched him to defensive back over the summer, then moved him back to receiver during the 2017 season. His announcement comes two days after QB Wilton Speight announced he will also play his final season elsewhere.
