Michigan wide receiver Drake Harris announced on Saturday that he will transfer to Western Michigan for the 2018 college football season.

Harris is a redshirt senior and, according to NCAA graduate transfer rules, he would be eligible to play right away. Harris broke the news of his transfer on his Instagram account.

He wrote:

“I’m happy to announce that I will be playing my last year of eligibility at Western Michigan University, while pursuing a masters degree. Excited to get working with Coach Lester and the rest of the coaching staff for a great year next season. Go Broncos.”

This news should come as no surprise to Michigan fans, as Harris announced that he would be leaving Michigan on Nov. 28, 2017.

When he came to Michigan in 2014, out of Grand Rapids Christian High School, he was looked at as a big-time recruit for the program. However, his time as a Wolverine was filled with injuries. He sat out his freshman season with hamstring issues that lingered into 2015, which limited his playing time. He played in 11 games in 2016, but only made 2 catches for 11 yards. In 2017, he played in four games, catching 1 pass for 10 yards.
