Drake Harris announces switch of position
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Once regarded as an elite wide receiver in the nation, a string of injuries have held back Drake Harris from reaching his potential up to this point in his career. Heading into his redshirt junior season, the former Grand Rapids Christian star will give a new position a try, he revealed on Twitter Monday afternoon.

Harris announced that he will now play at cornerback instead of at receiver.

Michigan loses starters at both spots, with Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson gone from receiver, and Jourdan Lewis, Channing Stribling and Jeremy Clark no longer at corner.

The Wolverines are bringing in an exceptional class of true freshmen wide receivers though, with Tarik Black and Donovan Peoples-Jones already having the chance to show their skills in the spring. At the cornerback spot where Harris is moving, Lavert Hill, David Long, Brandon Watson, Keith Washington, Benjamin St-Juste and Ambry Thomas competed for time during the spring.

At 6-foot-4, 188 pound, Harris will be the tallest of the cornerbacks, standing an inch taller than St-Juste, with both players holding a significant height edge over the rest of the group.
