Drake Harris announces plan to transfer
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Wide receiver Drake Harris announced on Tuesday that he will not be a Wolverine next year. Following the lead of quarterback Wilton Speight, who revealed his plan to transfer on Sunday, Harris announced his decision on Instagram.

Regarded as a four-star prospect before coming to Michigan, Harris has been plagued by injuries throughout his playing career, stretching back into his senior year of high school.

Briefly switching to the cornerback position this fall, he moved back to wide receiver, making one catch for 19 yards. For his career, he pulled in nine receptions for 60 yards.  

Drake Harris’ full announcement of his transfer:

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!
