Former Michigan wide receiver Drake Harris announced on Saturday that he would be transferring to Western Michigan.

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

As a grad transfer, Harris should be eligible immediately for the 2018 season.

Harris was a highly touted recruit coming out of high school, with the wideout at one point being ranked as a five-star before eventually settling down to a four-star in the final ratings of 2014. Harris initially picked Michigan over other schools like Alabama, Florida, and Ohio State, among others.

However, things never played out for Harris like you would expect for such a highly-touted recruit. Harris played in 22 games in his Michigan career, but only caught nine passes for 60 total yards. He also made two tackles on special teams.
