Former UM WR 'excited' for opportunity to make big plays at WMU
Drake Harris was never able to put up consistent results at Michigan, but he will get a chance to boost his NFL stock this season at Western Michigan.
Harris is a former 4-star recruit and the No. 3 overall player out of the state of Michigan for the class of 2014 according to 247Sports. The 6-foot-4 WR clearly has the tools and talent, but he managed just nine catches for 60 yards during his time with the Wolverines.
According to David Goricki with The Detroit News, Harris believes part of the problem was he never received the opportunity to thrive at Michigan:
“I’ve always had a lot of confidence in myself – at Michigan I did as well – and I really wasn’t banged up too much,” said Harris. “My true freshman year I was, but after that I was pretty healthy, just feel like I never got the opportunity.”
Now Harris will get a chance with the Broncos, and he says he is “excited” about the chance to be a go-to player:
“I’m excited about the opportunity,” Harris said. “I like moments where people rely on me and go to me and I believe that I’m a player who can make big plays during a game.”
Whether or not Harris can put up a big season remains to be seen, but he definitely has the confidence and skillset to be a difference-maker.
