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 I️ 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 I️ 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 I️t wasn’t for you all, I️ wouldn’t be where I️ am today. Without further notice, I️ will be continuing my football career elsewhere for my 5th year season. I️ will forever cherish my memories in the Big House and I️ will never forget the lessons and qualities that made me a Michigan man. Forever and always, GO BLUE!
His decision comes less than two days after quarterback Wilton Speight announced he will head elsewhere for his final year. Harris finishes his Michigan career with nine receptions for 60 yards.
