Rutgers will bring in former Texas A&M defensive end Jahzion Harris from the transfer portal, per On3.

Harris, who played 1 season at Texas A&M, entered the transfer portal last week and will be moving to the B1G. Rutgers landed the former 4-star recruit in the Class of 2021. In his recruiting class, Harris was a top 25 Edge and was ranked just outside the top 200 for 2021.

His sample size at Texas A&M was limited in 2021 since he appeared in 2 games. In those two games, Harris had 1 sack and 4 tackles.

After entering the transfer portal, Harris expressed interest in transferring to a school closer to his home in New York City. He will be playing close to home with Rutgers. Harris will not receive immediate eligibility to play this season due to missing the May 1 deadline to enter the transfer portal for immediate eligibility.

When Harris is eligible to play, he will be a big defensive piece for the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers finished 2021 with a 5-8 record. The Scarlet Knights lost to Wake Forest in the Gator Bowl after Texas A&M pulled out of the bowl game with COVID-19 issues.

Head coach Greg Schiano enters his third season in his second stint with Rutgers. Schiano went 8-14 over two seasons since he rejoined Rutgers in 2020.
