After missing his senior season of high school with a right hamstring injury, Harris injured his left hamstring and redshirted his freshman year. He missed time with an ankle injury and was limited to just nine games as a redshirt freshman and had just 2 catches for 11 yards in 11 games last season. He also missed the spring game last month though no reason was given as to why.
The former Grand Rapids Christian standout has 8 catches for 50 yards in his Wolverines career.
Now it seems the 6-foot-4, 188-pound Harris will be going to the defensive side of the ball.
Harris’ move will also help the Wolverines’ depth in the secondary.
