Harbison announces that he's transferring

Posted by: Joe Christensen under Gophers post season Updated: January 15, 2014 - 9:46 PM

Gophers wide receiver Jamel Harbison indicated on Twitter on Wednesday night that he is transferring to Mars Hill University, a Division II-school in North Carolina.

Harbison, a Charlotte, N.C. native, seemed to have a promising career for the Gophers heading into the 2012 season, when he won a starting job as a true freshman during preseason camp. But he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the first quarter of that season’s first game at UNLV.

Harbison showed more flashes of his potential last spring but had a minimal role this past season and missed time because of a disciplinary reason.

In two seasons, he did not catch a pass and had two rushing attempts for a combined zero yards.

On his Twitter account (@jamel_duce), Harbison wrote, “Football is life. Transfer from Minnesota to Mars Hill.”

In a post, he wrote he would “miss all my homeboys and the relationships that I've built on and off the field," adding, "good luck to the gophers next year.”
