Minnesota Scene: U wide receiver to transfer

  • Updated: January 16, 2014 - 12:56 AM

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 the season opener at UNLV.

Harbison showed more flashes of 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 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.”
