Former Michigan receiver Drake Harris will play his final year of eligibility at Western Michigan, he announced Saturday on his Instagram account.

Harris, a standout at Grand Rapids Christian, had announced last November he would be transferring from the Wolverines. The 6-foot-4, 188 pounder was plagued by hamstring injuries that forced him to miss his senior year of high school football and held him out of his first season at Michigan.

"I'm happy to announce that I will be playing my last year of eligibility at Western Michigan University, while pursuing a masters degree," Harris wrote.

Harris moved to cornerback before last season, but eventually moved back to receiver and took his first offensive snaps of the season on Nov. 4 against Minnesota.
