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.

I want to take this opportunity to first and foremost thank everyone who has believed in me up until this point. My journey has had many bumps in the road and the cards I have been dealt were not particularly ideal. However, the end is far from near. -To Coach Hoke, thank you for giving a young boy his dream of playing at The University of Michigan. -To Coach Harbaugh, thank you for helping me expound my athletic abilities and mold me into the athlete that I am today. -To my teammates, friends, family, and fans, you never gave up on me and always allowed me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. If It wasn’t for you all, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Without further notice, I will be continuing my football career elsewhere for my 5th year season. I will forever cherish my memories in the Big House and I will never forget the lessons and qualities that made me a Michigan man. Forever and always, GO BLUE!
