Boston College To Seek Medical Redshirt For Montel Harris

Montel Harris' season is over according to a release from Boston College.  Harris returned briefly for two games this season against UMass and Wake Forest, just long enough to break the school's single season rushing record, before his knee injuries flared up again, causing him to have to shut it down for the year.

The school announced that they will be seeking a medical red-shirt waiver for Harris so that he could return next season and complete his full eligibility.

The medical red-shirt is by no means a guarantee as it is arbitrarily decided by the NCAA who to grant them to.  The most recent example is Houston quarterback Case Keenum, who received one last year after tearing his ACL early in the season.

Harris tore his meniscus in his knee at the end of the 2010 season and missed all of spring and summer training camps.  Many questioned whether he was being rushed back before he was fully healed to help the struggling team.

The deal is also planning to apply for a medical waiver for defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey.
