Montel Harris Update: Harris Wants To Go Closer To Home

After an ugly dismissal thanks to repeated violation of team rules, Montel Harris is looking for any school to play football for.

The all-time leading rusher for Boston College says he wants to go closer to home, according to Boston.com.

"I think I want to stay closer to home,’’ said Harris, who grew up in Jacksonville, Fla. "That would be my first choice. I know I’m going to spend the next few weeks just looking at all my options.’’

It will be interesting to see what universities go after Harris considering his medical and behavioral issues. He only played two games last season because he was still recovering from a knee injury, that he claims is now a thing of the past.

"It’s pretty close to 100 percent now,’’ said the 5-foot-10-inch, 207-pound Harris. "I know I’m ready to play again.’’

Harris leaves the Eagles behind after amassing 3,735 rushing yards.

Montel Harris Reportedly Looking At Temple Owls As Transfer Option

The leading rusher in Boston College football history could finish his career at Temple.

Montel Harris, dismissed from the Boston College Eagles on Tuesday due to a repeated violation of team rules, could transfer to the Temple Owls to finish his remaining year of eligibility, according to a report from Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports.

Harris rushed for 3,735 yards and 27 touchdowns with Boston College before being thrown off the team. He was named the ACC's 2011 Preseason Player of the Year, but underwent arthroscopic knee surgery early in the season and only played two games. He returned from the injury to practice once during spring sessions, but complained of soreness and shut it down for the remainder of the spring.

Harris has played four years of college football, but received a medical hardship waiver for a fifth year of eligibility.
