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.
