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.
