On Tuesday morning, the University of Miami announced that Redshirt Senior WR Dayall Harris is leaving the program.
Here’s the release on Harris’ departure from Miami Athletics:
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami announced Tuesday that wide receiver Dayall Harris has decided to leave the football program.
“Dayall and I talked, and we decided that it was in his best interests to graduate this summer and pursue opportunities for more playing time at another school,” head coach Mark Richt said. “We wish him all the best in his future plans.”
Harris, a redshirt senior from Jackson, Miss., caught 19 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons with the Hurricanes. He is scheduled to graduate after UM’s Summer Session B.
“I would like to thank my Hurricanes teammates and coaches for all of their help and support during my time here,” Harris said. “I am proud to be getting my degree from Miami and I’m excited to see what the future holds for me.”
A rotational WR, Harris was poised to offer solid depth behind the starting group. But, he was looking for more playing time, and in Miami’s loaded — and I mean L-O-A-D-E-D — WR group, that playing time simply wasn’t going to be available. And because of that, Harris has elected to depart.
At 6’3” 190lbs, Harris has good size, speed, and skill. He will surely be able to find a home elsewhere as a grad transfer, and compete for the playing time he so greatly desires.
We wish Dayall Harris all the best in his future endeavors.
