Minnesota Football: Harbison Transferring Out of Minnesota - Thoughts and Reactions

GopherSports.com

The move costs the Gophers potential rather than production.

A hat tip those who already noted this in the comments of the last football post, but for those who haven't been watching the comments or the Gopher Twitters in the last 12 hours, it is now official that Jamel Harbison is transferring from Minnesota.

It looks like Harbison is transferring to Mars Hill University in North Carolina (D-II school). This move doesn't affect the current WR production of the Gophers (Harbison didn't have any catches in 2013), but there was always hope that he would develop into the big time WR that everyone thought he'd be after signing with the Gophers as a 3*/4* recruit in 2012.

Some quick reaction tweets from around that Gopher interwebs:

I can get behind this last one.

My thoughts? Simple, like I said above Jamel hadn't done much on the field for the Gophers. Ton of promise, no current production. I'm not glad he's leaving because the optimist in me always wants a kid who signs at Minnesota to succeed here, but I wish him nothing but the best. Sometimes things don't work out, but he's handling the transfer well:

Good luck to you Jamel. Go Gophers!
