Quarterback Brandon Harris announced via Facebook on Sunday that he will transfer from LSU to North Carolina:
Because Harris is a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play for the Tar Heels next season.
Harris finished his LSU career with 2,756 passing yards and 20 touchdowns against 10 interceptions in three seasons. His best season with the Tigers was 2015, when he served as the team's starter, threw for 2,165 yards and 13 touchdowns with six interceptions, rushed for 226 yards and another four scores and led the team to a 9-3 record.
Harris opened the 2016 season as the Tigers' starter but was demoted quickly in favor of Danny Etling. He announced in February he would leave LSU:
Head coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers granted Harris a full release.
At North Carolina, Harris will be the frontrunner to replace Mitchell Trubisky. The team will look to improve upon last year's 8-5 record and loss to Stanford in the Sun Bowl.
