Auburn TE Jalen Harris to redshirt this season, leave school as graduate transfer
Auburn has lost some depth on offense for the rest of the season.
Tigers senior tight end Jalen Harris announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he has been granted his release from the program and will redshirt this season. Harris will then leave the school as a graduate transfer for next season.
Harris has played 42 games over his four seasons at Auburn, but has mostly been a blocker and special teams contributor. He has four career receptions for 33 yards and two touchdowns, both of which came during his sophomore season in 2016.
This year, Harris had one catch for 12 yards, which came during last Saturday’s loss to LSU. Last season, he made five starts, mostly serving as a blocker for the Tigers’ potent rushing attack.
Harris, who is listed at 6-foot-4, 254 pounds, attended Saint James School in Montgomery, Ala., prior to coming to Auburn.
