Texas A&M is seeing one of its edge rushers enter the transfer portal when it opens in December. Donell Harris Jr., a former 4-star recruit, announced his decision on Monday.

“I’m forever thankful for Texas A&M University, Coach Fisher, staff, teammates, and all of the Aggie fans…With that being said, I’ll be entering into the transfer portal, seeking different opportunities,” Harris wrote on Twitter.

Harris, from Miami, pledged to the Aggies in Nov. 2019 as a member of the 2020 class. As a true freshman in the COVID-19-shortened 2020 season, he played in a pair of games before redshirting, then played in 2 more games in 2021.

In August, Jimbo Fisher announced that Harris had “medically retired” from football and would leave the program. However, according to his statement, Harris has now been given the green light to continue his career, although it will be away from Aggieland.

“After being cleared to play the sport I love so dear, a fresh start somewhere else would be in my best interest!” he wrote.
