Michigan wide receiver Drake Harris announced at the end of the 2017 season that he would be pursuing a graduate transfer. We now know where he is going.

Harris took to Instagram on Saturday to reveal his transfer destination. He's staying in the state.

"I’m happy to announce that I will be playing my last year of eligibility at Western Michigan University, while pursuing a masters degree. Excited to get working with Coach Lester and the rest of the coaching staff for a great year next season. Go Broncos," he wrote.

Here's his full post:

Harris was a top recruit coming out of high school. He was ranked a four-star wide receiver by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

He originally committed to Michigan State to pursue football and basketball. However, injuries forced him to choose solely football.

Harris totaled nine catches for 60 yards with the Wolverines. He switched to defense in 2017.

The former four-star recruit will reportedly play wideout for Western Michigan. He'll likely make an immediate impact.

Western Michigan is set to play at Michigan in Week 2 of the 2018 season.
