Michigan lands top WR recruit Drake Harris

(WXYZ) - Michigan's recruiting efforts got a major boost Sunday.

One of the nation's top-ranked wide receivers, Drake Harris, committed to join the Wolverines 24 hours after the team's spring game.

The Grand Rapids Christian two-sports star had previously agreed to play football and basketball at Michigan State, before decommitting over a month ago.

"Just officially committed to The University Of Michigan!" he posted at 12:59 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

The 6'4" 180 lb. wide receiver will join Michigan in 2014, and is the most recent top recruit to join the Wolverines. Derrick Green, the country's top-ranked running back, committed to Michigan in late January.

Harris and Grand Rapids Christian won the Division 4 State Championship last fall. He caught eight passes for a finals-record 243 yards and a touchdown.

He reeled in 2,016 yards receiving in 2012, becoming just the 12th player in the country to surpass the 2,000 mark.
