On Wednesday night, Gophers receiver Jamel Harbison announced via Twitter that he is transferring from the University of Minnesota to Mars Hill College in North Carolina.

"Football is life transfer from Minnesota to Mars Hill," Harbison wrote on his Twitter profile @Jamel_duce

The redshirt freshman played in nine games in 2013, but did not record any receptions. Most of Harbison's field action was on special teams. 

Harbison grew up in Charlotte, N.C., and played sparingly on offense for Minnesota this season. Fellow freshmen Drew Wolitarsky and Donovahn Jones received more playing time as the year progressed.

Harbison made his collegiate debut at UNLV in 2012, but tore his ACL in that game. He received a medical redshirt.
