Montgomery's Marcus Harris went a long way from home when he signed with Les Miles' Kansas program out of high school in 2019. But he'll be much closer now.

The Park Crossing alum announced Friday that he has committed to Auburn football as a transfer.

The 6-foot-2, 280-pound Harris was a three-star recruit. He redshirted his freshman season for the Jayhawks before appearing in eight games last year, totaling 27 tackles, a team-high 7½ tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Kansas fired Miles in March.

Harris has four seasons of eligibility remaining with the Tigers.

Harris projects as a strongside defensive end in Auburn's 3-4 defense. Colby Wooden will almost certainly start at that position after his breakout 2020 campaign, but Harris should be able to provide needed depth along with sophomore Zykeivous Walker and incoming freshman Tobechi Okoli.

Auburn has now added six transfers this offseason, with Harris joining Northwestern pass rusher Eku Leota, West Virginia cornerback Dreshun Miller, UAB defensive tackle Tony Fair, Southeast Missouri State defensive back Bydarrius Knighten and Vanderbilt safety Donovan Kaufman.
