Owls to add standout tailback?

Is Temple in the running for Boston College’s career rushing leader?

The answer is yes, according to Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports.

After standout tailback Montel Harris was kicked off Boston College’s football team, Feldman tweeted last week Harris " … may end up at Temple [with] exEagle assts.”

Harris, who was released for a repeated violation of team rules, would reunite with former Boston College wideouts coach Ryan Day and former Eagles offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers if he transferred to Temple.

Day is Temple’s new offensive coordinator and wideouts coach. Rogers is the Owls’ new associate head coach and quarterbacks coach.

After receiving a medical redshirt, Harris has one more season of eligibility. Assuming he graduates, Harris can transfer anywhere he wants without sitting out a year if he takes graduate courses not offered at Boston College.

The 5-foot-10, 207-pounder played in just two games last season, because of a recurring knee injury. Harris also missed spring practice.

In addition to being the school's leading rusher (3,735 yards), he’s BC’s career leader in 100-yard games (22) and carries (786), and ranks third in touchdowns (27).
