Former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris has committed to North Carolina, he announced Sunday.

“I’m fully committed to UNC this upcoming year, and I look forward to the opportunity to play for coach (Larry) Fedora and UNC,” Harris said in a Facebook post. “Thank you, to all of those who have kept me in your prayers and continue to do so. I have to say that I haven’t been this excited in a while and can’t do anything but thank God and my wonderful family for their continued support.”

Harris visited North Carolina over the weekend and was expected to have trips to Texas and Arizona. 

The Bossier City native announced last month that he would graduate over the summer and transfer from LSU. If he graduates, he would be immediately eligible to play next season at a Football Bowl Subdivision program.

Harris, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound rising senior, started 15 games for the Tigers over three seasons. Coaches replaced Harris with Danny Etling in the second game of last season, and Harris never played for the Tigers again.
