Just learned this Wednesday:
Former UM Hurricanes quarterback Jacory Harris has signed a contract as an "import quarterback,'' according to a release by Edmonton.
As per club policy, the team stated, the terms of the contracts are not released.
Here's the info from "Esks'':
Born: May 12, 1990 – Miami, FL
"A three-year starter at the University of Miami, Harris racked up 8,826 passing yards and 75 touchdowns, including five rushing touchdowns, ranking him second in school history for yards and touchdowns. In 2011, he won the Offensive Most Outstanding Player Award. The year prior, he won the Community Service Man of the Year Award. In 2012, Harris attended mini rookie camp with the Miami Dolphins and briefly signed with the Philadelphia Eagles."
"Edmonton acquired quarterback Mike Reilly from the British Columbia Lions last week,'' a former colleague emailed to us, "which could figure into Harris' chances of making the team."
