For the second time in his collegiate career, Tyler Harris will leave Memphis, entering the transfer portal. Harris entered the portal on Saturday morning.
Harris told Jason Munz of The Commercial Appeal that it was not his decision to leave the program this time around.
“In life there are several choices and decisions you have to make, this one was not mines, but many doors close for a reason. First NCAA tourney in 8 years, 5th all-time shooter, 1,000 points. I’m all Memphis 4L! Thank you Tiger Nation, I hope I touched every fan in a positive way,” Harris wrote on Twitter.
