Jalen Harris is set to leave as a graduate transfer in the spring, the tight end announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.
Harris will use the NCAA's new redshirt rule, which allows players to appear in up to four games without using a year of eligibility, and redshirt the rest of the 2018 season. Auburn has granted Harris a release from his scholarship.
Harris, who was used as a blocking tight end, finished his career on The Plains with 33 yards and two touchdowns on four receptions. His first touchdown, a 15-yard grab, came against Ole Miss as a sophomore while his second came later that same season in a Sugar Bowl loss against Oklahoma.
Prior to his lone reception this season against LSU, Harris' last reception came against then-No. 1 Alabama in an Iron Bowl victory.
Harris was recruited to Auburn as a former three-star recruit out of Montgomery's St. James School and was mentored by the late Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen.
The tight end joins punter Aidan Marshall, offensive lineman Tyler Carr and cornerback John Broussard Jr. as the fourth player to leave the program since the beginning of fall camp.
