** Highly productive linebacker Jordan Harris is leaving the Iowa State Cyclones for another school. As a graduate transfer he’ll be able to play right away for his new team.
** Said Harris, “I just want to be happy where I’m at.” He’s from Clarksdale, Mississippi, and said he wants to be closer to where family could see him in action. He does not regret his time at Iowa State and hopes to make the pros.
** Harris had played at a community college in Mississippi for two years before going to Iowa State for the 2014 season, when he redshirted. In 2015 he was a mainstay for the Big 12 school, starting all 12 games and recording 70 tackles, five of them for loss.
**The linebacker corp for the Cyclones has taken quite a hit. Levi Peters and Luke Knott are other former starters who have elected not to participate in Ames for what would have been their final seasons.
