It's not often that a college football team gets to add a veteran starter as a transfer. It's ever more uncommon when that player gets to suit up right away.

That's the luck that the Louisiana Tech football team just pulled.

Here's the story from the Louisiana Radio Network:

"The Monroe News Star reports Louisiana Tech is adding Iowa State linebacker Jordan Harris to their roster as he’ll suit up this season in Ruston as a graduate transfer. Harris started all 12 games for the Cyclones last season and had 70 tackles."

Harris has had an interesting college career; he first played for Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi before heading to Iowa State. He became a breakout star in his only season for the Cyclones, after red-shirting his first year.

Multiple reports have sited Harris' desire to play closer to home as a factor for his move away from Iowa State.
