A first-string linebacker for the Kansas football team at the conclusion of spring practices, on the eve of preseason practices Drew Harvey has left the program and reportedly has entered the transfer portal.

According to a Thursday report from 247 Sports, citing a source with access to the list of available transfers, Harvey’s name is now in the portal, indicating his interest in leaving KU to play elsewhere.

A KU spokesperson told the Journal-World Harvey is no longer with the team.

A reserve linebacker during his first year at Kansas, in 2018, Harvey seemed to be in contention for a starting job this fall after taking first-string reps in the spring and making 4.5 total tackles in the spring game.

A high school standout at Crete Monee (Ill.), south of Chicago, Harvey received a two-star rating in the Class of 2016 from Rivals and signed with Wyoming. However, he didn’t stick with the Cowboys after redshirting in 2016.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported in April of 2017 that Harvey and two other Wyoming players were dismissed from the program at the same time that five others on the roster were suspended. Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl provided no statement on the dismissals and suspensions.

By the fall of 2017, Harvey had landed at Hutchinson Community College. He recorded 71 tackles, two sacks and an interception in 11 games as a redshirt freshman.
