Montel Harris, who is Boston College's career rushing leader but was dismissed from the team in May, has transferred to Temple, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Harris arrived on the Temple campus on Sunday, according to the report.

Harris, who rushed for 3,735 yards and had 22 100-yard games for Boston College, was released from the Eagles' squad for repeated violations of team rules.

He joins former Boston College wideouts coach Ryan Day, who is now Temple's offensive coordinator, and former Boston College offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers, now the Owls' quarterbacks coach.

Harris was the preseason Atlantic Coast Conference offensive player of the year before the 2011 season, but he played just two games because of a knee injury and received a medical redshirt. He has one season of eligibility remaining.

Because he had graduated and is taking graduate courses at Temple that are not offered at Boston College, Harris can compete in 2012 without having to sit out a season.
