Player Overview

With 229 catches in three seasons at Miami (Ohio), Harwell has been one of the most productive pass catchers in college football the last few years. But due to off-field issues, he was dismissed from the program last year, transferred to Kansas and was forced to redshirt in 2013.

Harwell returns to the field in 2014 for his final year of college football and first official season in a Kansas uniform after serving on the scout team all of last season.

While the measureables aren't ideal for the NFL level, he is proven and if he can be productive in Kansas' suspect passing attack, Harwell will attract attention as a possible NFL Draft pick.

Strengths Weaknesses

He has ordinary size and speed and doesn't have the most natural hands, but works well out of the slot, using the middle of the field with a veteran field sense. Harwell displays quickness in his breaks and smooth redirection skills, creating a cushion in coverage with his short-area route quickness.

10/01/2014 - Kansas fires Weis...Kansas fired coach Charlie Weis a day after the Jayhawks were shut out by Texas on Saturday. Athletic director Sheahon Zenger announced the firing Sunday morning in a statement. "I normally do not favor changing coaches mid-season," Zenger said. "But I believe we have talented coaches and players in this program, and I think this decision gives our players the best chance to begin making progress right away. "I appreciate what Coach Weis did with several facets of our football program. But we have not made the on-the-field progress we believe we should. I believe new leadership gives our coaches and players the best chance to make a fresh start." Weis was in his third season as the Jayhawks' coach. He finished 6-22 overall and 1-18 against Big 12 opponents. Kansas is 2-2 this season. Kansas lost to Texas 23-0 on Saturday.

Weis originally signed a five-year deal. According to the Lawrence Journal-World, the school owes him $7 million. "As we continue to elevate the national stature of the University of Kansas, our pursuit of excellence extends beyond our research and instructional missions," Kansas chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said in the announcement. "KU alumni, students, fans and supporters expect that Kansas Football will match the other areas in which we excel as a university. After consulting with Dr. Zenger, I am in agreement that it is time for new leadership of our football program."

Defensive coordinator Clint Bowen was named interim coach. Before coming to Kansas, Weis was 35-27 in five seasons as Notre Dame's coach. He also spent one season as Florida's offensive coordinator. Weis was offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs for one year and spent several other seasons as an assistant in the NFL, most notably with the New England Patriots. - The Sports Xchange
