Redshirt Sophomore Jalen Harrington Will Transfer To Murray State

jalen harrington 1University of Louisville redshirt sophomore Jalen Harrington has decided to transfer from the school. He’ll finish his college football career at Murray State. Harrington confirmed the news via his Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon.

The Louisville native was featured in a post earlier on Tuesday as one of three notable names no longer on the Cardinal football roster. Sure enough, just hours later the news had spread that he intended to transfer to another school.

I had heard through a few different sources close to the program that Harrington had informed the coaching staff that he wanted to give up football to focus on other things. Just two weeks later he has found a new home to finish his college career.

Harrington was one of three standouts from Fern Creek High School to sign with Louisville in 2011, along with offensive lineman Jamon Brown and defensive back Jerrell Moore. Two years later, Brown is the only one still on the roster. Moore left the team just a few weeks into fall camp and eventually transferred to Western Kentucky. Unfortunately, he didn’t last long with the Hilltoppers and is no longer a member of WKU program.

Harrington chose Louisville over Kentucky and Indiana out of high school. He was projected to play safety at the college level. He redshirted as a true freshman in 2011 and made the switch to the offensive side of the ball in 2012. Harrington played both tight end and safety in 2012 appearing in 11 games.

Throughout the summer, Shawn Watson spoke highly of Harrington’s progress. He couldn’t be reached for comment, but I can only assume that he decided to transfer due to playing time.

  1. No I didn’t transfer bc of playing time. I was a starter at UofL

  2. Good luck at Murray Jalen.

  3. All the best to you Jalen. Good luck in whatever you do. Hope you have no hard feeling towards the Cards.

  4. Not buying it, why would a starter on a top notch football school, transfer to Murray State unless 1) got in trouble 2) lost the starting role 3) no confidence you can win the job back or 4) was asked to leave.

    • I know u didn’t just call Louisville a top notch program. Man, u must be losing UR mind. Sure they happened to beat a rebuilding Florida. But, they are not even close to being top tier. (Oregon, Stanford, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, etc.). Slow UR roll. Too many 2 and 3-star players. Hey, U of L is okay but u still have several years to see if that comes true.

  5. Jalen Harrington
