RICHLAND, Mich. (Detroit Free Press) -- MSU 2014 receiving target Drake Harris of Grand Rapids Christian withdrew his verbal commitment to MSU on Monday.

"Since I'm just playing football now," Harris told reporters after his regional basketball game Monday at Gull Lake High School. "I want to play at a bigger school, win a national championship."

Harris reportedly has been at Michigan the past three weekends.

Harris, a football/basketball standout from Grand Rapids Christian, told the Free Press in January that he was still committed to MSU but was no longer considering playing college basketball. He planned to visit other schools, including U-M and Ohio State.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Harris, ranked the country's No.1 receiver in the class of 2014 by recruiting guru Tom Lemming this week, committed to MSU last summer.

Harris first gained notoriety as a basketball prospect before his junior football season, in which he set the state record for receiving yards in a season (2,016). He became just the 12th receiver in the country to eclipse 2,000 yards.
