The Michigan Panthers have signed linebacker London Harris as well as defensive end Jesus Gibbs on Thursday. This news follows the recent injury to starting middle linebacker Frank Ginda who is potentially done for the season following an injury sustained during the victory over the Arlington Renegades.

LB London Harris – Texas State (6’1, 231 lbs)

London Harris played in 57 games for Texas State from 2018 to 2022. He made 66 solo tackles, 94 assisted tackles, 9 tackles for a loss, and 4.5 sacks over his career. In his final season, he had 81 total tackles, 3 TFLs, 2 sacks, 2 passes defended, and 2 forced fumbles over 12 games with 11 starts. He played middle linebacker in his final season.

On his pro day in 2023, he ran a 4.63-second 40-yard dash, a 4.5-second shuttle drill, and a 7.52-second 3-cone drill. He also performed 25 reps on the bench press (225 lbs), a 38-inch vertical, and a 10’02” broad jump.

Harris went undrafted in the 2023 NFL draft although he attended a couple of NFL rookie minicamps.
