Canadian receiver N’Keal Harry has requested a trade from the New England Patriots.

NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo obtained a statement from Harry’s agent Jamal Tooson.

Harry was born in Toronto in 1997 and the family moved to the Caribbean Island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines when he was a child. Grandmother Felna Harry raised him in Arizona where Harry developed into a two-sport star in football and basketball.

The phenom pass catcher was a five-star recruit who commanded offers from a number of premier NCAA Division I programs, including Oregon, USC, Washington, Texas A&M, Texas, and Wisconsin. It came down to a decision between Arizona and Arizona State and the Sun Devils won out.

After earning a starting role his freshman year, Harry produced two 1,000-yard seasons as a sophomore and junior. In three years, Harry racked up 213 receptions for 2,889 yards with 22 touchdowns in 37 games for ASU and two first-team PAC 12 all-conference honours. He declared early for the NFL Draft after the 2018 season.

The 23-year-old Harry was selected in the first round, 32nd overall during the 2019 NFL Draft. He’s played in 21 career games while recording 45 receptions for 414 yards and four touchdowns with seven carries for 49 yards.
