He never played a down for Missouri, but he will try to get his college career on track at Kansas.
Former Missouri offensive lineman Harneet Gill, who grew up outside St. Louis, plans to transfer to Kansas, according to a report from Rivals.com.
Gill, a former standout at Francis Howell School in St. Charles, Mo., will be eligible immediately in 2015 after spending last season at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, Calif. Gill played multiple positions for Pierce, including tight end and defensive end, but he is expected to play offensive tackle for the Jayhawks. The Jayhawks have already filled their 25 scholarships for the 2015 class, but Gill could be added to the roster under the “Blue Shirt” rule and be counted toward the 2016 recruiting class.
If he lands on campus, Gill would join a small group of players to spend time in both the KU and Mizzou football programs.

Gill, who was listed at 6-5 and 285 pounds while at Missouri, left the Mizzou program just three days into his freshman season in 2013. In an interview with The Star in 2013, Gill said his departure from Missouri stemmed from a foot injury suffered during his senior season of high school.
Gill was rated as Rivals’ No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Missouri in the 2013 recruiting class.
During spring football, junior offensive tackle Jordan Shelley-Smith and senior offensive tackle Larry Mazyck spent most of the time with the first-team offense. Mazyck is a former juco transfer who started nine games last season. Shelley-Smith is a former tight end who made the switch to offensive tackle last season.
