Harris is the 132nd ranked prospect in America, according to 247 Sports. He is their 8th ranked safety overall and the 5th ranked prospect in North Carolina. Harris is Tennessee’s first defensive back commit of the 2019 class.
The North Carolina native checks in at 6-1, 175 pounds. Harris had 88 tackles last season, 9.5 of which resulted in a loss. His lone crystal ball projection favored North Carolina, which is where Harris last visited. Harris last visited Knoxville on March 19th. Today, he is a Vol.
Check out what his high school head coach told Volquest.com about his ceiling.
“He’s long and and lean,” Havelock head coach Caleb King said. “His best years are ahead of him. He’s gained almost twenty pounds this off-season. He’s right at 180 pounds. He’s done a great job getting stronger. We didn’t have him in the state title game last year because he broke his collarbone in our second round playoff game. He tried to play through it which tells you how tough he is.” (Via Volquest.com)
Harris is now Tennessee’s second highest rated commit, trailing only five-star tackle Wanya Morris.
