Other Offers: Maryland, Richmond, West Virginia

Notes:  His greatest strength is in his legwork - he's aggressive and has the ability to cut, juke, and pretty much do anything to avoid the defender. That said, reports indicate that he'll most likely be used on the defensive side of the ball. ESPN says, "Harris has some redeeming qualities, but we feel he may be a better fit for non-BCS level programs." What do they know? Harris will most likely end up as a cornerback for Virginia. He was named to the Richmond Times-Dispatch's All-Metro Defense his senior year.

Quotables

"Me and the other defensive backs met with Coach West and Coach Poindexter. It is a system that I feel comfortable in and a scheme I think that I can be successful in as a cornerback, which is what UVa is recruiting me to play. It is defense that showcases taller corner and one that I feel I fit well into."
