“Previously committed to FSU, Harris was another good-looking defensive lineman. He started off slow, but came alive during 1-on-1s as he won more reps than he lost. The most promising thing about Harris might be his malleable frame. as it could meet a variety of different needs with its length.”
Below is his initial 247Sports Scouting report from February 2022:
“A seven-forward defender with some juice. He tips the scales at about 6-foot-4, 235 pounds, but has the frame to eventually carry 265 pounds or more. First-step quickness is what separates him from the pack.” on Friday nights as he does a good job of anticipating quick counts and is always ready to pounce on a ball carrier or clean up a pocket. More of a fine player than a power based player at this stage in his development , but he should eventually get better at that point of attack as he adds strength and his body continues to mature.He spent most of the junior season working as a foot running back in a 3-4 front, but occasionally reached into the dirt. He found success in both roles with a total of seven sacks in nine games. He also has some experience getting back into coverage, and has even shown on the 7-on-7 circuit that he can create some separation as a the closed. He probably needs a few years to adjust to the physicality of the college game. He also needs to continue to progress/evolve. He’s a pass-rusher. However, he does have some of the traits required to emerge as a Power 5 impact player given his initial burst, above-average reach, and ankle flexibility. He’s likely to settle in as an outside backer in an aggressive defensive system that wants him to go after the quarterback. He might also be able to do things like Mike in certain schemes, as he has shown the ability to not only go down the hill and close gaps, but also get out of hashes. Size and running ability will have him on the special teams coordinator’s radar.”
