Notable: Son of former Gators player Mike “Mud” Harris, who played for coach Steve Spurrier on Florida’s 1996 National Championship team. Received scholarship offers from all of the who’s who of college football. Also made official visits to Florida State, Oklahoma and Texas. Runs the 40-yard in 4.58 seconds and sports a 32-inch vertical. Is strong against the run but is agile enough to defense the pass, even in man coverage. Verbally committed to Florida on Nov. 29, 2012, becoming the 21st pledge of the class. A four-star prospect by national recruiting rankings, he was selected as an Under Armour All-American, but was unable to play due to injury. Made 93 tackles and forced four fumbles as a senior. As a junior, he recorded 93 tackles, 11 pass break-ups, four forced fumbles, four blocked kicks, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries and a pair of special teams touchdowns (one on a kickoff return, another on a blocked punt)

Quotable: “It’s a great place. I talk to coach (Will) Muschamp a lot as he is my position coach. Coach is a great guy and a father figure to me. The great thing about him is he coaches my position, so if I choose Florida instead of having a position and a head coach I would have just one coach. We don’t talk just about football. We talk about life outside of football as well.” — Harris told GatorCountry.com
