Harris’s commitment is the sixth overall in the 2019 class for the Commodores. The three-star recruit is considered the #73 safety prospect in the class and the #33 prospect in the state of Alabama according to the 247 Sports composite rating, and he currently ranks as the highest-rated player in Vanderbilt’s 2019 class. Rivals also rates him as a three-star and the #38 prospect in Alabama — though Rivals considers him a cornerback.
Harris also had offers from Memphis, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Virginia, and Wake Forest among 23 scholarship offers. Here is his highlight tape:
As usual, the Yellowhammer State is a fertile recruiting ground for Vanderbilt, as Harris is the Commodores’ second commitment in the class from Alabama, joining QB Jamil Muhammad.
