In high school, Harris had 13 scholarship offers and ultimately chose the Gamecocks before his senior season as the 68th best player and 45th best running back in Georgia according to 247sports.

With him becoming draft-eligible after this year, Harris can forego his final year of college eligibility and enter his name into the 2022 NFL Draft.

His performance this upcoming season could hold major ramifications on his decision and draft stock.
