Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totals of 71/1/9. Finished his junior season with 66 tackles after 81 as a sophomore.
Positives: Hard-hitting safety best defending the run. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to get off blocks, and nicely flows to the ball-carrier. Displays solid range in centerfield, effective facing the action and shows good route recognition. Solid open- field tackler. Possesses a burst of straight-line speed.
Negatives: Marginal ball skills and struggles in man coverage with his back to the play. Does too much face guarding and does not correctly positions himself against opponents.
Analysis: Harris has been a solid player for Temple the past two seasons yet really does not translate well to the next level. His best opportunity is as a conventional strong safety or a defense that would place him in a zone system.
