Ajene Harris might not play quarterback at San Diego State but the Los Angeles Crenshaw prospect is a special athlete who could contribute on either side of the ball.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect said Friday after leading his team to an overtime victory over Los Angeles Loyola at the Mission Viejo Classic that he was keeping a secret - he had committed to the Aztecs in the last week and finally wanted it known.
"I committed to San Diego State last Saturday," Harris said.
"I actually checked out the campus when I went to their camp. I love the coaches, I love the environment and I really felt San Diego was the best for me."
San Diego State is getting a big-time player in Harris, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect who was dynamic as a dual-threat quarterback for Los Angeles Crenshaw last weekend.
Reports were good in a loss in the season opener to Long Beach (Calif.) Poly and then Harris led his team to a win against Loyola.
Harris ran for what would have been a game-winning touchdown in regulation but the score was controversially called back on a false start penalty. That didn't stop the new San Diego State commit.
In overtime, Harris scored again to end things and prove he's a special athlete who has game-breaking ability.
Quarterback might not be his position in college but Harris is looking forward to a bright future with the Aztecs.
"I'm an athlete," Harris said. "I've been recruited as an athlete. I could play corner or receiver. It felt good to just commit. All the pressure is over and now I can just have a good season."
