One of the hottest prospects in Southern California is running back/cornerback Cary Harris (6-1, 180, 4.4) from Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame. Harris has a total of eight know offers and the word is there could be many more on the way. Notre Dame has been a hot destination spot for college recruiters this spring.
Harris is a standout on both sides of the ball and has the talent to play on either side of the ball on the collegiate level.
“Some colleges like Cary as a running back while other schools like him as a corner,” Notre Dame head coach Kevin Rooney said. “Cary is okay with either.”
That Harris doesn’t care where he plays on the next level speaks volumes on him as a team player.
Harris was selected first-team all-league, first-team all-CIF, first-team all-state and Student Sports All-American as a cornerback for his performance as a junior.
As a running back, Harris rushed for 1,150 yards and scored 17 touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, Harris 73 total tackles, 57 of them solo, 16 assists, six pass breakups, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and one fumble recovery.
How many cornerbacks do you know that has three forced fumbles on his resume?
The scouting report on Harris is he has very flexible hips and very quick feet. He also has good strength for a young man his size with a 280 pound bench.
A good around athlete, Harris also runs track. He participates in the in the 400, 200 and this track season he do the 100 and the 4x100.
Harris has super speed. He has been timed in the 100 at 10.4 with a hand held watch and 10.7 during electronically.
“Name the school and they are interested in Cary,” Rooney said. “He’s really a great young man.”
“Cary has a great work ethic and he’s a great competitor.”
Harris has known offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, UCLA, USC, Washington State, Duke and Notre Dame.
At this time Harris is very open to colleges.
