Running back Andre Harris (6-0, 210, 4.38) from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft will be one to watch this fall. He has all the tools necessary for success as he has good size and is improving his overall speed and quickness.
Harris recently ran a 4.38 in the 40 at a SPARQ team challenge and he benched 185-pounds, 22 times. He also has recorded a 31.2 vertical jump. His best vertical was 36-inches.
No one has to tell that a 4.38 is moving for a man of any size and when you take into account Harris' size that makes it all the more impressive.

One of the things that Harris wanted to work on this off-season was his speed and by the looks of things it looks like it paid off. Though 4.38 is his fastest time, Harris told Rivals.com that he is now running a consistent 4.5. That is still moving for a big back.
Harris has recently received his first offer from San Diego State. He is also getting recruiting attention from USC, Cal and Louisville.
Harris wants to concentrate on his senior season before he takes any trips and he's very hungry for the season to start.
"My goal for this season is to rush for 2,000 yards and help Taft win a City Championship," Harris said.
Harris kind of got lost in the shuffle this past spring due to being mishandled as a junior. That is all behind him and he is out to prove that he should be included among the Golden State's best running backs.
Harris will be one to definitely keep an eye on this fall.
