WR LaDontae Harris
Litchfield High School
The Stats: As a junior at Litchfield High School, La'Donte Harris brought in 36 catches for 720 yards and 8 touchdowns. Harris ended his senior season with 22 receptions for 327 yards, 830 rushing yards on 112 attempts on the ground, and 21-of-47 passing for combined 21 touchdowns. Overall, he amassed over 5,000 all-purpose yards playing wide receiver, quarterback, and running back during his career.
Notes: Harris was one of four wide receivers that signed with Clemson in the 2004 class. Recruited by assistant coach Dabo Swinney, Harris committed to the Tigers over Ole Miss, Alabama, Mississippi State, and South Carolina.
Strength: Simply put, La'Donte Harris will be one of the top athletes signed in the 2003 recruiting class. He has excellent footwork, great hands, and a knack for making the big play.
Why Clemson? "I was just glad to make the decision when I did," said Harris. "The first time I met with Coach Bowden, he was real up front with me about everything and that was important. I like the campus there a lot, it's real big, and so is the stadium. The first time I stepped on the field, Coach Swinney asked me how it would feel to hear La'Donte Harris going in for a touchdown. That was great. The main focus for me right now is just getting ready to play up there. I am hoping to see some early playing time, but I know I've got a lot of work to do off the field to get there."
Interesting Tidbit: Most of his teammates and his family just call him 'Donte.' Harris was also voted as the runner up to the Class 3-A Back of the Year during his senior season when he excelled as a quarterback, wide receiver, and a running back in the Litchfield offense.
Coach Swinney Says: "We need playmakers here, and La'Donte is one of those guys that we feel like can step in and help us in that role," said coach Dabo Swinney. "With Derrick Hamilton leaving, it was imperative for us to bring in a kid like La'Dontae, because he'll help fulfill that role that Derrick left vacant in the future."
