"Monday night I'm going home and seeing Florida State get the win," Harris said after a recent East practice at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. "As a quarterback, you have to read the defense and take what they give you. I'm excited to see what they're going to go. In watching the game, I'm watching the quarterback, but I'm also watching every other position. I'm watching the game and lovin' it."
Harris, who starred at Miami Booker T. Washington, is at the U.S. Army game as an athlete. He will line up at receiver and play some "Wildcat" quarterback, which feeds off his position as a zone read quarterback in high school.
It is also the position he plans to play at Florida State, and he isn't bothered by the fact the Seminoles also have Pittsburgh Central Catholic quarterback J.J. Consentino committed in the class.
"I was recruited by some schools for quarterback, and some schools defensive back," Harris said. "Florida State is a great school, a great program, and it's not too far away from my home. They gave me a chance to go out there and play quarterback and prove people wrong."
Harris threw for more than 1,600 yards with 26 touchdowns and three interceptions this season. He also rushed for nearly 600 yards and eight touchdowns.
"I picture me and Jameis as the same, but different sizes," Harris said. "I'm going to pick up where he left off and go in there and learn from Jameis and learn from coach Jimbo (Fisher)."
