Signing Day Capsule: Brandon Harris

QB Brandon Harris has already enrolled at LSU, but as the rest of the 2014 Class comes to completion, we take a look at what makes Harris one of the top QBs in the country.

Brandon Harris didn't emerge on LSU's radar until the spring of 2013. Before that, he was an unknown in terms of the national QB picture. But once his junior film started to make its rounds, schools from just about every corner of the country came calling for his services. Harris picked up seven offers in the first week of May, but at the time, LSU wanted to get a look at him during camp before they pulled the trigger.

That changed though once Cam Cameron made a trip up to Bossier City to get a look at Harris in person. Cameron left absolutely blown away by Harris and offered him on the spot. From there LSU became one of his seven finalists along with Ohio State, Auburn, Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Baylor. The Tigers eventually landed his commitment on July 18, securing the state's best quarterback since Ryan Perriloux.

Harris has already enrolled as a student at LSU, and he'll begin competing in spring practices when they start in a couple months. Harris, a four-star prospect ranked as the No. 6 QB, has one of the strongest arms in the country with enough athleticism and mobility to make plays with his feet as well.

He fits the mold for what Cameron wants in his quarterback, and even though he's only a freshman, don't rule him out in the competition to replace Zach Mettenberger. Harris still has some things to work on in his release and throwing mechanics, but the raw tools are there and he has plenty of potential.
