Central High School (PA) defensive back/running back Rajih Harris performed at a high enough standard this season to catch the eye of many different college coaches. The rising senior, who stands at 5'8", weighs 155 pounds, and runs a 4.48 40, has received interest from schools like North Carolina, Maryland, Penn State, and East Carolina.
"I had a good year as a defensive back," he said. "And got a couple plays in the backfield. I feel better as a running back, that is my natural position, but I will play wherever the coach plays me."
Harris describes himself as a hard hitter with great footwork, and says his greatest strength as a safety his speed. The recruit would like to work on his jumping ability and get even faster.
"[Schools have said] they like my speed," he said. "[Also] my footwork, and they said I have loose hips."
The safety has visited Maryland, and said he is fond of the school.
"I've been to their campus on an unofficial visit," he said. "I like their weight room and the fans at Maryland. I have no concerns about Maryland."
Harris was awarded "hit of the game" in Central's game against Lincoln, and says that he hopes "to accomplish more goals that I have set for myself for the upcoming season. I am looking forward to playing a major role in helping my team win a public league championship."
With Harris anchoring the defense, that task is made much easier for Central.
