Name: Maurice Harris
Hometown: Homestead, Florida
High School: Homestead High School
NOTES: Physically, Harris is one of the most impressive linebackers you will find. He has outstanding quickness and athleticism, and this year he hopes to showcase his talents for Homestead (FL) High.
After starting as a sophomore at Homestead, Harris transferred to a school in Georgia where he lived with his mom. He's back at Homestead for his senior season and has the coaches very excited. He starred at middle linebacker this spring for Homestead, but he projects as a weakside linebacker or strong safety on the next level.
Harris already has offers from NC State, Florida, Auburn, and Mississippi, and more are sure to follow with a strong senior season. Harris teams up with Jameil Farrington and Alphonso Bryant to form a strong nucleus at Homestead.
SCOUTING REPORT: "Maurice Harris is a very instinctive linebacker that closes very well on the ball and does a great job in space for pass coverage. His tackling form could work on getting his head across, but any time he touches his man Harris will bring him to the ground. Harris reads plays well while reacting correctly and quickly. His size is a concern, standing just over six feet and under 200 pounds, but he can play strong safety or linebacker." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Miller Safrit
