Harris chose the Pitt over Maryland, Rutgers and South Florida
St. Peters Preparatory School finished the 2006 season with an outstanding 11-1 record. The Marauders were defeated by Don Bosco Preparatory School to win the New Jerse Group IV non-public school championship. Harris rushed for 1,445 yards and scored 18 touchdowns this season. As a junior, he rushed for 1,400 yards and scored 22 touchdowns in nine games.
"Pitt offered me everything I wanted athletically and academically. The Panthers need a big back and I plan on going into camp in top shape and pushing for playing time."
Harris finalized his comments by stating, "I'm very happy with my decision. I want to give the Pitt football program everything I have to make it better."
Scout.com ranks Harris a "three-star" recruit and the 55th best running back in the nation.
"It feels good to be a Panther."
