Junior highlights:

Scout evaluation:

Harris is a big and strong offensive line prospect who is used to having his way at the point of attack. Once he is able to get his hands on a defensive lineman he is almost certainly going to win that battle and more often than not with some authority.

He spent a lot of time playing right tackle in 2015 and showed the ability to move in space and pass block effectively. He will be an interior offensive lineman in college and because he can run block and pass block effectively he should not be a liability in any one particular area.

Harris shows the ability to get out and make block in space on the second level, but the quicker linebackers in the college game could potentially give him some issues. -- Greg Powers, Scout national analyst

More analysis: As a sophomore in 2014, Harris helped Aledo to a 15-1 record and the Texas Class 5A Division I state title, teaming with older brother, 2016 center Hunter Harris as the cornerstones of Aledo's powerful offensive line.

A year ago, the duo helped Aledo to a Class 5A Division I state semifinals, where the Bobcats fell to state runner-up Mansfield Lake Ridge. Aledo finished the season 13-2, giving AHS a 28-3 record during the past two seasons.

Harris is a physical, mauling interior offensive line prospect who thrives in the running game. He jumped on the TCU offer early and has remained solid to the Horned Frogs since pledging in late spring 2015. He's TCU's lone offensive line commit so far in the 2017 cycle and ranks second-highest among the Frogs' commitments behind only top 100 quarterback Shawn Robinson.
