"It feels good to be back," said Harris. "It's been a long time, I've had my minor set backs, but I'm healthy this year. It's a new year and it feels great to be back."
The reshirt senior missed out on a few games last season due to injuries and he was academically ineligible to play in the Sun Bowl, and says the time away from the field has had an impact on his mind set.
"I got one chance and that's it," said Harris. "This is my last go around, so I'm going to have to give it all I got."
In the first series of the scrimmage, Harris missed a tackle on Nelson Agholor--who was eventually taken down by Josh Shaw. Harris acknowledges that he has areas to improve upon and says he is focused on making those changes before the season kicks off.
"I had a decent day, but there is always room for improvement," said Harris. "I missed a couple of tackles, so there is always room for improvement."
Specifically, Harris says he is working on open-field tackling, man coverage and "just knowing the defense a little bit better, so [they] can play faster."
Harris is now working under USC's new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast.
"I love him, I love his mentality," said Harris. "He comes out to the ball and just let's us lock up on the ends, so I love him."
Week One of Fall Camp is almost over for the Trojans and before they kick off on Aug. 29 against Hawaii, Harris hopes to prove a few things to the coaches.
"I ready to play, I can do whatever they need me to do," said Harris. "I'm here for the team."
