The 6’4”, 230-pound pass-rusher is from Riverdale Baptist in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Harris becomes Penn State’s 17 commitment and first from the state of Maryland this recruiting cycle. Harris is ranked as the 20th rated EDGE in the country and 5th best player in Maryland, as well as one of the top 250 players in the country in the 247sports composite rankings.

Back on May 1st, Harris released a Top 10 of Penn State, Tennessee, Florida, Texas A&M, Syracuse, Michigan, South Carolina, Maryland, Virginia Tech and Michigan State.
