Early years

In his career with Alexandria Senior High School, Harris established a school record with 21 interceptions returning 9 for touchdowns. He tallied 81 tackles and intercepted 10 passes as a junior, recorded 74 tackles and intercepted 11 passes, returning four for touchdowns his senior season, and led the school to consecutive state playoffs appearances. He was named All-CENLA defensive MVP his senior year, and garnered national attention.

ESPN.com ranked him the No. 11 safety in the nation. Scout.com ranked him the No. 14 Safety and No. 62 player in the Southeast. Rivals.com declared him the No. 5 safety in the nation, while CollegeFootballNews.com ranked him the No. 7 safety in the nation. Harris was courted by several major Division I College football programs (Texas A&M, Michigan, Louisiana State, and Nebraska to name a few), before choosing the Oklahoma Sooners over the Michigan Wolverines.[1] [2][3]

College career

As a true freshman in 2005, Harris started the Kansas State and Texas games at free safety. When he and true freshman Reggie Smith teamed up as defensive backs against the Wildcats, it marked only the second time in school history that two freshmen had started in the secondary. He logged seven tackles and one sack against KSU and seven tackles against the Longhorns with one forced fumble.

Harris was recognized on the All-Big 12 second team by the coaches as a sophomore in 2006. He spent much of the season in the nickel role (only coming in for five-defensive back sets) before taking over as free safety for the last three games. He led OU with four interceptions, two of which came at Oregon and finished fourth on the team in total tackles with 68, and was credited with 2.5 sacks. Harris broke up two passes against Oklahoma State and Nebraska and had a career high eight tackles at Oregon.

Against North Texas in the 2007 opener, Harris had 2 tackles for loss, broke up a pass, collected a sack for -10 yards, forced a fumble, and returned a Daniel Meager interception 25 yards for a touchdown.[4][5][6] Against the Miami Hurricanes in week 2, Harris had 2.5 more tackles for loss and forced another fumble.[7]
