Florida, Georgia, South Carolina among contenders for 3-star WR Jatavious Harris

Jatavious Harris

Three-star wide receiver Jatavious Harris has more than 20 offers already, including a handful from SEC schools. Does he have any favorites?

“I have a few favorites, like South Carolina and Miami,” Harris told GN. “The communication I have with the players and the coaches really stands out with both schools.”

Miami and South Carolina were the first programs to offer Harris, in November.

Harris has received 14 offers since the start of 2017 alone. Why so many offers in such a short amount of time?

“I have no idea,” Harris said. “I guess when somebody pulls the trigger on an offer, somebody else will also pull the trigger and it goes from there.”

Harris (6 feet 3, 184 pounds), from Milledgeville (Ga.) Baldwin, has offers from numerous SEC programs, including Florida, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee.

“I’m a wide receiver who can stretch the field and can catch the ball really good,” Harris said. “I can do different things on the field with my talent.

“I think I have good speed, size and hands.”

Harris is looking for a few things from his eventual choice.

“First is the education,” Harris said. “Then, it’s the communication I have with the coaches and playing time — where will I get the playing time first and will I be able to play my freshman year.”

Harris, who also runs track, says it’s been hard to find time to take visits to different programs.

“I don’t have any visits set yet because it’s track season and I have track meets every weekend, so it’s hard to schedule visits,” he said.

Harris says Florida and Georgia are beginning to pick up communication with him.

“I’ve talked to the coaches down there (at Florida), and me and a few other prospects in my class are talking about going to take a visit down there together and see how it is,” he said. “I visited Georgia a few weeks ago and they showed a lot of love.”

The most recent offers for Harris have come in the past three weeks, from East Carolina and Oregon State.
