Overcoming a severe injury: Entering his senior season at Wichita South High School, Harris was a top athlete and highly sought-after football recruit, with several Power Five schools showing interest. But early in his senior season, Harris took a cleat to the stomach while attempting a tackle. At first, he didn’t think the damage was severe, but later that night he was taken to the hospital and rushed into emergency surgery. He had ruptured his intestine in two places, and it was so severe that doctors told him if he hadn’t come to the hospital that night, he could have died. Needless to say, his high school football career ended abruptly, and interest from those Power Five schools suddenly disappeared. Even Harris thought his playing days could be over. But Illinois State stuck with him. Harris joined ISU on scholarship in 2013 and took a redshirt season, before before returning to game action for the first time in ’14. He would go on to play in 49 career games for the Redbirds and earn All-American recognition, before being selected in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
