WR Peje Harris will officially join the Georgia Tech Football program on Wednesday when he signs his letter of intent.
One of Georgia Tech football’s two wide receiver commitments, wide receiver Peje Harris signed his letter of intent on Wednesday. The Newnan, Georgia native is a composite three-star wide receiver and is considered the 234th best receiver in the 2018 recruiting cycle. He is also the 146th best player in the state of Georgia.
At 6-foot-3, 210-pounds Harris already has great size for a wide receiver at the next level. Harris presents good hands as a wide receiver and is a decent route runner. Speed wise, he doesn’t have blazing speed but enough to get by cornerbacks and other defenders. By being recruited by the Yellow Jackets a wide receiver, Harris obviously has to be a tremendous blocker.
Harris will benefit greatly from a few seasons as a scout team member before breaking into the Jackets receiver rotation.
Harris’s recruitment was rather quiet from start to finish receiving just one known scholarship offer. That lone scholarship offer, of course, was from the Yellow Jackets. Numerous other schools did show interest in Harris but never offered. Some of those schools that showed interest include Boston College, Florida, and Virginia Tech.
Harris is rumored to have committed to the Jackets during last spring but only went official with it early last June. Either way, he was one of the first recruits in the 2018 cycle to commit to the Jackets.
He may not be a highly recruited prospect but Harris still has the potential to be a great asset for the Jackets going forward.
