Rising Georgia Tech redshirt sophomore Peje Harris recorded his first career reception as a depth piece in the Jackets offense.
Wide receiver Peje Harris made his on-the-field debut for Georgia Tech in 2019 after redshirting his true freshman season on The Flats. The former three-star recruit out of Newnan, Georgia has great size at 6-foot-3 and 212-pounds but still needs a bit more development before seeing consistent playing time.
Harris in 2019 appeared in eight games for the Yellow Jackets but only recorded a reception in one game, that being against Virginia Tech. His reception against the Hokies was his first career reception and went for a total of 4-yards. Outside of that, Harris saw some other time on offense throughout the season but appeared mostly on special teams for the Jackets.
In 2020, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Harris to have a slightly bigger role in the Yellow Jackets offense but he would still for the most part remain a depth piece in the Jackets receiver core. He’ll most likely still be seen more on special teams but he should also have more than just one reception in 2020 on offense for the Jackets. Harris has potential down the road to be a quality playmaker in the Jackets offense but still needs another year or two of development before becoming seeing that uptick in playing time. Harris will need some patience but the patience could pay off for the talented wideout. This will undoubtedly be a big offseason for the Georgia native.
