The first day of the Will Muschamp Football Camp Tuesday produced commitment #15 for the Gamecocks 2019 class in RB Kevin Harris (5-10 231) of Hinesville, GA. USC became his first Power 5 offer and Harris did not hesitate to accept.
“I had to come run a fast forty and I did. It all happened. I had a great day today. I had to earn it,” Harris said. “I spoke with Coach Muschamp in his office after the camp was over and he offered me a scholarship. It’s a great school with great coaches. They think I’m a complete running back but I’ve got to work on my top end speed.”
Harris admitted his head was spinning a little bit after offering and committing.
“I feel good about it. It’s a dream come true,” he said. “Basically, it’s (recruiting) almost over. Still going to look at some options. Army really likes me a lot.” Harris’ father, who was with him at the camp, is retired military.
Harris also holds reported offers from Air Force, Army, Navy, Cornell, Middle Tennessee, Tulane and Wofford. He reportedly impressed the Gamecock coaches with his speed in camp and that was one of the reason for the offer.
According to statistics compiled for MaxPreps, last season Harris ranked 16th in rushing in Georgia with 1690 yards averaging nearly 6 yards per carry. He also scored 16 touchdowns.
Harris is the first running back commitment for the Gamecocks’ 2018 class.
