Mike's Take: WVU DE commit
BlueGoldNews.com (WVU's scout site) reported Wednesday that Bartram Trail standout defensive end Korey Harris pledged to the Mountaineers. What to Like: At 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, Harris passes the look test. He's a big, lean kid with a frame that should enable him to bulk up and add a lot of good weight. He was very active as a junior on the D-Line. He made a lot of plays off the edge in opposing backfields and showed good take off coming off the edge. Bartram Trail was one of the better teams in the greater Jacksonville area last season and Harris was one of their top players. 6-5 pass rushing defensive ends who get off the ball and make plays in the backfield like Harris does aren't too common. What may concern you: He will need to add weight and strength and right now can get pushed around a bit by bigger, stronger offensive linemen. If they get into his body, it can be over in a hurry. He's also not the greatest athlete around. You can't just put him on an island and expect him to beat the guy in front of him with quickness and moves and things like that. He's also still raw and learning the game and how to utilize his strengths. Bottom Line: West Virginia has been active in Florida lately and in Harris they're getting a quality player from a quality program. He was recruited like a three-star prospect and gives the Mountaineers a talented pass rusher whose best days should be ahead of him.
