Miami Hurricanes Football: Jacory Harris' Future as a NFL QB Is Dim
There was a time that scouts were high on Jacory Harris as a future NFL QB. He has the physical tools. Harris is not one of those mobile QBs with concerns about height. He stands 6'4", though he is a bit thin, it wasn't considered a major concern. Harris does move well but Harrris' issues seem to be mental and off the field.
Now in 2011, instead of solidifying a Heisman run as some predicted two years ago, the senior QB is just trying to re-establish himself as the starting QB. Harris is coming off a one-man suspension for admittedly taking approximately $140 worth of benefits from jailed Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro.
It is a shame that just about every Hurricanes article seems to mention a man that has never worn the uniform or coached from the sidelines. This is the case because of the potentially program devastating allegations Shapiro has made against the Hurricanes.
Harris hasn't shown consistency when dealing with zone coverages and he has struggled with accuracy as well. Right now the environment is not a winning one, nor is it conducive for developing the areas that Harris is lacking.
Harris will get his first start against a team in a similar situation as the Hurricanes when he faces the Ohio St. Buckeyes. The Buckeyes also represent a decently formidable defense as well.
That said, this is a winnable game for Miami. It is also a game that Jacory Harris can hopefully reestablish himself as a quality collegiate QB and moreover a NFL prospect.
He and the Hurricanes' program has a ways to go to where they could have been already at this point. Though his NFL future looks questionable, he does have a better chance at righting the ship than the Canes program does.
