Scouting Report, Video Highlights and Predictions for 4-Star ATH Treon Harris

0 of 6


    A wild card in Florida State's recruiting class is 4-star athlete Treon Harris. He's a versatile player who has a bright future in Tallahassee.

    Head coach Jimbo Fisher will have to huddle with his coaching staff before Harris' arrival in northern Florida. Yet, the group could fight over which side of the ball the talented prospect plays on.

    Harris' potential, along with having several career options on the field, warrants a more in-depth look.

    Player evaluations are based on review of tape at Scout.comRivals247Sports and ESPNU.

Who Is Treon Harris?

1 of 6


    Hailing from Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, Harris is the son of legendary Florida high school football coach Tim "Ice" Harris, and brother of Houston Texans cornerback Brandon Harris.

    As a quarterback for the Tornadoes, Harris threw for 1,892 yards and 26 touchdowns this season, per MaxPreps. He also rushed for 547 yards and eight scores. Harris participated in The Opening this summer, plus he will play in the U.S. Army All-American game in January.

    He is 66th in Rivals 250, 125th in the 247Sports composite rankings, 140th in the Scout 300 and 180th in the ESPNU 300

Treon Harris' Scouting Report: Strengths

2 of 6


    Harris is a tremendous athlete who has great speed and quickness. Where some prospects need time to build into their speed, Harris has the sudden ability to explode from the jump.

    As a quarterback, he displays solid vision to read defenses. Harris is quick with his drops, plus he doesn't waste much time when setting his feet in the pocket. He has good arm strength, but Harris is at his best when his timing and rhythm are in sync with his receivers, as that's when his accuracy is nearly exceptional.

    Blessed with natural mobility and athleticism, he has no issues attacking the edges to make throws on the run. If things break down in the pocket, Harris can easily escape rushers to make dazzling plays with his legs. 

    If he doesn't play quarterback at Florida State, Harris still projects to have success as a receiver, cornerback or safety. Also, look for him to offer his services as a returner on special teams. 

Treon Harris' Scouting Report: Weaknesses

3 of 6


    The obvious issue with Harris as a quarterback is his size, as he is only 5'11" and 180 pounds. His lack of height is why he likely would be better off at another position in Tallahassee.

    While Harris has good arm strength, it's not great. He could struggle to consistently attack the third level of the field, especially with the speed Florida State's receivers usually have. 

    If and when he is moved to another position, the coach of that unit likely will have to deal with Harris' disappointment for an indefinite amount of time, which could hinder his development at his new spot. 

Treon Harris' Senior Highlights

4 of 6

    Harris led Booker T. Washington High School to a huge victory in August over Norcross High School of Georgia, which is home to 5-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter.

    The 4-star prospect was almost like a surgeon with several of his throws in this game. His athleticism in the pocket was also on full display.

More Highlights of Treon Harris' Senior Season

    Carter wasn't the only elite prospect Harris faced this year. The Tornadoes played Miami Central this fall, and 5-star running back Dalvin Cook and 4-star speedster Joseph Yearby play for the Rockets.

    This is a clip of the game's highlights.

    Harris is going to get an initial look as a quarterback by Florida State. However, he will eventually be moved to receiver.

    After getting over the disappointment of the switch, Harris' sudden quickness and speed will help him become a starter on the perimeter for the Seminoles. He's too good of an athlete and football player not to make an impact at some point in his career.
