CanesInSight - Miami targeting 2018 WR Jatavious Harris (Ga.)
  • Miami targeting 2018 WR Jatavious Harris (Ga.)

    DBC-img_0087-jpg


    Although Mark Richt's recruiting pull in the state of Georgia is only tangible with Deejay Dallas and Zalon'tae Hillery at the moment, inroads are already being made with one of the state's top receivers in the 2018 recruiting class, Jatavious Harris (6-3, 185)

    Harris has a plethora of schools on his trail such as Florida, Tennessee, UGA, South Carolina, and Auburn, but only one coach dropped by his school last month -- that was Miami wide receivers coach Ron Dugans.

    "That showed me a lot -- that I'm a priority to them. It means a lot to me and I'm already taking it into consideration," Harris said.

    "He always gives off a good vibe. I've been around him twice and he is always smiling. He's a good mentor and a good coach on-and-off the field," he added.

    Harris visited Miami once from November 4th-6th for the game against Pittsburgh. His next trip to Coral Gables will likely be for Paradise Camp in July.

    Canes 2017 commit Deejay Dallas has been actively recruiting Harris for the 2018 class -- and it seems like it's working.

    "That's my dawg right there. He always gets me pumped up when I talk to him. He told me I have to go out with a bang my senior year and then represent when I'm in Miami," he said.

    Harris on Dallas: "Everybody I talk to about him, loves him. You don't have an option but to respect him."

    Harris added that "education" is an important aspect of his decision for his family and that it will be a "big part" of where he wants to go.

      Sounds like the staff really likes him. And he likes Miami.

      But, also sounds like the bigger schools aren't on him yet.

      IMO, tape isn't overly impressive. Don't think we need to leave SoFla for WRs in 2018.

      Pete, what are your thoughts on him as a potential take at WR in 2018?
      Dont think the issue is Miami leaving SoFla its the SoFla divas leaving Miami

      They get Lingard, Pope, Williams, and Hightower to go with current commits and I don't give a **** who else they get on the offensive side of the ball. They can get 10 2* guys and I'm happy with the offensive haul.

      2018 is all about Stockpiling WRs, DBs, and DL.
      You know full well we aren't getting those guys. At most, maybe one.

      This. I've had just about enough of these 5'7" south Florida three star punks and their "top 4's" and their handlers and their little prima Donna games etc etc

      Part of me would rather take OOS kids at this point.

      I love the canes but these South Florida kids are really hard to root for

      He's showing offers from Florida, South Carolina and Tennessee (as well as some lesser schools)....

      It doesn't sound like he's being overlooked....

      Holloman told this kid on twitter don't commit to Miami, I was going to but didn't and to ask the coaches why he didn't. So we got that going for us which is nice

      Really like this kid. Has some really impressive high-point receptions (1:32, 2:05, 3:39, 4:27, and 4:50 marks) in his junior highlights, he's listed at 6'3", and IIRC his speed/track numbers are phenomenal. Big time athletic upside.

      Would love for him to be apart of the 2018 WR class.
      Can't always tell on film, this is always my first question when asking about skill position players. I too prefer we secure top SoFl talent, but we all know it's easier said than done. Guys gonna leave, plus we have to be a national program and you can't do that by staying local. We have never in the program history cleaned up all the top talent in SoFl at any position. So for those thinking Richt should be able to do it are living in a bubble. The lizards, nolies and bamer have a rich tradition of star SoFl players in the past. Key was always The Canes getting the lions share.

      We don't have to leave, but it'd be very wise to. Simply put, South Florida recruits can NOT be taken at their word. Nor can they be expected to have some affinity for the "hometown" team.

      I am 100% in favor of us recruiting South Florida hard. It's home base, and we'd be fools not to. Top priority, no doubt. However, recruiting WRs from out of state is absolutely in our best interests.

      The advantage we have with Harris is that his OC & his WR's Coach are both big Canes fans...

      I met his WR's Coach, Coach Johnson at the RA Bowl, he was decked out in Canes gear, I asked him briefly about Harris, he told me he absolutely loves Miami & the fact that we were his very first offer when he was an unrated prospect is big with him.

      The key to his recruitment will be continually bringing him down to Miami for UV's... He's recently picked up offers from UGA, UF, South Carolina & Tenn...

      This one should be a layup for Dugans.

      Do we lead? Probably...It sounds like it. But a GA kid never a "layup" with Georgia in the picture.
