He’s not there yet, won’t start in the opener, and in fact is one of two players listed on second team at one cornerback position, so there is a chance Corione Harris won’t be on the field for long stretches early in the season.

Yet, Harris was rated higher in high school than any Kansas recruit since websites started ranking the top 100 players, so he obviously has a lot of potential.

Most cornerbacks this early in their careers are doing too much thinking about technique and where they’re supposed to be on the field and aren’t yet playing with free minds. Once Harris reaches the point where he’s reacting and not thinking so much, he could make a big impact.

Nobody describes him as a freak athlete, just a good one. He also has a reputation for liking to hit, so the ingredients are all there. He just needs time.

Ratings and potential never won one single game....anywhere!

I’ve seen my share of highly rated kids ending up like a day old beer in the fridge.
