AJ Harris: Guided by faith, the elite 2023 CB prospect won’t slow play his decision

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry adds to the buzz on 2023 CB prospect A.J. Harris after his showstopping performance at the Under Armour All-American Atlanta camp this past Sunday. 

There is an urge to open this AJ Harris piece by talking about his jewelry. There are two chains to identify in his story. This Harris guy really is different.

That’s not because he spent his youth living abroad. Or he can already bench press 225 pounds 10 times at 16. And that he timed a 4.64 laser in the 40 as a Class of 2023 prospect at Sunday’s Under Armour camp.

The first DawgNation profile on AJ Harris hit the following notes: 1) His time as an early Kirby Smart football camp star; 2) His relationship with 2023 Georgia commit Pearce Spurlin III and; 3) A “meaningful” and “speechless” offer from UGA.

Georgia offered back on Feb. 17. It already feels like a long time ago.

Here’s a quick offer snapshot:

  • First offer: Kansas (Dec. 15)
  • Scholarships that followed his first: Akron, South Alabama, Michigan State, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, Mississippi State, Boston College, Utah, Penn State and Oklahoma. 
  • Offers since his UGA offer: Michigan, Arizona State, Auburn, Maryland, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Miami and Virginia Tech. 

That prompted his rise across the web and social media. Those schools saw his 2020 season film and training tapes. The buzz began to swirl across every digital platform.

What Harris did amid a stocked talent pool at the Under Armour camp took his name from virtual to reality. He really was already that good.

This wasn’t potential, but a consistent upper echelon bank of performance reps at his takeoff camp.

  • Offers since his showing at Under Armour on Sunday: Under Armour All-American Game, All-American Bowl, Texas A&M, FSU, LSU and Ohio State.
