Daniel Harris de-commits from Georgia football

Georgia is back down to 20 commitments. Miami (Fla.) Gulliver Prep four-star cornerback Daniel Harris de-committed from Georgia on Monday. Penn State is the program with momentum in his recruitment after hosting him on an official visit on June 24, but Georgia will continue to recruit Harris to potentially get him back in the class. Harris initially committed to Georgia on July 1 after also taking official visits to Michigan (June 3), Ohio State (June 10), and Georgia (June 17). The 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect is considered the nation’s No. 154 overall prospect, No. 18 cornerback, and No. 37 overall recruit in the state of Florida per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.

Georgia has cornerback commitments from Phenix City (Ala.) Central five-star AJ Harris, Las Vegas Bishop Gorman four-star Justyn Rhett, and Charlotte (NC) Providence Day School four-star Chris Peal.

“They just won a national championship,” Harris told 247Sports Southeast Analyst Andrew Ivens. “Coach [Kirby] Smart knows how to coach. Coach Frank [Brown], I have had a great relationship with him. They just know how to win and produce and develop players.”

Below is the 247Sports Scouting report for Harris, with a player comparison of Joey Porter Jr..

A developmental cornerback prospect with the tools and traits that NFL front offices covet these days. Measured in at just under 6-foot-2, 180 pounds spring before senior season. More importantly, came in with a 78-inch wingspan. Also has a 10.74 in the 100-meter dash to boost. Still figuring things out as an outside corner, but has progressed immensely from a technical standpoint since he first emerged on the national recruiting scene as a thin, wiry freshman. Has experience working in both man and off-man coverage. At his best when he can simply stick his hip on a wide receiver and run with them down the sidelines. Does a nice job of tracking the football through the air and understands how to put himself in position to make a play on the ball. Not afraid to lower his helmet and hit someone, but must improve as an open field tackler, especially if he hopes to take down college-sized running backs and tight ends in the open field. Must also add some functional strength if he’s going to be asked to press on Saturdays. Should be viewed as a high-upside project that will need some time to mature on a college roster before he’s ready to make an impact at college football’s highest levels. Likely to find the most success in an aggressive defensive scheme that wants its cornerbacks to bump and run out on the perimeter. Rare height/speed combo could have him playing on Sundays one day.
