Clemson visit makes impression on in-state star

2020 RB Rahjai Harris returned to Clemson last weekend and spoke to TCI about his experience

Along with prospects in the 2018 and 2019 classes, Clemson hosted several relevant 2020 recruits for The Citadel game in Death Valley last Saturday.

Among the 2020 visitors was one of the Palmetto State’s best young talents, Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes running back Rahjai Harris.

“It was great,” Harris said of his visit. “I love going to Clemson.”

Harris (5-11, 170) also visited Clemson for the Auburn game in September. But his experience last weekend left a different impression on him.

“This time I felt like I could see myself playing there,” he said.

What made Harris feel that way?

“The fan base mostly,” he said. “But also me seeing them come together as one.”

Harris had a chance to spend more time with Clemson coaches while on campus. According to Harris, they had a similar message.

“Same thing really,” Harris said of what he heard. “That an offer is coming and things like that.”

Besides Clemson, the in-state standout is getting interest from South Carolina, Maryland, Ole Miss and Virginia.

Asked what stands out to him the most about Clemson, Harris pointed to the Tigers’ togetherness.

“The best part is that the team is together as one,” he said. “There’s no individual.”

In 11 games as a sophomore this season, Harris rushed 127 times for 759 yards (6.0 average) and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 17 passes for 228 yards and a couple of scores.

Harris made an immediate impact as a freshman last season, with 696 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.
