AT A GLANCE

An Under Armour All-America Game participant, Harris opted for LSU over Alabama. Harris took his announcement down to the wire between the programs, visiting them both over the final two weeks of January. He picked off nine passes during his three-year high school career. Harris is the player who, in July, held a commitment ceremony with hats for LSU, Ole Miss and Alabama before announcing his commitment to ... his high school.

HONORS AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Landed on All-Metro and all-state teams and was named the Baton Rouge area’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player. … Harris had 66 tackles, 25 assists, three interceptions and three forced fumbles as a senior.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

“I think Todd Harris gives you the ability to play him at safety or cornerback, but I think he showed at the Under Armour game that he can really thrive as a nickelback, (and) LSU plays plenty of nickel. Landing him gives you some depth at that nickel position and someone who can play it well.” ­— 247Sports’ Shea Dixon
