De’Vante Harris

Harris was another high rated prospect for the class, coming in as the 144th ranked prospect on ESPN’s top 150 and the 11th ranked corner back in the nation. The undersized cover man came to campus with a high ceiling that wasn’t ultimately tapped until his senior year when defensive coordinator John Chavis made his way to College Station.

After spending majority of his first three years on campus being picked on by SEC offenses, Harris’s work ethic never faded and it propelled him to a memorable senior year that saw him make plays all over the field for the Aggie defense.

Despite being an easy scapegoat for what was at times an abysmal defensive unit for the maroon and white, Harris walked away as a four year contributor and a vocal leader for his team.

Career Stats: 116 tackles (7.5 for loss), 5 interceptions
