NU Sports/Northwestern Football

Matthew Harris (5-11, 170) WR/CB

Harris played a lot of receiver in high school but will be playing cornerback for NU. He has a lot of athleticism to compete at corner and has the ability to stay with most speedy receivers. He does a very nice job of reading the quarterbacks eyes and making a play. Harris is also a solid tackler and would be suited well as a gunner on special teams. He might need a year to polish off his coverage skills but he could become very effective in the zone. Also interesting to note that he ran the Wildcat at his high school.
