OK, I had some things come up in REAL LIFE the last week or so, so I apologize for the temporary departure of this countdown feature. I believe that is all behind me now, though, so we now will return again to our regularly scheduled programming.
I will attempt to catch up on the players from the missing 10 days by interspersing them throughout upcoming afternoons as time and scheduling allow, so please watch for those. Again, my apologies for dropping off the radar, but it simply was not possible for me to write these with the challenges I was facing. And we'll just leave it at that.
Position: Wide Receiver
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Isaiah Harris (b. May 14, 1997) is a recently graduated wide receiver who is likely to redshirt in 2016, given the possible depth at the position that was apparent in the spring game.
Last year's No. 86, Dan Harris Jr., changed numbers, so I thought another Harris should "inherit the mantle."
Isaiah Harris played under head coach Aaron Beck at All Saints Episcopal High School, where he was rated as one of the top 100 athletes in the class of 2016 by ESPN.
Harris earned first-team Southwest Preparatory Conference All-State honors as both a junior and senior.
He helped the Saints to earn a 10-1 record as a senior by leading the team with 68 receptions for 1,153 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also rushed 16 times for 105 yards and another score.
Harris tallied 38 catches for 920 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior, while also rushing for 133 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. He also participated in track and field, in which he was a first-team all-state honoree.
The freshman attended the same high school as current K-State defensive back Kendall Adams. Harris' recruiting film below appears to show a speedy athlete with some pretty good hands, so I won't rule out his playing entirely:
