Isaiah Harris (b. May 14, 1997) is a small, shifty receiver who earned immediate playing time as a true freshman in 2016 and has played in each of his first two seasons in Manhattan.

Harris earned a medical hardship after sustaining a season-ending injury in 2017 and he is again classified a sophomore in 2018. He will contend for more playing time at receiver and as a returner in 2018.

Harris played in five games as a freshman in 2016, hauling in 10 catches for 78 yards, including a six-catch, 46-yard effort against Florida Atlantic.

His six grabs against the Owls tied for the fifth most in school history among freshmen and he also caught three passes for 33 yards at TCU, including a season-long 19-yard reception.

Harris then played in the first four games of 2017, hauling in five catches for 138 yards and one touchdown. He did most of his damage in the season opener against Central Arkansas, hauling in three passes for 118 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown catch.

Against the Bears, Harris teamed with Byron Pringle (121 yards) to give the Wildcats their first double 100-yard receiver game since the end of the 2014 season. He also returned one punt for 8 yards against Charlotte.

Harris played under head coach Aaron Beck at the same high school as current K-State defensive back Kendall Adams, All Saints Episcopal High School, where he was rated as one of the top 100 athletes in the class of 2016 by ESPN.

He earned first-team Southwest Preparatory Conference All-State honors as both a junior and senior.

Harris 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.
