We are learning that Demetrius Harris the top pass rusher from the HBCU is leaving college early. Harris was granted an additional year of college to come back to Fort Valley State as a red-shirt senior but he is electing to leave school early and join Saskatchewan of the CFL.

Harris was a Cliff Harris Award Finalist last season, and one of the best pure pass rushers in the HBCU.

We found out today, when we listed Harris a top 51 Division 2 prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. Harris contacted us and let us know that he will not be going to school his senior year and has signed a contract with the Roughriders.

Harris is a 6020, 235 pound edge rusher who quarterbacks feared in 2019. He racked up 13.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss in just 10 games. This is a huge get for the Roughriders.
