Jacob Harris, a former star at Palm Harbor University and Central Florida, was taken in the fourth round by the Los Angeles Rams.
Harris, a former soccer standout who did not start playing organized football until senior year at Palm Harbor University, has gone through a meteoric rise to become a sleeper pick in this year’s draft.
He started off as a walk-on at Western Kentucky before transferring to UCF. For the past two seasons, Harris was a dependable receiver for the Knights. As a senior, he had 30 catches for 539 yards and eight touchdowns.
Harris’ most memorable game came against USF this past season when he had five catches for 110 yards and three touchdowns.
With the Rams, Harris will join former East Lake star Tyler Higbee in a group of tight ends that features plenty of locals.
