He led the nation with eight interceptions last season.

Virginia Tech sophomore Kendall Fuller is keeping pace with Harris, as the Hokies' cornerback is also on the Thorpe Watch List, after previously being named to the Nagurski and Bednarik lists.

He had 58 tackles and six-interceptions as a true freshman.
