The Kansas City native has truly blossomed from a player with upside into a bonafide NFL prospect. Harris is second on the team with 4.0 sacks, and leads the team in tackles for loss (11.5) and quarterback hurries (4).
Rival coaches raving about #Mizzou soph DL Charles Harris: "That #91 flies all over the field. He's a fantastic player."

Credit defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski for developing the fantastic athlete. Harris didn’t grow up following the sport, and was more of a basketball player before transitioning to football during high school.
