Name: Taj Harris
Position: Wide receiver
Hometown: Beverly, N.J.
High School: Palmyra
2017 stats: Harris was a jack-of-all-trades for Palmyra, picking up over 2,300 yards of offense and 29 touchdowns while playing quarterback and receiver.
2018 projections: With quite a few receivers on campus for the Syracuse Orange, it would seem Harris is likely to redshirt before hopping into the competition next year.
How’d he get here?: He entertained Rutgers for a long time, then picked Syracuse last June just the same. Temple, NC State and Maryland offered him as well, among other schools.
What’d recruiting sites say?: Everyone said three stars. Cool.
Money quote: Dino, put this on everything.
“Syracuse is Wide Receiver U. They just throw the ball a lot and that’s something I would like to get into.”

Notes/video from Day 2 of Syracuse camp: hustled around the field to watch the DeVito/Amie/Welch RVA group. Not the smoothest session. Drops from Custis, Thompson-Bishop. Freshman Taj Harris (80) made a nice sideline grab, then got some coaching on his breaks. pic.twitter.com/AqOhmSorJY— Stephen Bailey (@Stephen_Bailey1) August 3, 2018
What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Naomie Harris played Paula in the Academy Award-winning film “Moonlight.” It was a great film, plus it’ll always be remembered for the envelope snafu that originally gave the award to “La La Land.”
Interesting nugget o’interest: Harris wants to walk onto the basketball team, something both Dino Babers and Jim Boeheim seem okay with.
Let’s get a look at ya: Let’s see some signing day highlights, shall we?
