Brandon Harris entering NFL draft
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami cornerback Brandon Harris will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
2011 NFL Draft
Harris is projected as a late first-round prospect. He based his decision largely on a review from the NFL Collegiate Advisory Committee. He has said he would likely leave school if told he was a first-round possibility.
InsideTheU.com first reported Harris' choice.
Harris had 44 tackles this season for the Hurricanes, with a team-high 10 pass breakups and one interception.
Miami had a first-round selection in a record 14 straight drafts from 1995 through 2008. No former Hurricanes were selected in the opening round of the 2009 or 2010 drafts.
