Booker T. Washington's Treon Harris still committed to Florida State despite his recruitment heating up

Treon Harris and his family members knew his college recruitment was going to pick up tremendously at the end of his high school season.

“Coach Fisher knew the type of talent Treon had as a quarterback,” older brother Tim Harris Jr. said, “and he told my dad, [Booker T. coach Tim ‘Ice’ Harris] that a long time ago.

Bruce, a former Davie University School receiver now at Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas, was the best player on the field during South Florida Express 7-on-7 tryouts this past weekend, earning the distinct honor Sunday of being the first invite to play in the 2016 U.S. Army All-American Bowl game.

And the praises Bruce earned from his peers and national media members barely do him justice.

“He may be the first 5-8 five-star [prospect],” ESPN national recruiting analyst Gerry Hamilton said.
