DITR – Braylin Harris

Braylin Harris is a 5’9″, 180 pound, class of 2025 OLB/ SS for Opelousas Catholic High School in Opelousas, Louisiana. Braylin is more of an in-the-box safety, and is a hard hitter. The one NFL player he models his game after the most id Derwin James, for reference. Braylin is someone who makes a big impact on defense; his 2023 stats so far are 50+ tackles, 2 interceptions, 5 PBU’s, a fumble recovery, a defensive touchdown, and a sack. He didn’t record any stats last season, as he missed the season due to injury.

Braylin hasn’t gone on any visits yet, or hold any offers, but that should change soon.
