Former Bradwell, South Carolina star Kevin Harris is ready


Kevin Harris often looked like a man playing among boys during his high school football days at Bradwell Institute.

After moving on to play at South Carolina, Harris lived up to the potential he first showed in Hinesville.

As a sophomore, the 5-foot-10, 220-pounder became the first Gamecock to lead the SEC in rushing as he amassed 1,138 yards in just 10 game to earn All-SEC first-team honors.

Injuries slowed Harris down last fall, in his junior season, but Harris finished strong — rushing for 182 yards in his final game —  the Duke’s Mayo Bowl win against North Carolina. He led the Gamecocks in rushing once again with 659 yards on the season.

After the big-time performance, Harris declared for the NFL draft, which begins Thursday and runs through Saturday in Las Vegas.
