Three-star athlete Ajene Harris (Los Angeles, Calif./Crenshaw) has faxed in his signed letter of intent and is now part of USC’s 2014 class.

While at Crenshaw, Harris starred as a quarterback and wide receiver for the Cougars.  During his senior season, Harris was named the City Section Player of the year in a season where he led the Cougars to a City Championship victory over Narbonne.

During the championship game, Harris and the Cougars’ offense struggled to score points, but he managed to come up with a key interception and run to help seal the win.

Harris was neither offered a scholarship, nor did he commit to the Trojans under Sarkisian’s watch, but the athlete never waned his verbal pledge to the school.

The scholarship offer, extended by Tee Martin, signaled a shift in the focus of recruiting for the Trojans.  Under Ed Orgeron, more of an emphasis was placed on securing local talent.

Though he may only be ranked a three-star prospect by Rivals, Harris impressed in multiple camps.  While making appearances at multiple camps, Harris flashed good instincts at the cornerback position, which is where the 5-foot-11 commit is expected to play for the Trojans.

Given the inconsistent play from the corners last season, Harris could conceivably contend for significant playing time in 2014.
