A two-star recruit out of LaGrange, IL, Trell Harris received very limited offers. Following offers from just South Dakota, Northern Iowa, and Illinois State, Harris decided to play his college ball at Kent State.
High School Ball
Trell had an electric high school career. After transferring from Lyons Township to neighboring Nazareth Academy, Harris exploded for 870 yards and 12 touchdowns. On top of that, Harris was a special team’s threat, amassing 750 return yards and six more touchdowns.
In his first season with the Flashes, Trell Harris saw limited time. He had his best game in a start against Buffalo where he went for five and 52. In 2023, Harris started to get more time on the field with five starts. Trell recorded multiple catches in every game he played this season, finishing the year with 26 receptions for 400 yards and a touchdown.
Helping lead the Golden Flashes to their only win of the 2023 season, Trell Harris was the leading receiver with 94 yards and a touchdown in a win over Central Connecticut State on September 16th.

After being the third receiver in terms of yards for Kent State last year, Trell Harris is looking to put the nation on notice at his new school. This starts at the quarterback position which was a major reason for their struggles in 2023. Golden Flashes quarterbacks threw for just 1,974 yards, 11 touchdowns, and six interceptions the entire season.
Harris is a target for three BIG-10 schools, already receiving offers from Indiana, Michigan State, and Minnesota. Minnesota already received a commitment from New Hampshire transfer QB Max Brosmer, a huge get for a Golden Gophers offense that has struggled as of late. In East Lansing, new head coach Jonathan Smith will be looking to bring in a new QB which could be intriguing for Harris to consider.
Other offers for Trell Harris include Virginia, West Virginia, East Carolina, Vandy, USF, Marshall, and SDSU. Harris racked up 78 yards in a week two loss at Arkansas proving he can hang with top-tier power five talent. Look for the 6-1 wideout with two years of eligibility left to have an immediate impact on his new squad and put scouts on notice in an expanded role for a much-improved offense.
