- After finishing a productive four years at Wake Forest, Josh Harris is more than ready to take the next step in his career and enter the NFL. The native Texan leaves Wake Forest as one of the top rushers in Demon Deacon history. Harris finished his career at Wake Forest with a total of 489 carries, 2,230 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. Despite multiple injuries plaguing his sophomore season, Harris played in almost every game for the Demon Deacons as one of their leading rushers throughout four seasons. He leaves Wake as one of the top 10 career rushing leaders in school history. Once Harris completed his senior season, he headed back home to Dallas to train for his next move. He mentioned that he decided to go home and train in order to be around his family and old training partners. "I'm working on durability, stability, and flexibility," said Harris. "I'm plenty strong but I need to make sure I stay healthy."
In order for Harris to stay in good physical shape, he does extra stretching, participates in yoga and completes more reps with less weight in the weight room rather than strictly heavy lifting. This ensures that he is at his physical peak for the draft. A little over three months after his college career ended, Harris participated in Wake's Pro Day on March 17. On the morning of Pro Day Harris was prepared to show the 22 NFL scouts in attendance his improvement on the field. However, Harris was greeted by unexpected rain and ice storms. "The weather was so miserable that you couldn't even get your legs warm enough to perform at your peak," Harris said. "It was sort of unfair to compare our numbers to other prospects, but I guess that's just the luck of the draw." - Wake Forest football
