Cedartown defensive back, Tae Harris, commits to Clemson after decommiting from UGA in January

Cedartown High School 4-star defensive back, Tae Harris, has announced that he has committed to continue his football career at Clemson University.

Harris had been committed to play football at the University of Georgia until he decommitted from the school in January of 2024.

According to 247Sports, as the 19th-ranked player in the state of Georgia and the 11th-ranked safety in the class. Harris is rated as a top-150 player in the Class of 2025.


As a junior last season playing for Cedartown, the defensive back totaled 44 tackles, three forced fumbles, and six pass breakups. Harris’ talents translate to both sides of the ball as he also played offensive snaps last season for the Bulldogs, scoring nine offensive touchdowns and was able to record more than 600 scrimmage yards, according to 247Sports.

Two years ago as a sophomore for Cedartown, he recorded 59 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions while totaling 372 yards of offense and five touchdowns. Harris played a role in Cedartown making an appearance in the Class 4A state championship where they were defeated against Benedictine.

While he is a force to be reckoned with on the football field, Harris is also a member of the school’s track team. As a sophomore, Harris placed 10th at the Class 4A 100-meter dash. Harris has also been recorded running a 4.38 40-yard dash time.

As a member of the 2025 recruiting class for the Clemson Tigers, Harris is the 11th commitment for the program and is rated the sixth-highest recruit in the Tigers’ class.

Harris has been a problem for opposing offenses and will look to continue wreaking havoc on defenses in the ACC next season for Clemson.
