Starting a new series this morning here at the J-E-T Press, the Sunday Morning Spotlight. Each week, we are going to take a look at a Jets player that will be key to the success in 2012. This week, we take a look at LB David Harris.

He set a school record while in high school at Ottawa Hills High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with 158 tackles as a junior, and followed up with a senior year where he earned all state honors from the Detroit Free Press newspaper.

He had a knee injury before arriving at the University of Michigan which required him to redshirt, and he didn’t become a full time starter in school until his junior year. He showed his NFL potential at that point by leading the team in tackles in his junior year with 88, and 103 as senior. His senior year also earned him All Big-Ten honors, co-team MVP honors, and second team All-America.

After an impressive performance at the NFL combine, the Jets chose him in the 2nd round of the 2007 NFL draft.
