While Bless Harris may be a new name on the board for Florida fans, he’s one of the coaches they’ve been recruiting since the beginning of September. After starting 7 games with Lamar, and playing in 15 games, Harris decided to pursue a bigger stage to end his college career.
Familiarity with the staff comes from Con Bless of New Orleans, where he played for the high school coach Johnson used to train for. He’s also former teammates on FSU’s current defensive lineup Byron Turner, and 2022 defensive line commitment Bishop Thomas. As soon as he entered the gate, Coach Johnson and Harris started talking.
“Coach Johnson was in Memphis when we first spoke, and he started talking to me in September,” Harris said. “I also have a couple of my high school teammates on the team. Looking at how close the team is to the field, it showed me that it’s a really player-driven environment.”
Getting Bless on Campus paid off in spades for this employee as he was stunned by everything he went through.
“I just felt like there was just something about this place that worked for me but also for my family,” Harris said. “It was exciting, the whole game, Warchant, it was raucous all night! After speaking to Coach Norville and his crew, we instantly clicked. Coach Norville explained to me their needs as a team and what he expected of me out of the gate. Coach Johnson and Coach Atkins both played a role in my decision. My family felt With the hospitality of all.”

Harris is a 6-foot-6, 315-pound streak guy who plays interference but can also play indoors when on guard. With two years of eligibility remaining, he will do whatever it takes to help FSU once he reaches campus.
“The need they told me was to prevail up front in the trenches and that everything would fall into place,” Harris explained. “I can play in both modes or guard if they need me. I plan to sign up in January and go. I want to win the ACC Championship and be the best teammate I can be. I’m shooting for this year’s Newcomer title and I want to be a great mentor to the youngsters.”
Strict and out of the way, he plans to recruit others into the Tribe22 class while finishing necessary work in the classroom.
“Yeah definitely got something in the works,” Harris said of seeking to add players to the class. “I will stay on the path I have been on, practice and train in order to make my game. I am also finishing my bachelor’s degree next month before I get to FSU.”
