The long and disappointing journey of Cliff Harris with the Oregon Ducks is over. Harris was dismissed from the Oregon football program this afternoon. Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press reports.
Harris had a promising sophomore campaign with Oregon. He led the NCAA with passes defended and passes broken up, led the Pac-10 in number of interceptions, and set school single-season records with the Ducks for punt return yardage and punt return touchdowns. He was considered an All-American by many.
But he couldn't follow it up.
He was suspended indefinitely for speeding at 118 mph in a 65 mph zone. Although he came back, he was suspended again for another driving incident, and never saw significant playing time this season.
Now, he'll probably have to look for another place to finish up his college career or try declaring early for the NFL Draft. It's safe to say his stock has probably fallen a bit from where it was a few months ago.
