Rutgers WR Jawuan Harris accomplishes incredible feat on baseball diamond
Football isn’t the only field where Jawuan Harris is a deep threat. On Saturday night, the Rutgers wide receiver proved he could go the distance in baseball, too.
Harris, a sophomore, two-sport athlete for the Scarlet Knights, had quite the remarkable feat on the diamond , hitting three home runs in Rutgers’ 11-3 win over South Carolina Upstate. He became the school’s first player with three dingers in a single game since 2002.

The three home runs came in the second game of a double-header on Saturday. He finished the game going 3-for-5 from the plate with four RBIs.
In Rutgers’ first game, he was just 1-for-5.
Harris played in all 12 games for the Scarlet Knights’ football team this fall, and was the squad’s leading receiver. He caught 39 passes for 481 yards and three touchdowns as Rutgers finished the year 2-10.
Being a two-sport athlete at the college level is a pretty demanding task. But it looks like Harris is an all-around talent not fazed by the pressure.
Who knew he could be a deep threat in two sports?
