No. 3 – Major Harris

Major Harris’ 1999 season at West Virginia is what made him an individual legend. What he could have done after that would have made him an immortal. Harris racked up 2,058 passing yards with 17 touchdowns and ran for 936 yards and six touchdowns. He finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting as a junior and opted to leave Morgantown for a shot at the NFL.

Harris was a 12th round selection by the Los Angeles Raiders, but never played a down.

Harris was already on the way to stardom as a sophomore, leading West Virginia to its first ever undefeated regular season in 1988. The Mountaineers fell to Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl, but not after Harris threw for 1,915 yards, with 14 touchdowns while rushing for 610 yards and six touchdowns.
