Originally from South Australian National Football League (SANFL) club Port Adelaide, Harris was one of six pre-draft selections which Brisbane had received in preparation for their inaugural VFL season in 1987. Harris made his senior VFL debut aged 23, and made ten appearances in his first year at the Bears.[1]

In the next two and a half years he played only four more games and returned to Port Adelaide during the 1990 season.[1] He was Port's fullback in the 1990 SANFL Grand Final, where they defeated Glenelg.
