ATLANTA — Polytechnic Prep coach Dino Mangiero is accustomed to calling new Georgia Tech signee I-Perfection Harris by his preferred nickname — "I."

As for the origin of Harris' unique name, Mangiero never really asked the player for an explanation.

"You'd have to ask his mother," said Mangiero, whose Brooklyn, N.Y., school went 8-0 this past season. "She named her other son I-Supreme."

Harris, a 5-11, 180-pound cornerback from Staten Island, N.Y., was not available for comment.

A track standout who ran a 4.32-second 40-yard dash this past summer, Harris played running back, receiver and cornerback for Poly Prep.
