Jordan Burns, an 18-year-old who can play at scrum half or on the wing, joins from Epsom College. He originally joined the club's Academy programme when he was 13. He represented England at Under 16 level and played at scrum half and on the wing for England Under 18 Clubs and Schools earlier this season.
Harry Sloan is a 17-year-old centre from Skinners School and first joined the club's programme when he was 15. He has played for England Under 18 Clubs and Schools for the past two seasons.
Henry Taylor is an 18-year-old scrum half from Cranleigh School. He joined the club's Academy programme last year. He has represented England Under 18 Clubs and Schools at scrum half for the past two years.
Commenting on the signing of the three players, Harlequins Academy Manager Tony Diprose said, "While it is encouraging to receive such a positive review from the RFU and Premiership Rugby, our Academy must continue to identify and bring through the next generation of talented players for Harlequins and England.
"16 of the club's current professional squad are graduates of our Academy which speaks volumes for their commitment and talent," Diprose continued, "Our three new recruits have the potential to follow in the footsteps of players like Chris Robshaw, Mike Brown and Luke Wallace and we look forward to helping them realise their ambitions."
