Harris Headed to the Hawgs

<b>Matt Harris</b> and teammate <b>Colin Tucker</b> made their choice of schools public this week. Both players are headed to Arkansas, and Harris discusses his decision.

"I committed to Arkansas yesterday morning," said Matt Harris.

When asked what made him choose the Razorbacks, Harris left little doubt that is where he wanted to be all along.

"Well my dad was born in Fayetteville. My step mom went to Springdale. I've been going up there since I was two or three years old. Arkansas is like my second home. The fans up there are great. The coaches are top notch. The environment can't get any better than Arkansas; it's just great up there. It's in the middle of the mountains, and it's just awesome. 

At 6-2 and 176 pounds (measured this weekend at Arkansas' camp) Harris will likely play safety after spending his junior season at corner. He ran a 4.7 forty at Arkansas' camp and had an extremely impressive 4.14 shuttle time.

"They're recruiting me to play safety. I played corner last year, and I may play some safety next year. I only played six games, because I broke my arm in the homecoming game."

Having to watch the rest of the season after a good start last year, Harris is more than ready to get back to the gridiron this season for Pearce.
