Gionni Harris Receives Interest

Gionni Harris is a dangerous threat to score any time he gets his hands on the ball, and that is why programs like Tulsa, Arkansas, and North Carolina are keeping close tabs on this speedy athlete.

Gionni Harris, a 5-foot-8, 160-pound athlete from Fayetteville high in Arkansas has the ability to play a few different positions on the next level. He could be either a wide receiver or defensive back, but he may be the most dangerous in the return game.

Schools have noticed his speed an athleticism on film and that is why they are tracking him very closely, and hope to get a better look at him this summer during team camp sessions.

"Everything is going very good," Harris began to explain of the recruiting process. "My coach has been talking with North Carolina, Arkansas and Tulsa. He has been talking to North Carolina a lot and I think that they are thinking about offering."

"A lot of coaches say that I can be an inside receiver or cornerback. They just want me to get the best fit. I feel that I have some good special teams film, and I am a dangerous weapon in the return game. That is some of my best film."

Harris was recently on hand for the Arkansas Razorback Junior Day, and he really enjoyed the whole experience.

"It was pretty cool," he began. "I got to talk to all of the other recruits and kind of get to know some of the other top players."

"It was nice to get back and see everything at Arkansas. The coaches were great. They did a great job of selling the program and explained to you everything that Arkansas has to offer."

Even though he enjoyed all of the things regarding and surrounding the football program, it was the school itself that had a lasting impact with Harris.

"The basketball game was also pretty fun, and that is where I got to meet a lot of the other players, but the one thing that stuck out to me the most was probably the academic side of things," Harris informed. "They have a small classroom, and have academic supervisors that are willing to help you anytime. Academics are very important to me."

Harris earned All-Conference honors after a successful season on the field as a junior in 2006.
