Young Tight End Stands Out at Auburn Camp

Class of 2015 prospect Jackson Harris talks about his visit to Auburn.

Columbia, Tenn.--One of the young players who stood out at Auburn's July one-day football prospects camp put himself on the radar of AU's coaching staff.

Jackson Harris, who measured in at six-foot-four, 236 pounds at the camp, showed good footwork in the drills and caught the ball well. That attracted the attention of Scott Fountain, who spent time talking with the rising junior during the event.

Harris says it was good to be recognized. He notes that Auburn is one of the colleges he has interest in that he had not heard from so he decided to make the trip down from Tennessee to participate in the camp. "Auburn is a good school and is in the SEC so I wanted to check it out,"?he says.

Asked what the best part of the camp was for him, Harris says, "Probably the one-on-ones with the tight ends going against the linebackers. That is probably one of my best things and it is a lot of fun."

The tight end notes that he started about half of the games as a freshman for Columbia Central High and was a full-time starter last season. Additionally, he plays center in basketball and competes in track and field.

Harris has visited several camps this summer and says one in Nashville is the venue where he had his best showing. "The one at Vanderbilt stands out because that is where I?earned my first offer," he says.

Since then he says he has added offers from Kentucky, Georgia Tech and Florida State.
