Harris Talks Auburn; Upcoming Visits

Booker T. Washington (Fla.) standout Treon Harris has three visits set up before signing day, including one to see the Auburn Tigers.

Miami, Fla.--A talented and athletic quarterback that led Booker T. Washington to an undefeated season and a high school national championship, Treon Harris has been a longtime commitment to Florida State. That hasn't kept schools from all over continuing to recruit Harris including the Auburn Tigers.

Watching as Gus Malzahn's team won 12 games and the SEC Championship this season and was just seconds away from taking down the Seminoles for the national championship, Harris says that he's planning to take three additional visits before signing day including a trip to Auburn next weekend.

"They are a good program and had a great team," Harris tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I just have to see the rest when I'm on my visit. I don't know too much about them now. I just know they are a good program."

Having already visited Florida State and with trips to Florida planned this weekend and Miami the last weekend of January in addition to his Auburn trip on Jan. 24th, Harris says for him it's important to make sure of his decision and that means seeing something different.

"This is the most important decision of my life," Harris says. "You have to just check them all out."

Rated a four-star prospect and the number 13 cornerback in the country by Scout.com, Harris wants to get a shot to play quarterback on the next level but has the athleticism to play defensive back or wide receiver if that doesn't work out. Seeing what Nick Marshall was able to accomplish this season for the Tigers, he says it's an offense that would fit good with his skills.

"I just watched them and it was me in high school all over again," Harris says of Auburn's offense. "It's the kind of things we did this year."

Harris threw for more than 1,600 yards with 26 touchdowns and only three interceptions this season. He also rushed for nearly 600 yards with eight more scores as Booker T. Washington won back-to-back titles his last two years at quarterback. The Tornadoes averaged 41.4 points per game while allowing just 9.9 per contest.
