Tigers Give Harris Something to Consider

Four-star recruit Treon Harris talks about his official visit to Auburn and where he stands in his recruitment.

Miami, Fla.--Dynamic quarterback/athlete Treon Harris said he came away impressed with Auburn on his official visit to check out Gus Malzahn's program, but noted he is still committed to Florida State.

"I am solid still," he said of his pledge to the Seminoles. "I?am just taking my visits and experiencing things I?never saw in my life."

However, the four star prospect who led Washington High to an unbeaten 2013 season said that Auburn is one of four colleges under consideration along with FSU, Florida and hometown Miami, the program he plans to visit this coming weekend.

"The week before signing day things will come out,"?he said. "Whatever (program) comes out on top will be on top."

"The visit went great," he said, noting that he spent time with the coaches and toured the AU campus on his first visit to Auburn. "Everything is great, I loved it."

Harris, who now has an offer from the Tigers, said that Auburn coaches told him he would get a look at quarterback if he signs with Auburn.

"Coach (Rhett) Lashlee showed me how the offense is going to run," Harris said of his meeting with Auburn's offensive coordinator, noting that Lashlee explained to him the role of the quarterback in the Malzahn system.

He noted that Malzahn made it clear that Auburn would really like to have the 5-11, 170 athlete join the 2014 signing class. "I heard a lot of good things (from Malzahn)," he said.

Harris threw for more than 1,600 yards with 26 touchdowns and only three interceptions as a senior on a dominating team that ended its year ranked No. 1 in the country by Scout.com. He also rushed for nearly 600 yards with eight more scores as Washington won back-to-back titles Harris at quarterback

The prospect said that his Auburn visit made a "big impact"on him. "The scheme of the offense is similar to my high school, but there is a lot to it," he noted.

Commenting on how he believes he would fit in AU's offensive system, he said, "I believe I fit in good. I feel I can fit in wherever. I can do it all. I can improve everybody wrong (who thinks he won't be a QB in college)."

Treon Harris caused major problems for high school defenses as a runner and passer.

Harris said that his player host was Ricardo Louis, who was a standout high school player in Miami. "I just knew him and had heard of him," Harris said. "I had seen him a couple of times. He is a cool, great dude."

Someone at Auburn he has known for a long time is Auburn wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig, going back to Craig's time as an assistant coach at FSU.

"The relationship we have got is like a bond," Harris pointed out. "He talks to me a lot about football, life, school. That is the thing I like about Coach Craig. He doesn't want to talk to me just about football."
