"Cool Visit" to Auburn, Prospect Says

One of Auburn's official football visitors discusses his trip to AU.

Conyers, Ga.--Bo Harris says his official visit to Auburn over the weekend was "cool" and he wasn't talking about the colder than normal weather on Saturday.

The running back from Heritage High, who is verbally committed to the Tigers, says, "I just hung out with the players and the running backs Kenny Irons and Carl Stewart. I went to Kenny Irons' party and I had a good time there. Kenny is cool. Very cool."

Although it is not a particularly long drive from Conyers to Auburn, none of the 21 prospects in for official visits to the Auburn campus has a longer trip this weekend than Harris.

"I am on my way now to Milford Academy," Harris notes. He is driving to New York state with his family. "I am looking forward to getting that over with so I can get back down to Auburn."

Harris says he plans to take classes at the prep school which relocated from Connecticut to New Berlin, N.Y., and play football there this fall. After that he plans to enroll for classes at Auburn in January 2007.

"I have got good test scores so all I have to do is take care of my classes there and I will be back at Auburn next January," he says.

Harris says he met with academic advisers during his trip to Auburn. "We talked about physical education and all of the types of things I will need to do to become a coach," he says.

"I felt like I am already in school going to Auburn," he adds. "All of the players are real cool, the coaches are really cool and all of the people in the town I met are real cool. I had a really good time. I made a great decision."

A three-year starter at Heritage High, he rushed for more than 1,100 yards as a senior with 17 touchdowns while earning All-State honors. He could also play linebacker at the next level, but says that Auburn's coaches told him that they want him to be a tailback.
