Harris Making the All-Star Scene--Again

Football prospect Jerrell Harris will be one of the all-stars competing in Mobile.

Mobile, Ala.--On Monday night at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Jerrell Harris will become one of those rare athletes who completes an all-star double.

The linebacker from Gadsden City High will play in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Football Game that kicks off at 7 p.m. on Monday. Earlier this year, he played in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Basketball Game and was one of the top performers in that contest.

Football will be his sport of choice in college and he has plenty of offers.

"The recruiting process is going good," Harris says. "The main schools I'm focusing on are Southern Cal, Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee.

"Alabama is the only school that I've taken an official visit to," Harris adds. "I have officials set up for Auburn, Southern Cal and Tennessee in January."

Harris, who is not tipping his hand on where he will play his college football, has been one of the more impressive players in practices for the all-star game that began on Wednesday. The linebacker and his Alabama all-star teammates are looking to win a third straight game in the series.

"I feel I have been doing real well in practice," Harris says. "I have been improving day by day, learning the plays, and getting familiar with the players around me. We've just been hanging out after practice and getting to know each other."

The linebacker says he is enjoying the chance to be a part of another all-star game. "It's a blessing that they chose me to play in this game with all the good players in Alabama," he says.

Harris, who has been interested in Auburn since early in the the recruiting process, notes that nothing has changed with that. "Coach Price is recruiting me from Auburn," he says of Terry Price, AU's defensive ends coach. "He's a good guy, real friendly and easy to get along with."
