Cedar Hill Prospect Talks Recruiting

Cedar Hill High School in Texas produces several Division I prospects each year from its football program. This year is no different. Recently, I had the chance to sit down with one Cedar Hill prospect to get the latest on his recruitment.

Laquan Harper is a cornerback/wide receiver for tradition-rich Cedar Hill High School in Cedar Hill, Texas. The 5'10" 170 pound senior demonstrated solid speed at the Baylor mini-camp held at Cedar Hill, as well as good technique from the cornerback position. We were able to get a hold of him after the camp to get his take.

"The camp went alright. I could have done better. It's just a process you go through as a growing senior."

Although Harper was able to demonstrate his pass coverage skills on the field, he took several things away from the camp tha the plans on utilizing on the football field during games.

"I learned to be confident in my routes, and I learned how to sink my hips. I just learned a lot of stuff on the defensive side like that. I feel a lot more comfortable breaking down and moving to the ball. I learned a lot from the camp."

Harper explained what it is like being a senior in the rich Cedar Hill High School tradition.

"Being a receiver at Cedar Hill is difficult because they like to run the ball a lot. But since I came here, I feel welcome, and I feel comfortable. This year is going to be a different year. We are going to be throwing the ball more, and I feel like I found a new family at Cedar Hill."

Harper plans on attending SMU and UTEP camps later this summer, and says he is interested in Baylor, New Mexico State, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State.
