OG Joe Harris Profile
Lithonia High School (Ga.) junior guard Joe Harris spoke with CUTigers after his visit to Tigertown.
"It was nice. I loved it," he said. "I like the atmosphere at Clemson. The atmosphere at Clemson is what I look for. I just like it."
Harris spent time speaking with his main recruiter to Clemson, defensive ends coach Chris Rumph, and offensive line coach Brad Scott.
"They talked with me about what I liked about Clemson, how they liked me as a player on the offensive line—things of that nature," Harris said.
The Scout.com three-star, who considers himself a big college football fan, enjoyed taking in his first Clemson/Carolina game.
"To me, it was a pretty good game," Harris said. "Clemson, things didn't go the way they wanted to. To me, they played a good game. They had a couple of good plays. The offensive line on both sides, they did pretty good. Jamie Harper ran hard. Marcus Lattimore did the same. Kyle Parker hit a couple of receivers when he could. Alshon Jeffery and Stephen Garcia connected pretty well. It was a real good game."
Earlier this season, he saw Mississippi play Kentucky and South Carolina host Tennessee.
Along with the Clemson offer, Harris has offers from South Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State and Minnesota.
"I wouldn't say I have favorites, just teams that I'm looking at," he said. "The teams I've been looking at are South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Oregon."
Harris would like to commit sometime in the near future.
"I'll probably commit by the spring, or the summer," he said. "I'll be committed by then. If I commit, I won't have anything to worry about if I get injured. It means I've still got my scholarship."
Harris is playing this year's Georgia Rising Juniors game, which is scheduled for Jan. 8 at Halford Stadium in Decatur.
He was named No. 1 Offensive Lineman at the National Underclassman Combine.
