"I am still trying to get down to five schools, but I haven't been able to do that yet," Marcell Harris told Scout at The Opening. "It is a lot harder to do than I thought it would be. I figured I would have my top schools by now, and be able to start setting up visits to those, but it just isn't that easy."
Harris still has schools from across the country recruiting him and he has no eliminated anyone yet.
"My options are still open. I have visited Florida, Florida State, Texas, and South Florida so far, and I enjoyed each visit, but I am still looking at everyone the same. A lot of schools are still coming hard at me, so I am still trying to figure things out."
When asked who is coming the hardest, he said, "Clemson and Ohio State."
College coaches are not the only ones recruiting him hard, prospects committed to other schools are too.
"I have guys that are committed to Florida, Florida State, and Ohio State always talking to me about their schools. They mostly joke around with me about coming there with them, but it is all cool. They just make sure I hear their school name and everything."
Right now, Harris hears everything from everyone, but he hopes to only be thinking about a handful of schools within the next few months.
The 6-foot-2, 200 pound four-star safety out of Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips thinks things will slow down this fall.
"By early in the season, I think I will definitely be down to five schools and start taking some official visits," he said. "I am not sure if I will take all five visits, but I probably will. I just need to see as much as I can."
Scout currently ranks Harris as the no. 11 safety in the country.
