Commit Profile: Christian Harris

As the class of 2014 signs their national letters of intent, we run down each signee's recruiting process and look back at what it took for the Blue Devils to earn his commitment. Next up is Georgia offensive lineman Christian Harris.

Name: Christian Harris

School: Collins Hill HS (Suwanee, GA)

Ht/Wt/40: 6-foot-6 / 280lbs / 5.0

Projected Position: Offensive Tackle

Recruiting Recap: Harris was scheduled to visit North Carolina State and North Carolina, but a last minute trip to Duke ended up being the difference in his recruitment. Harris is considered a three star prospect, and the nation's No. 48 offensive tackle. Harris chose Duke over offers from NC State, North Carolina, Mississippi State, and Kentucky.

Quotable: "It was kind of out of left field for me as well," he said. "But when it all happened, and I had a chance to get a Duke education while playing high level football, I was sure this was the place for me." - Christian Harris

"Coach Latina was telling me how much he liked me, and we talked about Duke and how I was working. He said he wanted to offer me, and then we talked to Coach Cutcliffe about it as well. After we talked with everyone for around 40 minutes, they stepped out and my dad and I talked it over. We figured that Duke was the best place for me, and so I committed." - Christian Harris

"I play left tackle for my high school team, and that's what Duke has recruited me for." - Christian Harris
