Gators Offer LSU Four-Star Commit Corione Harris

Corione Harris has picked up yet another SEC offer. The 2018 four-star cornerback received an offer from Florida, and although Harris is committed to in-state LSU, he is open to learning more about the Gators.

Corione Harris picked up his second SEC offer this month, when Florida extended an offer to the four-star defensive back out of New Orleans.

"It was exciting to me," said the Landry-Walker corner. "Florida always was in my top three, top five, so getting an offer from them, I was really happy about it." 

Although one of his newest offers, Harris is very familiar with the defensive backs that have come out of the Gator program. 

"I've been watching Florida since I was 12, when I really got into sports," he said. "After last year watching Vernon Hargreaves III I was always a fan of Florida DBU."

The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder hopes to make a trip to Gainesville really soon.  "It's awesome [to have the offer]. I'm going to go up there on a visit to see what I like about it more...I would like to go in the spring, but most likely will go in the summer." 

LSU was the first to offer the playmaker out of Louisiana, and Harris in turn committed to the Tigers soon after it was extended. 

"Me and the coaches we have a tight bond and we have a really good relationship."

Although he remains committed to the in-state program, he does not want to shut any doors. 

"I have two more years to choose so I'm going to see schools that have offered me." he said. "Besides education [I am looking for] football wise, I think I want to go to a defense that DBs are active; everybody working at every position just in case if anybody's gets down, so we can have backups. We stay in shape and fly around and just have fun." 

Some schools he hopes to visit are: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi State, Oregon, Texas A&M, Auburn and Florida State.
