"The visit to Alabama went great and I had a great time," said Tyler Harris. "I talked to with all of the coaches, including Coach [Nick] Saban. He told me that they needed to watch my game film so far this season and that they would be in touch with me."

No offer from Alabama or any other school yet for this 6-foot-4, 210 pound junior out of Blackshear (Ga.) Pierce County, but he feels the Crimson Tide have interest in him.

"I think they are pretty interested in me. After I ate today, they called me down to the locker room while the players were in there before I went to Coach Saban's office to talk with him.

"I had 360 yards and four touchdowns last night and all the coaches were telling me to keep it up. A lot of the coaches were asking questions about me too and telling me they would be watching my film."

The interest is mutual between these two parties. Harris likes what he has seen in Tuscaloosa.

"I like the facilities, the tradition, and the fan base at Alabama," the talented signal caller told Scout. "Even though the game wasn't that big today, the fans still were amazing.

"I really like it at Alabama. They are always a great team and they are always recruiting great athletes at all positions. I really get along with the coaches as well."

Harris is hearing from Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and many others. He may still be waiting on offer no. one, but Scout projects him as one of the top 2014 quarterbacks in the South.
