Offers in for 2014 CB

A few schools have offered this 2014 cornerback out of Florida, but he still feels he is being overlooked. Find out who has offered, if he has a favorite, and more here.

Al Harris closed out 2012 with a state championship and the junior cornerback is ready to build on that early in 2013.

"It is an amazing feeling to be state champions," Harris said. "Many people doubted us, we just kept working, and we earned it. Beating Lincoln was big for us and now we are going back to work for next year."

Harris is not one that will get complacent. He knows his father (Al Harris, Sr.) played football at the highest level and that is where he wants to be one day.

"I want to be the best at what I do. I set high goals for myself, I work hard all of the time, and my dream is to get to the NFL. I am going to keep working and trying to improve, so I can get there."

He still has another year of high school football before going to college. Plenty of schools are showing interest in the 6-foot, 170 pound corner out Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas and a few have already offered him a scholarship.

"Cincinnati offered me on Wednesday and I had offers from Purdue and South Carolina before that.

"Alabama, Miami, Louisville, Florida, Florida State, and Mississippi State are also recruiting me, but they have not offered yet."

Harris is in no rush to name a leader or to make a decision.

"I am just taking things as they come," he said. "I am going to weigh all of my options, I am going to look for a school that fits my style of play, and I will be taking my time with this." For now, Harris just wants to show everyone that he is one of the top cornerbacks in the 2014 class and that is what he is working to do.

"To be honest, I do feel that I am being overlooked by some right now. I am a cover corner, I can play press coverage, and I can play zone as well. I do want to make more plays and I know that could help me, but I do feel I am being a little overlooked right now. I am working to change that."

Harris can only make plays when he is tested and he has not been tested too much recently. He did have one interception in 2012 while adding 21 tackles and nine pass break-ups.

Scout currently has Harris ranked as the No. 31 corner in the country.
