Harris on UA offer: 'It's Unreal'

Tyler Harris has the size, arm and intangibles for FBS football, but his first offer hadn't come through just yet. But at the tail-end of his time at Alabama's Junior Day Saturday - Nick Saban delivered some big news to the 2014 four-star.

Tyler Harris shines at most places he showed up at, but it hadn't translated into a scholarship offer just yet.

That all changed Saturday at Alabama of all places, while taking in the program's second Junior Day.

"I got the offer from Nick Saban, he told me he likes what he's seen in me as a QB," Harris said soon after the event wrapped-up. "He likes the way I throw and he wants me back at camp this summer."

Very relived with the first extension to his name, the four-star quarterback from Blackshear (Ga.) Pierce County High was still a bit taken back by all that went down after tours of the new facilities and much more at Alabama.

"I was a little surprised by the offer, but not that much since they've shown a lot of interest in me," he admitted. "But it's unreal to get an offer from a school like Alabama, I have a lot of interest in them."

While passing on naming early favorites at this time, Harris is very thankful to know that a coaching staff believes in his talent.

"Its exciting," he added. "Them showing it to me and that they believe in me is big.

"My interest in them has gone up since they offered."

Harris, who stands 6-foot-4, 210 pounds and performed well at the Under Armour All-America combine last month, will next head to the MVP camp in his home state.

It was there, at the 2012 MVP Camp, where he first mad e his mark and impressed Scout.com/FOX Sports NEXT National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons.
