Harris Lands KSU Offer
Blue Valley (KS) offensive tackle A.J. Harris traveled to Manhattan on Saturday with one goal in mind. The 6-foot-4, 280-pound blocker was out to show why he was worthy of a Division 1 offer. After working with the staff at Kansas State, Harris found a lot to like about the Wildcats. "I thought the techniques fit me really well," the 2015 prospect said of KSU's offensive line play. "They were easy to pick up. I thought the one-on-one drills were what really helped me. I just destroyed people, really manhandled them." Harris knew he was having a great day on the field, but he soon got the feeling something else could be going on. "The recruiting coordinator kept coming up to me," the Tiger standout said with a smile. "He said ‘I have a really warm feeling about you today, A.J..'" After he had finished his work on the field, Harris got another message. "He said ‘we can't do anything with you on campus, but we want you to call Coach Miller.' I kind of knew they were going to offer." The Blue Valley standout couldn't get to the phone fast enough. "I called Coach Del Miller, and they offered me a scholarship," he said of the K-State assistant. "He said they really liked how well I moved for how big I am. They like my feet and my natural aggressiveness. They see me more as an inside player." Harris was clearly impressed with Kansas State when he left Manhattan Saturday afternoon. "I liked it a lot," he said, nodding his head. "I got along really well with their line coach, Coach Dickey. Throughout the entire camp, every single coach gave a speech about life. I could tell they knew what they were talking about. Playing for Coach Snyder, you realize you could be playing for one of the top 5 greatest coaches of all time, and you know he's going to have the best staff he can get." "I definitely want to go up to some games this fall and tour the campus. I haven't really been on campus yet to get a tour of the facilities. Maybe go up for a practice if there is one I can get to."
