QB Out Taking Trips

Jacob Harrison has been putting up big numbers since landing the starting job as a freshman at Dayton Chaminade-Julienne, and he is one of the top 2016 quarterback prospects in Ohio. Several schools are showing interest right now.

Ohio looks to have a strong crop of quarterbacks for the class of 2016, and Dayton Chaminade-Julienne's Jacob Harrison is one to watch in-state.

Harrison, 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, broke into the starting lineup as a freshman two years ago and has put up great numbers ever since. He is poised to have a strong junior season.

"I've added muscle in the off season, and that's added more zip on my throws," Harrison stated. "I've always been very accurate, and I'm seeing improvement in every area, including velocity. My footwork is also much better."

"From my freshman year to right now is different because my confidence level is so much higher," he added. "I'm a much better player overall, and I'm older which makes being a leader a lot easier. I still have two more seasons to go, but the progress has been good."

With an early offer from Akron to his credit, Harrison has begun drawing recruiting interest. He has taken several unofficial visits.

"I'm in touch with a lot of schools, and I'm trying to get to know different coaches," he explained. "I visited Ohio State last weekend, which was great. I met with Coach (Tom) Herman, which was really nice. He wants to see me throw in camp, and I'm good with that."

"Ohio State is a school I'm very interested in, and it's one of the top programs in the country," he continued. "I visited Cincinnati last weekend for the spring game, and I really liked it there. They were great to me, and showed me a lot of interest. They want me to come down there for a private workout, and I'm going to do that."

"I'm going to Tennessee this weekend, and they were at my school last winter to see me," Harrison said. "I'm looking forward to seeing the campus and meeting the coaching staff. I will also be going to Akron in a few weeks, and they are the school that has offered. We've stayed in contact, and I've been there before."

As a sophomore, Harrison threw for 2,771 yards and completed 67% of his passes. He threw for 19 touchdowns and ran for another 13 touchdowns.
