Juan Harris from Parker H.S. in Janesville, Wisconsin just posted on his Twitter page that he has committed to Indiana today. The 6-foot-4, 365-pound defensive tackle is the 10th commit for Kevin Wilson and his staff in the 2017 recruiting class, and the first one from the state of Wisconsin.
Harris made the announcement with this post from his Twitter page:
Harris chose IU over offers from Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Alabama, Iowa State, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Tulane. He told Peegs.com recently that the Hoosiers were standing out for him because of his relationship with defensive line coach Mark Hagen.
"My relationship with Coach Hagen goes really deep,” Harris said. “I have known him for a couple years now and we have a good relationship. He started recruiting me when he was down at Texas A&M. He has let me know that I am a player that he really likes, and he thinks I can come in there and play as a freshman for him. When I talk to him we don’t really talk about football much. He understands my life story, which is pretty unique. So we don’t talk about football all that much, but when we do he lets me know that he thinks I can be a game changer for their defense. Indiana is really known for their offense, but defensively they struggled a little bit and he thinks I can come in and help right away.”
