Texas DB Interested in Visiting Ames

Bret Harris is one of the hottest prospects around in the state of Texas and his stock as a DB is rising. Iowa State is in the mix along with 11 other schools. Where does ISU stand on Harris's growing list? Find out here in the CN recruiting update on Bret Harris.

Bret Harris is a 6'0, 192 pound safety out of MacArthur HS in Irving and he is one of the hottest players in the state of Texas. Harris already holds offers from 12 schools and he told CN that ISU is up towards the top on his growing list.


"I like Iowa State. In this past year I watched them the most," Harris said. "It seems like they play with a lot of emotion. It seems like they care about the game a lot. That caught my attention."


Along with Iowa State: Nebraska, Tulsa, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, TCU, Kansas State, Arizona State, Missouri, San Diego State, Tulane and Rice have offered Harris.


From the looks of things right now, Iowa State is going to get Harris in for a visit in the fall.


"I'm thinking about going up there for a visit. I'm trying to find a way up there," Harris said.


When it comes to landing this prospect, two things are going to be important. Number one is Harris's comfort level at his new school.


"I want to feel comfortable wherever I go. I have to be there for four or five years," Harris said. "I feel comfortable talking to their (ISU) coaches."


The other big variable for Harris is playing time.


"I don't want to go somewhere where I'll have to sit for three years. I know that everybody has to wait their turn but I don't want to sit."


Harris said that he hadn't looked at Iowa State's roster for depth at his position but he plans on doing it in the future.


Iowa State is joined at the top of Harris's list by Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Arkansas.


"I do want to see what Nebraska is like and I might go check out Oklahoma State or Arkansas maybe."


Harris told CN that it's clear that he wants to play in either the Big 12 or the SEC.


In his junior season, Harris recorded 77 tackles, two sacks, five pass break-ups and had six tackles for a loss.


"I really care for the game and play my hardest every play," Harris said.
