Oklahoma Athlete Is Dual Threat

Muskogee high school's Kyler Harris is a versatile athlete that college coaches can play on offense or defense. Harris tripped to ULM to watch their spring game and was told he can decide which side of the ball he want's to play on for the Warhawks.

"The thing I took from my visit to ULM was they have a great coaching staff that truely believes they can win", said Kyler Harris.

The Oklahoma native scored 7 touchdowns and tallied 1,093 yards as a junior on 17 rushes and 60 receptions. Harris also returned 7 kick offs for 200 yards with a long of 56.

Defensively Kyler was a big hitter from his safety position for Musgokee. With 29 tackles and an interception it was his threat at safety that made opposing receivers keep their head on a swivel.

"Coach Vice and I talk all the time". "He's an Oklahoma boy and he is hilarious. Coach Vice makes me feel very welcome and he always answers any questions I have".

As for playing a position in college Harris said the Warhawks have left it up to him. "ULM just told me if I decide to go there then I can decide". "To be honest it really doesn't matter to me, I just want to help the team win".

To date the Warhawks are the only team to offer Harris with Tulsa, Colorado, Colorado State, Vanderbilt, and Stanford still sending letters to his home.

"I am going to play out my senior season and see what else comes my way. I want to keep my options open and not jump in too early", said Harris.

The Warhawks do have a little extra help in the recruiting department for Kyler. "Jeremy Burton is in my ear all the time", joked Harris. He trys to talk ULM up to me as much as possible. He want's me down there with him. I don't blame him, I would be doing the same if the roles were reversed".

Burton was part of the Warhawks 2010 class signing to play offensive guard for ULM.

Warhawk Nation will continue to update Kyler throughout his senior season.
