California RB has strong trio of favorites

Running back Andre Harris, a 3-star prospect, has the dangerous combination of size and speed. Interest in the Woodland Hills Taft (CA) High School prospect continues to grow and three programs have recently climbed to the top of his list.

Woodland Hills (CA) Taft running back Andre Harris picked up an offer from San Diego State. There will many more to follow.

Harris posted a ridiculous 4.38 40 time at a recent Sparq event. It's an unbelievable time for a prospect his size. The 6-0, 220 pound running back surprised himself.

"I timed out at 4.0 the first time and then 4.38," Harris said. "I couldn't beleive it when they said what the time was". Harris has been working hard during the off-season. "I've been running the hills every day and working out with my team." The hard work is obviously paying off.

Harris posted a 4.4 shuttle, did 22 reps of 185 pounds on the bench at the same Sparq event and recorded a 36 inch vertical at the Army All-American Combine in San Antonio.

Schools from accross the country are actively recruiting Harris, but he hasn't received many offers.

"Most schools are waiting to see how I do in the classroom," Harris said. "I'm taking summer school classes to make sure I'm alright."

Harris said USC, California and Louisville are his favorites and he's also taking a close look at Michigan, UCLA, Washington State and Notre Dame.

Last season Harris attended Palisades High in Pacific Palisades, California. Transferring to a high profile program like Taft has already paid dividends.

"I'm already getting more attention and better exposure than before," Harris said.

And he hasn't even played a down for the Toreadors.
