Brandon Harris said he didn't do anything special during his workout for Cam Cameron, but what he did was enough to blow away the LSU offensive coordinator.
Cameron made the trip up to Parkway HS in Shreveport on Wednesday to watch the three-star prospect throw in-person for the first time. He left convinced that Harris was the best QB he has evaluated this spring.
Hours later, Harris got a call from LSU coach Les Miles, who extended him an official offer.
"I just did everything I've been coached to do and taught to do," Harris said. "I just worked my faith and everything worked its way out."
Harris has been one of the hottest prospects in the South recently, adding offers from schools like Alabama and Ohio State in recent weeks. His stock has skyrocketed and the combination of his arm strength and athleticism has made him appealing to schools throughout the country — including LSU.
"[Cameron] mentioned the things that have been pointed out by a lot of college scouts — my arm strength, ability to throw the ball from any position," Harris said. "There are a lot of things he liked about me, and Coach Miles told me all of them when my dad and I were on the phone with him."
While several other big-time programs have come calling for Harris, that LSU offer was one that he's had his eye on throughout the process.
"I knew sooner or later that I would end up getting that one," Harris said. "It's basically just a win because I've picked up offers from all the schools I wanted to. It's just a matter of me going to visit. I'm excited."
It appears that Harris has soared up to the top of LSU's list of quarterback prospects. Though DeShone Kizer and Mason Rudolph has received loads of attention from the LSU staff, Harris said Coach Miles was ready to take a commitment from him when the two were on the phone.
"They were trying to persuade me to do it right then and there, but I told him still going to visit those schools," Harris said. "He was telling me to come be their quarterback, ‘it's going to be a fun ride.' LSU is one of the schools that has offered me that I want to go take a look at."
Harris said he has narrowed down his list of offers to seven that he wants to visit this summer, but wasn't ready to release which programs those are. One of those will certainly be LSU, and he plans to have a decision made on July 18.
LSU wants Harris to visit later this month, at which point Harris said he'll make sure to get a better look at what the Tigers do offensively.
"I watched their spring game this year, but I haven't had the opportunity to go back and actually see what's going on [in their system]," Harris said. "I'll make that decision very soon because they want me to come down [for a visit]. It's all so surreal right now. I can't even put my mind back to the spring game."
For Harris — who said he received dozens of text messages in the moments after news broke that he'd gotten the offer — he's still getting used to all the attention, but that it's truly something he deserves.
"I feel so confident in my ability because I've worked so hard," Harris said. "In recent years, I felt my talent went unappreciated, so I started working harder than the next guy, so I could prove to them that I have the potential."
