LSU impresses UNC commit

Three-star S Ronnie Harrison (Tallahassee, Fla.) has been committed to North Carolina since last summer, but he made a trip to Baton Rouge this past weekend for the LSU Spring Game. He was impressed by the visit, and the Tigers are definitely in the mix moving forward.

LSU gave North Carolina commit Ronnie Harrison (Tallahassee, Fla.) something to think about this weekend.

The three-star safety made the trip to Baton Rouge for the Tigers' Spring Game on Saturday, arriving Friday and sticking around until Sunday morning. The coaches rolled out the red carpet for him, and that left a big impression.

"They definitely did put on a show and I had fun," Harrison said. "I will consider going there. They showed us a great time."

Harrison remains committed to the Tarheels, and any other program would have to surpass them to land his signature come Signing Day. He was UNC's first commitment for the 2015 class, jumping aboard this past summer, but he is at least open to other schools.

He was last in Chapel Hill during football season, and he'll return this coming weekend. He wants to use this upcoming trip to make a more thorough evaluation of how LSU compares to UNC.

"I haven't been up there since football season," Harrison said. "LSU is fresh on my mind, so I wouldn't be able to give it a fair comparison right now."

Bradley Dale Peveto has led the recruitment of Harrison since he rejoined the LSU coaching staff. Those two have a relationship dating back to when Peveto was at Kentucky, and that's a big reason why Harrison is considering the Tigers.

This weekend also afforded him the chance to get to know Corey Raymond and some of the other assistants.

"Coach Peveto's a great guy," Harrison said. "He was recruiting me at Kentucky, so me and him have had a long relationship. We've been talking for a long time. Coach Raymond's a great coach. He puts DBs in the league. It's DBU."

Harrison made sure to take notice of LSU's defensive backs during the Spring Game.

"They played physical and fast," Harrison said. "I thought it was a great atmosphere out there. They've got defensive backs like me. They're all tall with long arms. They jam and play man really well."

Harrison plans to return this summer and take part in the Elite Camp this July.

In addition to LSU, he also likes Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Georgia Tech and North Carolina State.

"Right now I'm committed to North Carolina, but my final decision will probably come around the end of summer," Harrison said.
