4-star safety Todd Harris talks LSU visit, recruitment, and Jamal Adams

2017 four-star Plaquemine (La.) safety Todd Harris recapped his LSU visit and where his recruitment stands.

2017 Plaquemine (La.) four-star safety Todd Harris has been a frequent visitor to LSU during his recruitment and while the local safety hasn't been worried about recruitment much. You could tell he enjoyed the scene and taking in LSU's home matchup against Mississippi State.

"I enjoyed my time. I saw a lot of great things on the offensive side of the ball and the defensive side of the ball. I saw a lot of great things. I enjoyed the game," Harris said.

Plaquemine moves Harris around constantly to get him into positions to make plays like LSU has used Tre'Davious White and Jamal Adams. The way Dave Aranda uses his personnel has really impressed Scout's No. 1 safety in Louisiana.

"Everyone is just flowing around to the ball. The defensive line is getting after the quarterback. They're not giving up big runs and they're playing solid," Harris said. "I like how they have Jamal in the box and have Rickey at the high safety. It's how our defense kind of plays with me coming down into the box."

Harris talked with defensive backs coach Corey Raymond before the game. The two are keeping in regular contact and Les Miles also chatted with the No. 69 ranked overall player for Scout.

"He just asked me how I was doing and how my game went. I talked to him earlier that week on the phone. He just told me he wished me well. I talked to coach Miles too and that's about it," the 6-foot, 187-pound safety said.

It was Harris' first visit to LSU since the summer and it was just a game to him, which really didn't impact where his recruitment stands.

"It was just the game so everything was really the same. Everybody is even and I'm still just taking my time," Harris said. "I'm going to wait to commit for a while."

This weekend, Harris will head to Ole Miss for a visit. He also plans to visit Alabama when the Crimson Tide face Texas A&M. Arizona State and Alabama will get official visits from Harris for sure. The other three aren't for sure yet. Miami, Arkansas and Mississippi State are still pushing Harris hard.

"A lot of coaches are reaching out to me. A lot of schools send mail, but the coaches that are talking to me are the ones that are serious and I'm going to look more into. They're contacting me on a normal basis."

Harris is eyeing a decision around the All-American game he's scheduled to play in.
