Alexandria S Harris reels in big offers

Texas A&M was the first school to offer Alexandria safety Nick Harris a scholarship but the Aggies will have plenty of company once college coaches make their way to central Louisiana in May.

At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and a 4.6 forty yard dash time it is easy to see why Harris is so attractive to Division-I schools. To go along with his physical attributes, he is also very good in the classroom and academically qualified to plays as a true freshman.


"He has the size, speed, intelligence and grades," said Alexandria head coach Butch Stoker. "He has everything. He has some areas to improve on but he has a knack for being where the ball is. He is a pretty big hitter but I think he can be better."


Harris picked off 10 passes from his free safety spot as a junior and picked up All-State and All Central Louisiana honors.


The list of schools sending letters and requesting film is too long for Stoker to recall off the top of his head but one school that will be a key player for his services is LSU.


"He is getting letters and everything from everybody," Stoker told Tiger Rag. "I think every kid in Louisiana is obviously interested in LSU and he is too. He will have ample opportunities to go somewhere."


Some schools have hinted at the notion of moving Harris to linebacker due to his size and Stoker feels he could make the transition in college with a little more work.


"Physically he is good enough to play wherever they put him but he is not a polished tackler," Stoker said. "He doesn't lack courage he's just not polished. He has a tremendous amount of potential that hasn't been developed yet."
