"It's been doing alright," Harris said of his injury. "I still can't practice so I've just been rehabbing it. It will be ready when the season gets here."
Even though Harris can't get in much work the spring evaluation period has still been pretty exciting for him.
"Duke and Air Force have offered," said Harris who rushed for 1,400 yards and 33 touchdowns last season from his quarterback spot. "Coaches from LSU, UCLA, Mississippi State, Tulane, Arkansas and Louisiana Tech have been by so far. I'm keeping an eye on Duke, Stanford, Tulane and LSU. Duke is my leader."
Academics is the main thing Harris is looking at in choosing a college and he said that is the main reason Duke leads for his signature. That, however, could change if LSU puts an offer on the table.
Harris wants to play running back at the next level and LSU has a stockpile at that position. That does not mean the Tigers are not interested in the talented athlete.
"Coach (Derek) Dooley said they are still going to recruit me during the season because they know I'm injured," Harris told Tiger Rag. "He said they are interested but they don't know where they would put me because of the depth in the backfield. An LSU offer would put them and Duke neck-and-neck."
Harris is already fully qualified and just waiting on his senior season to kick off.
