"LSU is the team to beat," said Harris, who is coming off of a super junior campaign where he picked off 10 passes, made 125 tackles and took home First-Team All-State honors. "I am leaning there because of the comfort thing. There was a rumor going around that I was going to commit to LSU but as of now I am open to listen to the others. At any time, though, I could pull the trigger with LSU."
The Tigers' coaching staff has put in a lot of time and hard work with Harris and that is something that has not gone unnoticed.
"They are going that extra mile and making sure I am comfortable with everything," Harris said. They are making sure I am taken care of."
More than 20 other schools have tried to make a lasting impression with the Alexandria native and extended a scholarship offer including Michigan, Miami, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State. Out of that impressive group Miami, Nebraska, Michigan, Texas A&M and Oklahoma have made the biggest strides.
"Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Michigan are the others I am keeping a close eye on," he said. "I do not have a favorite out of that group because those are all good schools."
LSU will get Harris' first official visit the weekend of the Oregon State game (9/3) with Texas A&M (9/17) and Nebraska (10/1) to follow. As for the other two we will just have to wait and see.
That is assuming Harris does not pull the trigger and put an end to all of the madness.
