Alexandria S Harris was in town for Troy

Alexandria (La.) free safety Nic Harris took another unofficial visit to LSU for the Tigers' dramatic victory over Troy on Saturday. <br><br> It seems like the Tigers struggle every time the 6-3, 207-pounder is in attendance but somehow they always find a way to win.

"The game was OK," Harris told Tiger Rag. "I don't they should have struggled with Troy but that is college football. You have to be ready to play every week and you can't look ahead."

Harris said he got a chance to talk to most of the coaches on Saturday but they just made small talk.

That is usually the same thing that happens when Nick Saban or (defensive backs coach) Kirby Smart make their one phone call to Harris each week but the conversation often shifts to LSU's needs.

"They say how bad they want me and how bad they need me," said Harris, who has picked off seven passes in leading Alexandria to a 7-1 record. "They say they need safeties."

Harris said there is no confusion about which position Saban is recruiting him for even though many feel that he will end up moving to linebacker at the college level.

"He projects me at safety and that is all I am," Harris said.

There will not be another trip to Baton Rouge for Harris this weekend when Vanderbilt comes to town because he will take his official visit to Ann Arbor, Mich. to check out the Michigan/Michigan State game.

He has already taken officials to Texas A&M and Oklahoma, and he said he will take one to Nebraska (11/26). His official trip to LSU was scheduled for November 19 but that had to be rescheduled for a later date.

Harris remains silent on naming a leader and maintains that his decision will be based on where he feels the most comfortable at.
