TIGER RAG Q&A: Nic Harris, Alexandria, La.

Alexandria (La.) safety Nic Harris (6-3, 207, 4.7) took his final official visit last weekend and now it is time to for him to sit down and figure out what his future holds.

Harris is rated the No. 9 linebacker prospect in the country by Scout.com but he insists he will stay at safety at the college level.

Based on the numbers he put up in 2004 and the accolades that have rolled in it would be hard to argue with the young man.

After totaling 10 interceptions as a junior, Harris topped that mark this past season by picking off 11 passes and he was credited with 93 total tackles. His list of awards includes first team All-State, District MVP and Central Louisiana Player of the Year.

Harris got all five of his officials wrapped up after his latest trip to Nebraska and he had already been to LSU, Oklahoma, Michigan and Texas A&M. He said he enjoyed his trip to check out the Cornhuskers but he is not any closer to making a decision.

"I just have to sit down and decide where I want to go," he said.

Harris has been tough to get a bead on as for where he is leaning because all along he has said all five schools have a shot at gaining his signature.

According to the top flight athlete all five are still in the hunt but he did break down some key elements that will play a role in his decision.

Tiger Rag: Which school had the best facilities?

Harris: Texas A&M by far. They were state of the art. It was crazy nice over there. I'm not saying the others were not nice but they stood out the most at A&M.

Tiger Rag: How about the best stadium?

Harris: The Big House (Michigan).

Tiger Rag: What about the best atmosphere?

Harris: LSU.

Tiger Rag: Which school had the best academic support?

Harris: They were all even. They all had something great to offer.

Tiger Rag: Which coaches have you built the strongest bond with?

Harris: Coach (Lloyd) Carr (Michigan) and coach (Bob) Stoops (Oklahoma).

Tiger Rag: Who offers the best opportunity for early playing time?

Harris: I feel like I could play anywhere I go.

Tiger Rag: Where did you feel the most comfortable?

Harris: LSU.

Based on the answers he provided it looks like a four way battle between the Tigers, Sooners, Wolverines and Aggies. Or is it?
