Harris one of a few Louisiana products remaining

Alexandria (La.) safety Nic Harris is one of the top players left on LSU's board and a must get for new head coach Les Miles.

The 6-3, 207-pounder received a call from LSU defensive backs coach Kirby Smart a week ago but he is still waiting to hear from the Tigers' new head man.

"Coach Smart called and said to be expecting a call but I hadn't heard from him," Harris told Tiger Rag. "Coach Smart said I was one of the first guys he asked about but that was all he said."

Miles recruited Harris briefly while he was at Oklahoma State but the two never really had a chance to build much of a rapport.

"I talked to him once when Oklahoma State offered but that was it," Harris said. "When I told him they didn't make my top five they stopped calling. All I know is what his record was at Oklahoma State."

The coaching shakeup at LSU affected some prospects the Tigers were in good shape with but it was hard to get a good gauge on how much it had to do with Harris.

What we do know is that he already made his decision and let all of the coaches know of his intentions. The finalists were Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Michigan, Nebraska and the Tigers.

"To a certain extent it doesn't matter," Harris said of the coaching change. "I feel firm with my decision regardless of what coaches are there. I based my decision on facilities and what the school has to offer. I looked at how comfortable I felt and how at home I felt."

Harris would not give any hints as to what he school selected but he will announce his decision at a press conference at his school on National Signing Day.
