DeMatha Catholic High (Hyattsville, Md.) 2016 running back Lorenzo Harrison might be young, but he is already attracting interest from some major college programs.
The 5-foot-7, 183-pound ball carrier has been hearing from the likes of: Vanderbilt, Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee and Maryland among others. Harrison came out to College Park for Maryland's one-day camp looking to impress the coaching staff.
"Coach Locksley has been saying he really likes me and he wanted me to come up to camp today because I haven't really had time to come here yet," Harrison said. "So I am just going to show them what I can do and see if I can pick up an offer."
Being so early in the process, Harrison said right now he is mainly focused on building relationships.
"It is really important to me to build a relationship with Maryland because they are my hometown team," Harrison said. "I just like the team, they seem like something I would want to be a part of in the future."
The Stags' young standout compares his style of play to an NFL player, that is well known in Harrison's hometown.
"I look up to Ray Rice. I would kind of compare myself to him," Harrison said. "Most of the coaches are just saying they like the way I run and my work ethic."
Aside from Maryland, Harrison has also camped and NC State, Vanderbilt, Tennessee and Rutgers. He plans to return to Maryland later this summer with the rest of his DeMatha Catholic teammates for the Terps team camp in July.
