Learning Experience For Harris

Courtney Harris made an early commitment to the University of Miami and is one of very few top recruits who only take one visit. "It just became real clear to me early on that Miami is where I needed to be," Harris said.

"After they offered me, I just knew that was the best situation for me. I never really became interested in taking visits and checking out other schools because I had given my word by Miami."

Harris, 6-3 and 240 pounds, took the visit to UM over the weekend. He came away very impressed.

"We were all having a lot of fun just hanging out and stuff," he said. "I was with Thomas Carroll a lot. He's real cool and was just telling me what it's like down there."

The talented defensive end said he enjoyed meeting with the coaches and watching tape of current UM defensive ends.

"While watching them, I got a chance to see how they play and the different schemes and stuff they run," he said.

So is Harris confident in his ability to play with the Hurricanes?

"Man, I'm ready," he said. "Knowing what I can do, I'll be up for the challenge. One of the great things about playing at Miami is you dont just compete on Saturdays. You gotta be competing every day during practice and every day during the offseason. If you let up, you may lose your spot."

Harris will make it official on Feb 2.

"That's all that's left now," he said. "I'll officially be in on signing day."

Harris is a full academic qualifier.
