WR Claims 10 Offers

Xavier Harris lit up opposing defenses as a junior last season. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla. standout plans on doing the same thing this season.

"I just wanna do whatever I can to help this team win," Harris said. "If that means catching more or less balls, I'm all for it. I wanna win."

Xavier Harris, 5-11 and 170, grabbed 35 balls for over 800 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior last season. The talented wideout, who has been playing football since the age of 12, said there are two reasons why he stands out.

"I run real good routes and I just have the ability to make the tough catches," he said. "I think that's what makes me different when I'm on the field."

Harris, who was on a 4x1 relay team that finished third in the state last season, went to summer camps at Florida, Clemson, and FIU. He came away most impressed with the Gator camp.

"That camp was good," he said. "I learned a lot of new stuff and I had a chance to see some good competition. I enjoyed it."

The talented senior said he hasn't put a whole lot of focus on the recruiting process yet. He is, however, getting plenty of action.

"I have offers from Auburn, Clemson, FIU, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, NC State, USF, UCF, and Bowling Green," he said. "I'm hoping Florida comes through too."

Harris said he also heard from the University of Miami during the May evaluation period.

"They're recruiting me, called in May," he said. "They wanna see what happens during the season. I'm not a fan of UM though. I'm a Gator guy."

Does that mean an offer from the Hurricanes wouldn't mean anything? Harris talked about that.

"Really, no offer means anything to me yet," he said. "I'm trying to stay focused and help my team win. After the season, I'll look at my options and go from there."
