5-Star DB: Miami is coming back

Brandon Harris led Booker T. Washington High School to their first ever state championship this past Saturday. The 5-star cornerback also played wide receiver and quarterback for the Tornadoes this season. He talked about his state championship and the latest in his recruitment.

"It was exciting to be able to go out in style my senior year," said Brandon Harris "It was nice winning that title knowing it would be the last time I would play with that group of coaches and players. It was really exciting."

Now that the football season has ended Harris can shift his focus to his recruitment and another sport he excels at.

"I will play in two all star games and run track after those games are over. We won the state championship in track last year."

Harris has already visited two schools and is setting up his final visits so he can make the decision on his college destination.

"I visited the University of Florida and LSU already. I liked the players there. The will do whatever it takes to win. I am planning to visit the University of Miami and Ohio State some time in January. I am also trying to set up a 5th visit. I am not sure with what school yet."

The 5-foot-10 175 pound cornerback has also had several coaches stop by his house already and will certainly have others come by after the dead period is over.

"I had several coaches that stopped by and talked to me and my family. I had coaches from Wisconsin , Ohio State , LSU and Tennessee stop by. I think more coaches will come in January."

The 5-star prospect has schools from around the country competing for his services.

" Miami , LSU, Ohio State , and Florida are some of my top schools. I am still considering a lot of schools. I will make my decision on National Signing day."

Harris has two teammates in wide receivers Davon Johnson and Thearon Collier that are already committed to the University of Miami . Harris talked about what he liked about his hometown program.

"Miami is a great program. They have a winning tradition. They have been down for the last few years, but they are doing a great job recruiting right now. They are getting back to what they are supposed to be."

Harris is fully qualified academically and would have had the chance to graduate early if he had chosen to.

"My GPA is 4.2 and my SAT score is an 880 and my ACT score is a 20. I took those tests when I was a sophomore."

Harris did it all for his high school team. Whether he was running the ball, throwing the ball, or blanketing wide receivers he was a nightmare for opposing coaches. He talked about what he would bring to the school he chooses to go to.

"I am very fun to watch, said Harris. "I am an aggressive player. I play with a lot of energy. I just love being out on that field making plays and helping my teammates."
