Q&A with Jacory Harris

Jacory Harris talked following the first day of fall camp at Miami. Read on to see what he was talking about heading into preseason practices.

Q: What have you seen from the wide receivers?
A: They are all getting better. We have a lot of talented guys pushing each other and really competing. They are getting faster and getting better running their routes. They are all working hard to be that stand out guy. It is a lot of fun to have that much talent.

Q: Do you have a favorite target?
A: The open guy. It does not matter who it is.

Q: What does it mean to you guys to have such great talent at running back?
A: It means a lot. You need a great running game to complement your passing game and vice versa. Those guys are going to make life easier for me. We have a lot of great players there and it is really going to help us.

Q: How does Javarris look so far?
A: He is finally healthy. He is a load out there. He is running with a lot of passion. He dropped some weight and looks faster and stronger at the same time.

Q: What do Tommy Streeter and Kendal Thompkins bring to the team?
A: They can both help. Streeter is so tall and he is one of the fastest wide receivers on the team. He can really stretch the field. Kendal has great hands and is real shifty and elusive once he gets the ball.

Q: What does it mean for you guys to have Dedrick Epps return so quickly from injury?
A: It means a lot. It shows he is a strong individual. He is a great player and he really helps us. Him getting back so quick shows us how much he cares about the team and how hard he is willing to work.

Q: What does Miami need to do this year?
A: It is time ot win the ACC. We have been it for a few years already and it is time to win it.

Q: Do you guys talk about winning the conference this year?
A: We just talk about Florida State. All our focus is on beating FSU. We are going to take it one game at a time.

Q: How much weight have you put on?
A: I have put on about 15 pounds. I went from 175 to 190. I think it will help with my durability and help me get through the season.

Q: How do you feel about your offensive line?
A: I trust my offensive line. Those guys are working hard and getting better every day. I am completely confident in our line.

Q: How is dealing with the heat in practice? Does it get tiring at time?
A: It is just something you have to deal with. It is Miami it is always going to get hot. We love football though. This is what we love doing. We all come out here and have fun and work hard.
