"We go back to school, (on the 5th) hopefully in the next week, I'll be able to make my announcement," said Harrell regarding his timetable to make a decision.
Even better for Spartan fans, Harrell says it's down to just two schools, "It came down to Michigan State and Akron."
Harrell said he had a clear set of criteria for making his decision.
"Academics come first, [second] the way the coaches interact with the players, [third] the way the coaches coach and [fourth] a nice campus, somewhere where I know I'm going to feel comfortable for the next four or five years."
Harrell said he watched the Spartans in the Champs Sports Bowl and he could see himself playing in a bowl game a year from now.
He said his next step is to take some time a little time, discuss tings with his parents and then talk to both coaching staffs.
"I just need time to go and talk to the staffs at both schools and then I'll be ready to announce it."
GSN will stay in touch with Harrell to see if Michigan State is the school that gets his services.
