Sam Webb: Talk about last season. How did everything go for you on the football field last year?
Ja’Von Harrison: “Everything went good. I was coming in as a sophomore, and I just had to learn everything. But I got it down pat. I played both sides, but I mainly play receiver. On defense I had one interception, I had like seven tackles and three solo tackles. At receiver I had like 20 catches and almost 400 yards and two touchdowns.”
Ja’Von Harrison: “Virginia Tech offered me at DB – well they actually said they’ll offer me whatever I want to play, you know. I want to play DB. And Michigan offered me as a DB.”
Sam Webb: Which secondary position do you play and which one do you want to play in college?
Ja’Von Harrison: “It was corner last year, but I really want to play safety (in college). If they need me at cornerback, I’ll play it.”
Sam Webb: What’s your height, your weight, and your 40 time?
Ja’Von Harrison: “My height – last time I checked it was 6-3, and last time I checked my weight I was 192.”

Sam Webb: So have you been to any college campuses yet on visits?
Ja’Von Harrison: “No, not yet.”

Ja’Von Harrison: “Probably taking care of my daughter. That will be the main factor.”
Sam Webb: One of the obvious questions is, is distance from home going to be a factor for you when you start looking at all these schools?
Ja’Von Harrison: “No sir, it shouldn’t be.”
Sam Webb: Well, how about this? You’re a Florida guy... what about the weather? Think you can handle the weather up north?
Ja’Von Harrison: “I’ve been wanting to get up north and get into the weather, try it, see how it is.”
Sam Webb: Regarding timeline for making a decision... have you thought about when you might want to make your choice?
Ja’Von Harrison: “Not yet. First I have to (narrow things down to) a top three, top five. “
Sam Webb: Do you have an early top list of schools?
Sam Webb: Do Michigan and Virginia Tech sort of fit in there, or are they outside that group?
Ja’Von Harrison: “I count them in the group. They were the first two to offer me, and I think they’re great. “
Sam Webb: Now do you think you’re going to wind up taking visits to Virginia Tech and to Michigan?
Ja’Von Harrison: “I’m going to end up going most places. “
