Wolverines Sit As Top School For Harris

Michigan had many recruits on campus this weekend including highly touted Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones High School junior safety A.J. Harris. The talented Alabama native talks about his time spent in Ann Arbor and if a decision could be on the horizon.

The Wolverines hosted several prospects on Saturday and one of the visitors included Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones High School unior safety A.J. Harris. The four-star prospect traveled to Ann Arbor for an unofficial visit and left feeling very impressed.

“It was great,” Harris told The Michigan Insider. “I got a tour of the campus, a tour of the Big House and also got to talk to the academic counselor and got to view practice, so pretty much the whole deal. I talked to every single coach and they all said they love me and want me to become a part of their family.”

One aspect that really stood out for the 6-0, 174-pound athletic defensive back on the trip was the top academic pedigree offered from the Maize and Blue.

“It’s a great school to do engineering,” said Harris. “Any program that you want to do you will have success doing at Michigan.”

After capping off his visit to U-M, the Wolverines now sit as his leader for a few reasons.

“They are my top school,” said Harris. “They are just from the academic standpoint. One of the best out of any school I have visited and by far the best coaching staff that you will get at the college level. Being around those guys just gave them a huge edge actually. (Committing on the visit) did (cross my mind) a lot, but it wasn’t the first time.”

Scout’s No. 268 overall rated prospect looks to finalize his recruitment in the near future and has a few factors he will take into his consideration when the time comes.

“(I plan to commit) soon,” said Harris. “I will look for great academics, somewhere I will be comfortable living the next 4-5 years of my life and just the coaches treating the players like family, not like a business.”
