Harris Has Visits Set

Michigan needs in the defensive backfield appear to be at the cornerback position, although one safety the Wolverines are pursing has Michigan high on the list. <b>Nic Harris</b> from Alexandria, La. high school already has all five of his official visits scheduled. Monday evening he talked about his favorites with GoBlueWolverine Magazine.

At 6 foot 2, 209-pounds and 4.6 speed in the 40, Nic Harris from Alexandria, La. looks destined for the free safety position in college. "That's what every school is recruiting me to play," he said. "That's where I want to play. I'll play wide receiver for my school this year too, but I doubt I'll play there in college, some schools are looking at me for both sides of the ball but we'll see."

Harris sports an impressive list of offers including Michigan, LSU, Ohio State, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Indiana, Texas A&M, and other, over 20 in all. While Harris told GoBlueWolverine Magazine that no school leads, he had reported earlier that Michigan was in his top three, along with LSU and Texas A&M. Harris attended camps at LSU and Texas A&M and will officially visit both schools, LSU on Sept. 4 and Texas A&M Sept. 18 on. He also has official visits set to Michigan on Oct. 30, Nebraska on Oct 2 and Oklahoma on Nov. 13. He did say that he'll need to reschedule the Nebraska visit. "I didn't look at my own schedule when I made that date," he said. "That's our homecoming weekend so I'll need to change that visit."

With the dates set one could assume the schools getting the visits would be the top five for the talented player. That may be the case now, but it's not set in stone. "If I see something somewhere that I really want to check out, I can change things," he said.

Education will be a major factor in Harris' decision. He said he would like to major in kinesiology with the idea of going on to medical school. One school stands out as a total package. "I like what Texas A&M has to offer as a school and for football, they have a real good medical school," he said. "They look good for playing time too. But Michigan and Nebraska look like I could get early playing time, I could probably play my first year at Nebraska. LSU is pretty deep at my position."

Harris said he wasn't getting any pressure from the locals to stay close to home and said his decision could come at any time. "I could decide today, next week, or after the season," he said. "I'm already getting a little tired of this, but it's cool though."
