The Alexandria, La Trojans came close to forcing a second overtime against Leesville Friday night at Leesville.

After the game, Trojan defensive back Nic Harris had to catch a flight to Ann Arbor to begin his official visit to Michigan. He couldn't have picked a better game to attend as the Wolverines erased a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the game and eventually won in the third overtime, 45-37. "It was just a great game," Harris said. "It was a classic game, you can't say anymore about it than that. I had a great time."

Harris has already visited Oklahoma on Sept. 10 and Texas A&M on Sept. 19 and was making his first trek to Michigan. He was still in Michigan when GBW caught up with him Sunday evening, planning to leave Monday morning. He said he was very impressed with the area, but wasn't ready to make his decision. "I didn't commit," he said. "I really like it here in Michigan, I like it a lot, but I'm not ready to decide yet." Harris scheduled to LSU on Nov. 19, and to Nebraska on Nov. 26. "I'll probably make those trips and then decide," he said.

The 6 foot 3, 210-pound defensive star said he had a chance to talk at length with Michigan defensive backs coach Ron English about where he would play at Michigan. "I want to play free (safety)," he said. "We talked a lot about whether I could play free or strong, he (English) told me I could play strong too, but I like free."

There were two Harris' in town for the game, and they got together for a little chat. "I met Victor Harris for the first time and we talked about things, and the recruiting process," he said.
