The No. 9 linebacker in the nation according to Scout.com is Nic Harris from Alexandria, La., High School. However, he insists he will play safety in college, and that is where he is being recruited.

With Michigan losing out in the battles for top players Justin King from Pennsylvania, and Victor Harris from Virginia, will the Wolverines be able to bring in one of the top players in the South?

"I've already made my decision," Harris told GBW. "It is down to the final five schools on my list, Michigan, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Nebraska. I will announce on Signing Day."

Harris said the reason for waiting is that he will be keeping a recruiting diary for the local Alexandria newspaper, The Daily Town Talk. "I'll keep updating things daily," he said.

The 6 foot 3, 210-pound Harris said that the coaches he has become closest to, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops and Michigan head man Lloyd Carr, were recently in his home. "Coach Stoops was here two Sundays ago, and Coach Carr was here two Wednesdays ago," he said. "I haven't told any of the staffs where I'm going; everyone will find out when I announce."

One major question is the uncertainty of the coaching situation at one of his favorites. LSU head coach Nick Saban was recently offered the same position with the NFL's Miami Dolphins, though he has yet to accept. Would Saban's departure affect Harris' choice? "What's happening at LSU isn't a concern," Harris said. "I've already made my decision."

Harris had a great senior season, with 11 interceptions on the year along with 93 tackles.
