During Harlan's visit to Knoxville earlier this month the Volunteers looked at the rising senior at multiple positions, including safety.
"Everything went real good," Harlan told InsideTennessee. "I worked at a bunch of different positions. They are really looking at me at safety. I caught routes and worked out at defensive back.
"If I work hard and come back for the next camp I should get an offer."
All of a sudden, quarterback isn't the only position Harlan, who plays safety for his high school, is focusing on.
"I just do what they tell me to do and whatever they need me to work on I will do it," he said. "I don't care where I play. I really don't have a position I prefer."
Harlan, who has 4.5 40-yard dash speed, knows he has the physical build to play on the other side of the football in college.
"They told me my size is good for the safety position and I am just trying to make it to the top level," he said. "Whatever I have to do to make it I am going to do it."
"Today was my first time meeting coach Ansley," he said. "We talked a bunch after the camp and he seemed really interested in me."
The Mount Pleasant, Tenn., native was wowed by not only the facilities on Rocky Top, but the family atmosphere that current players created during his visit.
"I like the facilities and the players on the team," Harlan said. "They show you a bunch of love. The field and how to coaches work with you — they tell you what you need to work on and they are really specific."
