Missouri Makes Receivers Short List

With the July here you are seeing not only the weather heat up but recruiting as well. ShowMeMizzou.com talks with a 3-Star wide receiver who updates us on his interest in the Missouri Tigers and his string of unofficial visits he is planning this month.

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2013 WR prospect Tyree Harris  6'2"  184   Marietta (GA), who holds a Missouri offer, and who is planning to trip to Missouri this summer.

"I like Missouri,"  explained Harris.   "They're up there.  I'm still trying to make it there (for a visit)."

Harris also indicated that Missouri receivers coach Andy Hill is his primary contact with the Tigers.

Harris reports offers from Cincinnati, Mississippi State, Syracuse, Wake Forest, Boston College, Buffalo, FIU, Georgia State, Marshall, Ohio, South Alabama, TCU, and Troy, in addition to Missouri.

Harris has already visited Mississippi State, and Wake Forest.  He said that he's planning to visit Cincinnati, Clemson, Syracuse, and Missouri during July.

Harris has run a 4.46 forty, and he has posted a 35" vertical jump and a 4.04 second shuttle time.

Harris said that "everyone's even right now", although he does appear to have done some narrowing down as evidenced by his planned visits.

"I'm going to try to make it to Missouri before the season starts,"  explained Harris.  "So, probably in mid-July.  That's when I'm going to try to make it up there, in mid-July."

Later, Harris did name a narrowed list of schools, including Wake Forest, Missouri, Cincinnati, Mississippi State, and UCLA.  He said that the Bruins have yet to offer, after recently entering his recruitment.

And, after having previously postponed his decision, he said that he'd like to make a final decision prior to the beginning of the season.

"I'm trying to make it to all of the schools that I like before I make a decision,"  explained Harris.

Earlier, Harris had indicated that he'd like to play in the SEC. 

ShowMeMizzou.com will have more on Harris later.
