Tre'Shaun Harrison had to wait a little while to receive his first college scholarship offer, but the Class of 2018 standout athlete at Garfield High School in Seattle said he didn’t get frustrated by the recruiting process.
“It was just a waiting process, just step by step, hard work and dedication,” Harrison said.
The playmaker’s patience was rewarded on Tuesday when Harrison received his first scholarship offer — from the University of Missouri.
“It’s huge. It’s very huge,” Harrison told BlackAndGoldIllustrated.com. “I’m really just lost for words right now.”
Harrison got the big news from A.J. Ofodile, Missouri’s director of recruiting.
“They said they watched my film and they liked how I was playing and they offered me,” Harrison said.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound junior does a little bit of everything for his high school, lining up as a wide receiver, running back and defensive back.
Garfield is 7-0 and averaging 45.9 points and nearly 600 yards of offense per game this season. Harrison has 36 catches for 671 yards and three touchdowns and has rushed 23 times for 311 yards and two touchdowns — giving him 982 total yards and five scores. He also has one interception.
Harrison looks like a player who could end up on either side of the ball in college. He said Missouri is recruiting him as an athlete because of his versatility.
The Garfield High School standout should see his recruiting pick up now that he has that elusive first offer to go along with his impressive film. Harrison said he’s also talked with coaches at UCLA, Washington and Wyoming among others.
