Big play wide receiver holding 15-20 offers

There is a very deep crop of wide receivers from Texas this year. The latest to pop up on the recruiting radar is Steven Harris from Lewisville (Texas) Hebron. Harris has big-play ability and that is why some of the nation's best teams have already come knocking at his door and ponied up an offer.

Steven Harris has been in school now for over two weeks. His summer night have ended earlier for him, but the 5-foot-11.5, 197-pound wide receiver from Lewisville (TX) Hebron says that he made the most of it and so did his team through seven on seven.

"I think that I did really good when it comes to that," Harris said. "I came in to the summer weighing about 182 or 183. I am currently up to 190 or so. Team-wise, we really came together. A quarterback, Chris Miller, has stepped and I think that he will take us where we need to go. He is a play-maker."

The exact number of offers for Harris is kind of hard to come up with because there are so many. "I couldn't tell you. Probably somewhere around 15-20."

The process for taking all of the offers and trimming it down will include Harris looking at some key factors in picking out where he wants to go to school. "The city and where it's located at, the surroundings of the university and whether or not I am going to be able to get a shot to play my freshman year or not. Also if they are a winning program or not."

There might be a distance factor when it comes to getting Harris to leave home. However, if the offers is the best opportunity and fit he could see himself leaving for those reasons. "Kind of. I really don't want to get away, but if I think that something further away is my best offer that will fit me then I think that I could go somewhere else."

Harris has already been doing some research on the schools and has a top three and a few other schools that will be considering to make it into his top five.

"I do have it to a top three, but there is also a top five. There are really just some schools that just switch every once in a while. The top three definitely would be Oklahoma, Iowa and Arizona. Wisconsin, Nebraska, Texas and Colorado are right there."

"Nebraska has always been in my top five. I am going to start setting up official visits to these schools before my first game. Oklahoma, Iowa, Arizona and Nebraska would get my officials right now for sure. Everything changes, but right now that is what I am thinking."

Harris mentioned that he ran a 4.57-second 40-yard dash at the Nike combine at TCU, but isn't sure what it might be now. As a sophomore he earned all-district honors as a wide receiver. Last year he earned all-district honors at wide receiver and defensive back. He had 39 receptions for 626 yard, averaging 16.1 yards per reception, and nine touchdowns. On defense he had 75 tackles and nine interceptions.
