Harris Talks NC State

Tallahassee (FL) Godby linebacker Kris Harris talks about his weekend visit to NC State.

NC State appears set to take another linebacker in the class of 2014 and has shown some interest in Florida standout Kris Harris.

That's one reason Harris decided to take a visit to the school over the weekend.

He didn't even announce he was coming. In that sense Harris did things a little differently than most recruits, but it's clear he put some planning into it.

"I wanted to take an unofficial without really declaring where I was going. I wanted to pop up there to see how they are in action and try to catch them off guard," a laughing Harris said.

According to Harris the coaches passed that test with flying colors. His interest level is higher than it was before he visited.
"It's way, way higher. I can say it's getting close to crunch time and I can say NC State's pretty high up there. I'm trying to close this soon and they were very impressive."

The Tallahassee Godby linebacker said it was the total package that the school has to offer that really impressed him. From the football program to the school itself and all of the people that make NC State what it is Harris could see himself there for the next four or five years.

"I was blown away by the facilities. I loved the coaches and the relationship they have with their players and also by the whole relationship the university has with the football team. They have great academic programs. It seems like the players have no reason to fail with all the academic support staff they have.

"This weekend was probably the best conversation I've had with Coach (Frisman) Jackson. He seems to be an honorable man and a family man. He tells me he'll treat me no different than he treats his kids and that was the impression he gave me. I respect him very much."
