Scouting Report - April 3, 2002: (by Scott Kennedy)
The future possibilities are intriguing, but it would be a mistake to look past the present. Harris is already a dominant player at the high school level. Playing mostly offensive line, Harris thinks he will get more of a shot to play both sides of the ball this year. "I only played 3 games on defense last season," said Harris. "I think that's what I'll play more in college, so I think I'll get more of a chance to play defensive tackle this year. I'd rather play defense; I like the hitting," Marcus added with a laugh.
Several schools have contacted Harris thus far, and he's started to narrow his choices down a bit. "Right now I like Georgia Tech, Clemson, Virginia, Florida, and NC State the best. They all have engineering schools, and I'd like to go to an engineering school." With a 3.3 GPA, when Harris is talking about academics, one gets the distinct impression it's more than window dressing.
Lakeside struggled o a 3-7 record last season, but will return Marcus Harris on both sides of the football. Having a blue chip athlete in the middle of each line is a very good stone for rebuilding. "Towards the end of last year we were starting to come together. We have a new coach this year, and we're returning about 13 starters. We think we'll have a much better year this year."
