Harris Among Visitors This Weekend

With the Tar Heels entrenched in the final three of Jason Harris' favorites list, the Clearwater (Fla.) native will make a trip to Chapel Hill this coming weekend.

"I think they have a very good football program," remarked Harris. "They like to run the ball. From what I hear they have a lot more to offer than just football, so I'm looking forward to going up there this weekend and seeing what they have to offer."

In addition to checking out the campus, Harris is also interested in finding out what position the coaching staff sees the 5-foot-11, 195-pound tailback playing if he becomes a Tar Heel.

"Actually North Carolina, they want me at running back, but they were saying that the defensive coordinator is going to see if I can fit on the defense," explained Harris. "I'll find out for sure this weekend."

Harris would rather play tailback, but states position placement won't be a major factor in his final decision.

Iowa State and South Carolina round out Harris's final three. He visited ISU in early December, and plans to visit USC the weekend after his trip to Chapel Hill. After the visits, he'll make a decision.

Harris's 1,300 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground was one of the few bright spots on a team that went 5-5 and saw an early playoff exit.
