QB Harris Ready for Notre Dame Visit

Taft School (Watertown, Conn.) class of 2015 quarterback Quentin Harris will be at Notre Dame on Friday, and he spoke about his expectations with IrishEyes.com.

Taft School (Watertown, Conn.) class of 2015 quarterback Quentin Harris camped at Duke and received an offer, has one from Boston College and another from Yale.

Friday he is heading to the midwest to camp and Notre Dame and see where he stands with the Irish.

"I'm not expecting an offer or anything like that," the 6-foot, 180-pound Harris said. "I know (assistant) coach (Bob) Diaco has been in contact with my coach and he's come to the school a few times to talk to him. I'm hoping to show them the skill set I have to offer, get a chance to meet the coaching staff, get a feel for the school and look around the campus a little bit.

"I'm trying to do a little bit of that, and if I get a chance to talk to the coaches a little bit afterward, and see what they want out of their program and see where it is heading, and if I'm a good fit for them."

Harris was a backup to a senior quarterback last season and he completed 27 of 48 passes for 523 yards, four touchdowns and one interception, and he ran for 135 yards.

"I know they brought in Malik Zaire this year, which is a guy similar to my (size) right now," he said. "I'm about 6-foot, 180 (pounds). So I do know they recruit that type of quarterback. You don't have to be 6-4, 6-5."

Harris also is looking to learn more about Notre Dame as a school.

"I don't know too much," he said. "They're been some recruiters come to Taft, not from football but from the academic office, and they've talked about it."
