Harris Likes Oklahoma

Sooners Illustrated was out at the Nike Camp that took place out at TCU this past Sunday along with 300 prospects from all over the country. Multiple prospects stood out including DeVante Harris, three-star cornerback from Mesquite Horn HS in Mesquite (TX).

While getting the chance to showcase their talent out on the practice fields and indoor facility at TCU in Fort Worth (TX) on Sunday the attending prospects were also able to take advantage of some top notch coaching which Harris says he will take home and use.

"You can tell all of them know what they are doing," Harris said about the events coaches. "They were picked to run this for a reason. I'm just going to take what I got and I'm going to take it home with me and use it."

While at the event the 5-foot-11 and 160-pound Harris showed some great footwork with the ability to turn his hips and explode up field. Harris also got to show off his athleticism while going through drills.

Mississippi State, Virginia, SMU and North Texas have all offered Harris and other schools like Baylor, Texas, Texas Tech, Kansas and TCU are also showing him interest. Another school to include in that group is Oklahoma.

"I've heard some a little bit," Harris said about hearing from Oklahoma. "I've been getting some mail and then I talked to Coach Venables on the phone sometimes."

Harris, who had 49-tackles on the year along with three-interceptions and eleven-pass breakups, isn't the biggest corner prospect in the country but seems to fit what the Sooners are looking for in corners as of late with his speed, athleticism and quickness that he possesses.

And when it comes to Oklahoma, Harris definitely has interest.

"Oh I like them," Harris began. "I really like them. I really like them."

The Sooners spring game is coming up this Saturday on April 16th and Harris is looking at attending.

"I might," Harris started. "Probably so, me and my cousin are probably gonna go and we will see what they have to offer."

Decision time will likely come before his senior year for Harris.

"I don't know," Harris began about when he will make his decision. "It's going to be sometimes before my senior year starts. Either the spring or the summer I don't know yet."

The explosive corner prospect claims to have run a 4.27 at his school while usually running a 4.32 or 4.35 on a consistent basis.

Look for Harris' recruitment to blow up moving forward with the skills Harris possesses and stick with Sooners Illustrated as we will continue to bring you coverage of the talented defensive back.
