Harris Recaps Oklahoma Visit

This past Saturday the Sooners held their annual Red & White Spring game while also holding their third junior day of the off-season. DeVante Harris was one of the few prospects who was in attendance and he talked about how the visit went. Check inside for more.

Along with the spring game going on in Norman this past Saturday the Sooner coaching staff also decided to take advantage of having prospects on campus and decided to hold their third junior day. One of the more well known prospects who was in attendance was DeVante Harris who came along with his parents.

Like most junior days the Sooner coaching staff took their chance to show the prospects around the academic centers as well as the locker room. Harris was accompanied by secondary Coach Willie Martinez who let Harris know how he feels about him.

"He seemed like a real cool dude," Harris said about Martinez. "He just told me straight up that he liked me. So, he seemed real cool though."

The red team came out victorious in the spring game 20-14 in a game that had its fair share of big plays. The 5-foot-11 and 160-pound prospect definitely liked what he saw during the game.

His visit to Norman went well as a whole for Harris who said Norman felt like a good fit if he were to decide to be a Sooner.

"Oh I liked it. It was nice. It seemed like it would be a good fit for me if I were to go (there)."

Harris, who holds five-offers at the moment, said he was not offered while on his visit but that Coach Martinez let him know that he wants him to come to the Sooners summer camp this summer that they hold each year so that he can evaluate him more.

"They want me to come to the camp in the summer and they said they will offer me after that," Harris said.

More visits are to come next month and in the summer for Harris which will also depend on who else offers the talented prospect.

"I'm going to Kansas State on May 21st," Harris stated. "And then in the summer time I'm going to go to Virginia. I'm going to see who else offers and then I'm going to take some trips to different places."

It sounds like the Sooners will be one of the teams that will receive an official visit from Harris in the future.

"Oh yes," Harris answered on if the Sooners would get an official visit from him. "Most definitely."

Harris hasn't had the chance to see all the schools that have either offered or are looking at him but the Sooners are one of his top choices he says after this past weekend.

"It's kind of hard to tell because I haven't been to all the schools that have offered me but I'm pretty sure you know they have a good program so it's somewhere in the tops," Harris explained.

Harris and his Mesquite Horn teammates recently started spring ball and a few college programs have already made their way over to see Harris's talents.

"Everything has been going good," Harris said about spring ball. "Texas Tech actually came today. Texas Tech and North Texas came today and watched me. Everything has been going good."

It will be in the late summer when Harris decides to start narrowing down his choices he says so stick with

Sooners Illustrated in the future for more coverage about his recruitment.
