AARON HARRIS, LB, 6-0, 232, 4.6 NORTH MESQUITE, TEXAS:
"I had a personal trainer this summer, Damien Patterson, who has helped me improve my speed and agility. A friend of mine, Jason Bengamine, told me about him and he is playing at Rice now. Damien has been great for me this summer. I work with bungee cords, hip exercises, change direction drills among others that just improves my overall athletic ability. I haven't run a new forty in some time, but I know I am quicker in my short burst," said Harris.
"I am looking forward to football starting. I can't wait to get back out on the field and start hitting people. I want to get bigger and stronger, especially through my shoulders, because I just want to fly around on the football field and not worry about injuries or anything."
"I have been visiting schools this summer. I went to UCLA, Texas A&M, Texas and Oklahoma. I have kind of ruled out UCLA at this point, but the other three schools are my top three."
"I really think Oklahoma is a great school and I really enjoyed my visit down there. One of my main things in recruiting is that I want to play early. I realize that a school can't promise me that I will play early, but I know OU doesn't have a lot of depth at linebacker. I like Texas a lot because I have talked to Roy Williams a lot and Mack Brown, and I know that I will fit in down there. I have always liked Texas A&M. I have a friend that went there (Brandon Webb) and Coach Slocum has told me that I would start off no worse than on second team."
"I don't have a leader, because I haven't been able to find out everything I need to about each school. I haven't even had the opportunity to talk to players at Oklahoma and what they say will mean a lot to me in making my decision."
"I will also visit Florida State, so as the football season goes along I may get a few more schools involved. I don't know if I want to go real far away from home. Oklahoma, Texas and Texas A&M are all 3 ½ hours apart."
