Oklahoma was scheduled to meet with standout safety prospect Nic Harris tonight, but they ran into a problem.
"They put me in the hospital last night," said Harris of his family. "They say that I have been pushing myself too hard with training, school and recruiting, and then more training, school and recruiting. At this point I don't know of any other way to go about my life. This is my last year in high school and I want to finish well in school and my training can never take a back seat. My decision where I am going to go to school is going to be one of the biggest decisions that I am ever going to make and I have to make sure that I make the right one. I guess everything caught up with me and now I need to rest a little bit."
While Harris may be resting physically in the hospital, he is not taking time off from his recruiting with his two leaders trying to make one last impression.
"Michigan just left my hospital room and they stayed for about an hour and a half," said Harris. "It was a good visit and I tried to hang in there for it. Oklahoma is going to come by tomorrow and I look forward to that visit. I hope to get good nights sleep so I can be totally alert for that visit."
Many feel that Harris is a heavy lean to Michigan. Harris has been another athlete that has not tipped his hand, but tonight he didn't sound like an athlete that had a decision made between Oklahoma and Michigan.
"Man, this is really tough on me and it is getting real hard," said Harris. "There is so much to like about both schools and both schools are so great. I don't have a decision yet. This is going to be a very tough decision to make."
Harris says he will announce on signing day, but in the meantime the doctors plan on keeping him at the hospital until Tuesday. That should give Harris plenty of time to think about his future.
