RECRUITING: Georgia LB likes OU's winning ways

Conyers, Ga. linebacker Bo Harris update.


Bo Harris is just flat out one of the very best players in the South, and college coaches love him because he has the ability to play two to three different positions.

"I have no idea where I am going to play in college," said Harris. "Some schools say that they are recruiting me to play linebacker, some defensive end, some fullback and some running back. Everybody projects me to play outside linebacker. I don't care where I play, I just want to play."

Harris will play end his senior year as a three-year as a defensive end, tailback and wide receiver. He was one of two running backs to rush for over 1,000 yards at Heritage High last year, and he averaged 5.9 yards per carry.

Last summer, Harris attended to combines at Georgia and Auburn, and he recently attended a combine with the Atlanta Falcons recently.

Harris can bench 335 pounds, squats 445 and has posted a 36-inch vertical jump. He also played basketball his sophomore year, but didn't play a year ago so that he could work out for football. He is going to pick up the game again this year, as well as participate in track for the first time.

Thus far, Harris has been offered by Kentucky, Auburn, LSU and Oklahoma.

"Recruiting is pretty confusing," said Harris. "I haven't been spending much time at it because I have been working hard on my grades and my SATs to make sure if have those rights. Right now I like all the schools. I just want to play football at the next level."

So what about the Sooners?

"I like Oklahoma," said Harris. "I watched them a lot this past season and they are always on television. They are winning and I wouldn't mind playing for Oklahoma."

Harris is still looking to qualify.
