Marrero (La.) Ehret linebacker De’jon Harris says he has three programs that are recruiting him the hardest. Which ones are they and what are his spring and summer plans? Find out below

Over two months since landing his first FBS offer fromOregon, Marrero (La.) Ehret linebacker De’jon Harris’ recruitment has received a significant boost.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound three-star prospect is currently armed with additional offers from Arkansas, Memphis, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas State and several others and now he's looking forward to a busy evaluation period.

The likes of Oregon, Arkansas, UCLA, LSU, Memphis and more will be stopping by Ehret to evaluate Harris over the spring and as of right now a few programs are recruiting him harder than others.

“Really I have three that’s been on me the most,” he said. “It’s Oregon, TCU and Arkansas.”

With the Ducks, Harris noted that his relationship with defensive coordinator Don Pellum has grown plenty over the past couple of months. The two engage in weekly phone conversations and message each other on a near-daily basis on Twitter according to Harris.

“He asks a lot of questions on how I’m doing, about my grades, how I’m doing in school, my recruitment," Harris said. "He’s telling me about what he likes about me on the field, some things that I can work towards if I do choose to go up there to them.”

Harris intends on taking an official visit to Oregon in the fall. He could be accompanied by his teammate, four-star linebacker Michael Divinity, who also holds an offer from the Ducks. Divinity plans on being an early enrollee while Harris will stay through his senior year, but the two haven’t ruled out playing together at the next level.

“We still talk about it,” he said. “As far as a package or anything, I think the only chance right now is probably with Oregon.”

Harris said that his relationships with Arkansas and TCU are just as strong as his relationship with Oregon. He’ll take in the Arkansas spring game a week from Saturday in Fayetteville.

“I hope I can check out the campus because I’ve never been up there,” he said. “I’ve heard a lot of good things about them.”

Over the summer Harris plans on camping with LSU, Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
