Harper a Star in Basketball & Football

Chris Harper, a 6'3" 210 lb WR from Wichita North HS in Wichita, Kansas, has started to see his recruitment pick up. He already has offers from BCS schools and is receiving plenty of interest from schools both near and far. Are the Scarlet Knights also involved with the midwestern athlete?

Chris Harper, a 6'3" 210 lb WR from Wichita North HS in Wichita, Kansas, has started to see his recruitment pick up. He has early offers from both home state schools - Kansas and Kansas State - and has been in contact with coaches at Georgia Tech as well.

"It is great to have both KSU and KU offer me and there seems to be a good amount of interest coming from Georgia Tech. At this point, I am also getting a lot of mail from schools all over the country."

And there is reason for his early interest. Harper, who also stars in basketball and helped lead his team to the city-league basketball championship last year, has recorded a 37" vertical and timed in the 4.5 range. In eight games at WR last year, he amassed over 600 yards receiving and returned 3 kick offs for touchdowns.

"I am big fan of college football. Some of the schools that I follow are Kansas, KSU, Texas, West Virginia, Rutgers, USC, Miami and Ohio State. Those are all programs that I like their style of play and hope to hear more from in the future," said Harper.

He will attend Nike and MSL combines this summer, and as the spring progresses, will decide on which camps to attend.

"I am really open right now, but I want to see what is out there, which staffs and systems I get along with, where I can get playing time and develop as a football player. I also want to evaluate the academics and surrounding area. Hopefully I could find a city school."

Harper, who plans on studying computers, has over a 3.0 GPA and will take his SAT in the near future.
