A commitment for nearly a year and a half, Aledo high school (Tex.) four-star offensive lineman Wes Harris has visited TCU multiple times for games. The Frogs’ matchup with Iowa State gave him a different perspective – it was an official visit.
“It did fell different, the way they treated us. It was a good time,” said Harris. “One of the highlights was hanging out with the offensive line. But going to Coach Patterson’s house on Saturday night was unreal. The place was so nice. It was unreal.”
Harris visited with four-star quarterback Shawn Robinson, who he will look to protect in future years.
“Shawn committed a couple weeks after I did, so we have been close since sophomore year summer,” said Harris.
Harris signed his financial paperwork to TCU while on his visit. While it does not technically legally bind him to the Frogs similar to a National Letter of Intent, it does get the ball rolling on officially enrolling for the spring semester.
“I am locked in,” said Harris. “It was pretty cool. I will tell you what, being around my parents…they told me, ‘if you sign this, it will be hard to get out if you want to down the road.’ Before they even finished the sentence I was signing the papers. I was ready. It was a great feeling.”
It made even more special that he could do it in front of the coaching staff and future teammates.
“We did it on Sunday morning around 11 a.m,” said Harris. “I was able to do it in front of Shawn and to see the expressions on the coaches faces when I did it front of them was great.”
The Bearcats have jumped out to a 5-0 start and after looking at their schedule, the next three opponents have a combined record of just 3-12.
“I think we have been playing good,” said Harris. “We have some kinks, but it still early. But we have time for improvement. Offensively we have been solid. Defensively we need some work. But overall we are off to a good start.”
