Another weekend. Another Tennessee visit for Brendon Harris.
The Scout No. 204-ranked prospect in the 2018 class is fast getting to know Butch Jones and his staff of assistants. Harris was back in Knoxville on Saturday.
“I wouldn’t say much was different,” Harris told InsideTennessee. “I just got to see new stuff. I got the see the facilities, the dorms and stuff that I haven’t gotten to see before and actually seen them practice.”
It was the Baylor (Tenn.) School safety’s first time seeing Tennessee defensive backs coach Charlton Warren work out the Volunteers.
“I liked what I saw of it,” said Harris, who saw Tennessee do some situational scrimmage work as well.
“That was a good scrimmage. I liked the pace that they play at. It was just good.”
The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder that ranks as the Scout No. 7 safety in the South, says he knows Vols safeties Todd Kelly Jr. and Nigel Warrior.
“They love it (at Tennessee),” Harris said. “Even though it’s a new coach, they love him just as much as the old coach (Willie Martinez).”
Coaches all over are on the road with the NCAA Evaluation Period. Warren and other Tennessee coaches figure to make their way down to Chattanooga to see Harris practice.
“I’ve been building a comfortable relationship with them, so it will be nice to see them again,” Harris said.
The Baylor School has its prom this Saturday, so the four-star prospect will not be in attendance for the DISH Orange & White game in Knoxville. However, he does plan to make the short jaunt back up Interstate-75 “probably during the summer just to hang out with the coaches again.”
The relationship building continues to strengthen between both parties as Harris was joined by family on this particular trip to Rocky Top.
“They’re up there at the top — for sure,” Harris said of Tennessee.
Other programs flashing for Harris include Auburn, Clemson, Louisiana State, Ohio State and Oklahoma. The defensive back spoke like he will make his way south to The Plains during the last weekend in April.
“I’ll be at Auburn that next week, and then I plan to go to some of those schools,” he said.
When he’s not working out and visited schools this spring, Harris will participate on the Baylor School track and field team, running in the 200-meter dash, 4x100-meter relay and 4x200-meter relay.
