Georgia linebacker Christian Harris, who committed to the Vols on March 20, has had an opportunity to reflect on that decision. The talented athlete has also gotten the opportunity to get to know his future coaches a little better.
Harris made the trip to Rocky Top for the Orange and White game and came away very impressed with his future school.
"It was great," Harris told InsideTennessee.com. "I was really impressed with how many fans came out to support the team. I liked everything about the day, the campus and the atmosphere."
While it was unclear if Tennessee was Harris' first offer, the Georgia native explained that wasn't the case.
"Central Florida was my first offer," Harris said. "When I got the Tennessee offer I just thought it was too good to pass up."
Harris is expecting several coaches to visit his high school after spring ball begins at Etowah High School next week.
"Coach Thompson has already come by the school," Harris said. "He said he will be back for a practice this spring. Several other coaches are expected to stop by. I have told my coach to tell everyone I'm very solid to Tennessee."
What intrigued Harris about Derek Dooley and what the first-year coach is building in Knoxville?
"I know that I will get a shot to play for a national championship during my years at Tennessee," Harris said. "That's important to me."
It also appears that Dooley has made a lasting impression on Harris.
"We got the chance to talk a lot about a lot of different things," Harris said. "I like his plans for the program. I love the traditions that Tennessee football is all about."
Harris feels he brings a lot to the table for the Vols at the linebacker position.
"I'm a big hitter," Harris said. "I really love getting after the football. I'm very aggressive."
Harris, a 6-foot-1 and a half inch, 230-pound athlete with 4.8 40 speed, is currently not ranked by Scout.com.
