Is Jeffers Solid?

Texas Tech received a commitment from 4 star RB Harrison Jeffers back in late March. Although the Eisenhower HS standout maintains that he is solid to the Red Raiders, a Big 12 north school is hot on his tail and Jeffers is likely to take a trip to see what they have to offer. RaiderPower.com caught up with Harrison to get the latest scoop on his recruitment.

Scout.com recently released a few star rankings for the class of 2008 and Harrison Jeffers was excited about being ranked as a 4 star prospect and the top running back in the state of Oklahoma.

"I'm excited about being a 4 star," said Jeffers. "I still feel I have something to prove so I'm going to work hard and try to show the scouts I'm deserving of a 5 star."

Even though the 5'10, 207 pound running back has committed to the Red Raiders, the Sooners and Cowboys are still trying to persuade the elusive running back to stay in state.

"Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are both still talking to me. Actually, an Oklahoma coach came by my school today."

Although the 2 big Oklahoma schools are staying in contact with him, the main team making a push for Jeffers is the Kansas State Wildcats.

"K-State is still coming after me pretty hard. They offered me recently and I'll probably go take a look up there because I have family in that area. My mother wants me to take a look at them, so I plan on doing that."

But Jeffers was quick to point out that Tech is still very much his #1 school.

"Tech is still where I want to go though. I really think it's the best place for me."

Harrison has built up a good relationship with Tech's running backs coach Seth Littrell since his commitment back in late March.

"Coach Littrell is real cool. He keeps in touch with me just to see how things are going with track and everything. I hear from him quite often."

Jeffers runs the 100 and 200 for Eisenhower and will be heading to state this weekend. His personal best times for the year are 10.28 for the 100 and 21.56 for the 200.
