Sherrod Harris Lowers 40 Time, Plans For Visits

Arlington Bowie QB Sherrod Harris is a standout prospect who has an offer from Texas. He took some time to speak to Inside Texas about his performance at Nike Camp, the two teams tied as the leaders for his signature and his summer camp plans.

Sherrod Harris participated in the Nike Camp at TCU this past weekend, blowing away his older combine numbers. "My 40 time was trash," the Arlington Bowie star said despite his swift result. "I ran a 4.6 (range) but I know that I can run a 4.5." He also has a vertical leap of 38" and benches 315 and squats 520.

Harris claims seven offers. "I have been offered by Texas, Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, LSU, Syracuse, Colorado State, and TCU," he told IT. "Texas and Stanford are tied as my leaders." Harris also said that Kansas, Kansas State, and Purdue may offer soon. Texas, Stanford, and Georgia Tech will receive official visits from Harris.

Harris has made three unofficial visits. "I've been to Texas, Texas A&M, and Georgia Tech," he said. "The Texas trip was great. I had a chance to meet a whole bunch of the players and see my former teammates (CBs Brandon Foster and Ryan Palmer)." He went on to say that he is currently being recruited by UT Tight Ends Coach Bruce Chambers. "Coach Chambers is a great guy and a down to earth person. He doesn't beat around the bush," Harris said. He also had an opportunity to talk to UT Head Coach Mack Brown. "Coach Brown is a great guy too, I love the way he runs his program and he's very enthusiastic."

What factors will play into his college decision? "I want to go to a school that has great academics, a good program, and good location. That is the exact order as well," Harris said. Not a surprising priority list given his obvious focus on academics. He carries an outstanding 4.2 GPA and a score of 1310 on the SAT. (He'll be taking the ACT in July.)

Harris will be camping this summer at a few different locations. "I'll be going to Springdale, Ark. for the QB Challenge and I'll be camping at Texas. I also hope to camp at Stanford and Georgia Tech."
