Will Harris may have been the top prospect in attendance at the UCLA one-day camp early last month. He showed speed, strength, smarts, and some major quickness. The most important attribute Will possesses is that he looks physically ready to compete at the college level right now.

He has written offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, UCLA, Washington, and Washington State. Will says that UA, UCLA, UW, and WSU are after him the hardest.

"My favorite school is Arizona State," said Harris. "They are really looking good right now. They are my leader and after them I would say UCLA and USC are right there. Those are my top three with the edge to ASU. I also like Oregon, Washington, Washington State, and Arizona."

Why is ASU the favorite? "They are losing two safeties that are seniors and I think I can step in and play. The coaches also seem nice and it looks like a good place to go to school."

Dan Fidler is recruiting him for the Sun Devils.

The Bruins' one-day camp was the only event that Harris attended this summer. He will not make it to anymore. He came away with a good impression of what he saw in Westwood. "It is a very good neighborhood that surrounds the school. I had a nice time speaking with the coaches and I really enjoyed all of them. UCLA is showing me a lot of attention."

Eric Bieniemy is recruiting him for the Bruins.

USC is the only school in Harris' top seven that has not offered but that is not stopping him from liking the Trojans. "I have a real good relationship with Brennan Carroll. USC is a top school with a lot of tradition and I am liking that."

Do either the Bruins or Trojans have the lead for his number two spot, behind Arizona State? "That is too close to call. I like both of them equally right now."

Will says that all schools involved like him at free safety.

He carries a 2.7 core GPA and scored an 800 on his SAT.
