Harris Setting Visits

The problem is, the elite defensive back, <b>Will Harris</b>, from Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak, might not take an official visit to UCLA, since it's local. A UCLA coach is recruiting him hard, though...

Will Harris (6-1, 190) is having a fine season for 2-0 Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak, having recorded 13 tackles and two forced fumbles on defense. On offense, in limited action, Harris has five catches for 102 yards and four carries for 67 yards.

The talented athlete now claims offers from the entire Pac-10, plus Utah, San Diego State, Kansas State, and Michigan. "I have a visit set to Washington State on December 11th and I had one scheduled to Kansas State for about three weeks from now but I have to re-schedule that," said Harris. "I am pretty sure I will use an official visit for Kansas State and for California. Other then Cal, I think I will take the rest of my official visits out-of-state. Arizona State is probably going to be one of them."

So does that mean he will not visit UCLA or USC officially? "I am not sure at this point. Coach (running backs Coach Eric) Bieniemy is trying real hard to get me to officially visit UCLA. I don't know yet if I will. I think I would rather use my visits on out-of-state schools. USC and UCLA were the first schools to call me at the beginning of the month."

Are these two still his favorites?

"I don't have any leaders right now. I want to take my visits."

Harris has only been to one local game. "I went to the San Diego State-Idaho State game because my brother, Michael, is a sophomore corner at Idaho State so I wanted to see him play."

The Covina star says that among all of the schools recruiting him, the Bruins are really standing out. "UCLA is after me real hard, there is no doubt about it. They and USC are recruiting me the hardest, but the Bruins are showing the most attention."

He will most likely attend the UCLA-Cal game.

Besides Kansas State, there is another Big 12 school that could become a major player if they show the appropriate attention. "Oklahoma has been showing me a lot more love lately. If they offered, they would definitely be in my top five."

Covina has a big home game versus traditional power Bishop Amat this Friday.
