Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft running back Andre Harris (6-0, 215) had a solid showing at the Combine last weekend, testing well and having a much better time there than at some of the previous combines he attended.

On the recruiting front, Harris' favorites haven't changed, with his top four being UCLA, USC, Notre Dame and Cal.

"I'm pretty wide open, but Notre Dame and Cal I like a lot right now," said Harris.

Several schools have been by the Taft campus, visiting Harris and teammate Jamere Holland, including UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell.

"Coach Dorrell came by our school and so did Coach (Eric) Bieniemy. I know they are interested in me," said Harris.

Harris said while he doesn't have an offer, he thinks he could be receiving one very soon.

A transfer from Pacific Palisades (Calif.) Palisades, Harris ran for nearly 900 yards on 106 carries and scored 3 touchdowns. But he is feeling much more comfortable at Taft. "It was the best thing for me to leave and come to Taft. This offense is more suited for my strong running ability," said Harris.

At the Combine this past weekend, Harris tested the best he has at any combine, (he participated in the Combine at the All-American Game in San Antonio last January and the Los Angeles Nike Camp).

On Saturday, ran a 4.62 forty, a 4.53 shuttle, jumped 33 inches and had a 115 on the broad jump.

"I thought I did good in the drills, too," said Harris.

Harris was at UCLA's Junior Day and attended USC's Junior Day as well.

He won't make any early decision, waiting for some offers and wanting to take some trips.

Academically, Harris has a 2.8 GPA and is taking SAT preparation classes.
