OL Prospect Mike Harris

The 6-5, 300-pound offensive line prospect from Duarte, Mike Harris, isn't too well known right now, but he does have a D-1 offer and is getting attention from the Pac-10. How does he stand with UCLA?

One of the guests at UCLA's Junior Day on March 4th who is flying under the recruiting radar a bit is Duarte (Calif.) offensive tackle Mike Harris.

Harris, who is 6-5 and 300, has the Bruins as his favorite school and said if they offered him, he'd commit.

"I want to wait and take my time, but if UCLA offered me, I'd go," said Harris.

Harris has one scholarship offer already, from Ole Miss, and says that Oregon State and Washington State are the other schools he's hearing from quite a bit.

So, what's his situation with UCLA? "I know that the (UCLA) coaches said they don't have a lot of scholarships to give, but they said they like me and are going to watch me," Harris said.

During Junior Day, Harris spent most of his time talking with Coach Dino Babers, but also got to spend time with new line coach Jim Colletto.

"Coach Babers is really cool. He's got a nice personality. I liked Coach Colletto a lot too. And then I got to talk with Coach (Karl) Dorrell some. They make you feel at home," Harris said.

A good student, Harris has a 3.85 GPA and will take the SAT in April. He said he's shooting for a 4.0 GPA his final year. "School is important to me and to my family," said Harris. "I'm going to look at the academics closely when I decide."

Harris said his only plans for camps this spring and summer include the Scout.com Combine in May, an Oregon State team camp and possibly the UCLA camp.
