RB/CB Prospect Has A Favorite

Baldwin Park (Calif.) running back/cornerback Aaron Harris has had a busy week on his campus as he prepares for the Scout Combine on Sunday, and the two-way prospect has a leader.

Baldwin Park (Calif.) running back Aaron Harris (5-10, 180) has had a slew of visitors on his campus this past week, and the offers are rolling in for Harris.

"I've had like 5-10 schools here this week," said Harris. "I've been offered by Oregon State, Nebraska, Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Colorado State so far."

Harris said that Washington was his leader, and Husky coach Tyrone Willingham was at his school during the week.

"I've been talking a lot with Coach Trent Miles and they want me to come in for an official visit. I can't wait to see what they have to offer," said Harris.

Harris said that UCLA, his childhood favorite, was running second, as he waits for an official offer from the Bruin staff.

"UCLA has always been my favorite. They want me to come in as a corner. And that is something that I am going to have to take into consideration, what schools want me as a running back and what schools want me as a cornerback," said Harris. "I prefer to run the ball."

Harris said that a decision wouldn't be coming for a while.

"My coach and I talked and we decided I wouldn't commit until the last minute. I wanted to commit early so that everything will be done with but I need to look at all of my options. But I can't wait to get to the next level and show what I can do," said Harris.

This weekend, Harris will be at the Scout.com All-American Combine in Los Angeles.

Harris has rushed for 3500 yards and 45 touchdowns the past two seasons, highlighted by a 2,163 yard, 32 touchdown campaign as a junior, in which he was named to the all-state underclass team and all-CIF. He also added 63 tackles, 41 solo and six interceptions from his cornerback spot.

Academically, Harris said his grades were improving and he is scheduled to take the SAT on June 3rd.
