Harris expecting more offers

Memphis Whitehaven star linebacker Charles Harris is receiving steady interest from several FBS programs. Harris already has an offer from Memphis and expects to get another offer soon. Coaches at Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, and Southern Miss are very interested in obtaining Harris' services at their schools.

Charles Harris, who has 4.73 forty speed, is a standout linebacker for Whitehaven high school in Memphis. Harris finished his junior campaign with 70 tackles, three interceptions (one touchdown), two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one blocked punt and one blocked field goal. He earned all-district honors following the season.

"I just think my hard work and determination. My smarts on and off the field give me an extra edge over my opponents," said Harris when asked what makes him a great player.

Recently Harris updated us on his recruiting:

Vanderbilt - I've been talking to coach [Mike] Pelton. He wanted me to come up to camp. I didn't think I was going to be able to make it to the individual skills camp so I am going up to the 7-on-7 camp. Harris said of Vandy, "I'm extremely interested in Vanderbilt because my sister goes to college Tennessee State so we'd be right down the road from each other. I've gone to Vanderbilt a lot for past 7-on-7 camps. I like the coaching staff and I really think Vanderbilt is coming up in SEC football. They are doing great things over there so I'd love to get an offer from Vanderbilt."

Southern Miss - "Southern Miss should be offering me tomorrow," said Harris. "They really like me so they are probably going to offer." The USM coaches saw him at a camp at Olive Branch high school in Mississippi.

Ole Miss - Harris camped at Ole Miss for their elite camp. "Coach [Tyrone] Nix really likes my footwork," said Harris. According to Harris coach Nix wants to see him in a game to see how hard he hits. Asked what an Ole Miss offer would mean to him Harris replied, "It would be a nice thrill, I really like it considering Ole Miss is not too far from home. I've been to Ole Miss quite a few times and I really like their facilities, coaching staff and the way they do things there."

Others – Harris has also camped at Mississippi State, Memphis and Southern Miss. He is considering camping at Tennessee as well. He says he doesn't think he'll make Duke's camp but he does plan on making a visit.

Harris says he has no favorites. Stay tuned to VandyMania.com/ Scout.com for more on linebacker Charles Harris.
