Nike camp report - Darin Harris

Darin Harris is a 5-10, 194-pound athlete from Federal Way (Wash.) Decatur, and Harris went down to Eugene, Oregon last weekend with one purpose - to prove that he could compete with the best QB's on the west coast. But with scholarship offers already in hand from Washington and Colorado, he really didn't have anything to prove to anybody.

"I could have played better today," Harris told TheInsiders at the end of the Oregon Nike camp. "And using a different ball didn't help. I should have brought my ball with me. But I learned how to make quicker drops and how I need to bring my elbow straight down when I throw. It was very helpful."

Darin ran a 4.5 40, benched 185 pounds 17 times and jumped 29 inches in the vertical.

Harris went to the Ducks' one-day camp on Sunday, the second year in a row he's attended. He'll also be camping at Nebraska, Colorado and Washington.

With an offer from the Huskies, Darin took the initiative and called the football offices to find out the latest regarding Rick Neuheisel's suspension and likely termination as head coach. "I called them and asked them about the situation up there and they told me that I still have a scholarship offer waiting for me," he said. "You can't pick a school based on the coaches because the coaches can leave at the drop of a hat."

That said, Harris is still wide open at this point.
