Setting Visits

West Virginia remains the favorite of a Pennsylvania linebacker who has begun to set his official visits, but other Big Ten and Big East schools remain in the hunt.

Sharon linebacker Kellen Harris, who has offers from West Virginia, Cincinnati, Indiana, Akron and Marshall, said the Mountaineers are still at the top of his list.

"I still like West Virginia, but I am considering other schools for official visits as well," said the aggressive linebacker. "I am setting up an official visit for West Virginia near the end of the season – I think that is on November 11. Cincinnati and Indiana, I'm looking at them for official visits too."

Harris, who is pulling double duty for Sharon, is still listening to recruiting pitches, but plans to put most of his official visits off until after his high school season. He hopes to help propel Sharon to a playoff spot – a process that is off to a good start.

"We are 3-0 so far," Harris said of his team's good start. "I think I have been playing really well on defense. On offense I am playing tailback, and in my last game I had 129 yards on 25 carries."

While admitting that playing running back "is fun", Harris also knows that it's something that will end once his high school days are over. All of the schools recruiting him have him targeted as a linebacker, and understandably so. The versatile outside ‘backer has been a starter at Sharon since his freshman season, and possesses excellent range and tackling ability.
