Harris was recruited by former WVU assistant coach Bruce Tall, who left for Michigan when Rich Rodriguez defected from the Mountain State, and since that time he has not heard from the Mountaineers. That could be due to his iffy qualification status, but Harris says he is on track to be eligible at the end of the school year.
"My GPA is good," said Harris, who enrolled at Harmony Prep in order to firm up his GPA and test scores while also playing on one of the finest prep teams in the midwest. "I have done well in the classroom. I have the test coming up, but all I need is a 17 in order to get qualified. I think I can do that pretty easily."
Since Harris isn't sure of his status with West Virginia, he is beginning to look at other schools in order to cover his options.
"I am taking a trip to Ohio this weekend," he said. "But if West Virginia got back in touch with me, I would still definitely be interested in them."
Harris originally played at LaSalle High School in the Cincinnati area, which is the alma mater of current WVU offensive lineman Ryan Stanchek.
