Brandon Harris sets up AU visit - week of July 10th



Mini Cam

quote:

After a busy week in the world of quarterback recruiting, Bossier City, Louisiana quarterback Brandon Harris now stands as one of the top uncommitted quarterback prospects remaining. Harris, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound dual-threat star, has watched a number of his fellow 2014 quarterbacks pledge their commitments to schools around the SEC and the rest of the nation but says he's not changing his plans.

"I'm still sticking with my announcement date of July 18th," Harris said. "I have said all along that would be my decision date and I feel like any coaches that truly want me will wait for that date."

Harris has already taken unofficial visits to LSU, Alabama and Ohio State in recent weeks and plans to visit at least three more schools before his July 18th decision date.

"Right now, my tentative plan is to visit Auburn on July 10," Harris said. "Before that, I will visit Baylor and Ole Miss at some point although I don't have dates setup yet. I want Auburn to be my last visit so I can have a full week to soak everything up and pray about my decision with my family."

Harris, who is rated the top dual-threat QB in the nation by 247Sports, has listed Auburn as one of his top three schools for weeks and said that while recruiting is a constantly shifting prospect for him, his relationship with the Auburn coaching staff has remained strong and stable.

"I really get along so well with Coach Malzahn and Coach Lashlee. It's been great getting to know them and I think we agree on a lot of things, even outside of football. Coach Lashlee likes to call me 'Mini Cam' which makes me laugh. I'm obviously not as big as Cam but I do pride myself on my arm strength and my ability to make plays with my feet and I love Coach Malzahn's offense."

While Harris said he isn't ready to name any favorites or even specify what it is he'll be looking for during his remaining visits, he did say all the remaining contenders for his signature share one thing in common: a willingness to play a fast-paced, wide open style of football.

"It's really what college football is moving towards now," Harris said. "You're seeing it all over the country. Auburn, Ole Miss, Ohio State and Baylor all run some kind of spread formation and they all try to keep the pace high and LSU will be moving to that this fall. It's something that I think fits my skills really well."

If he visits, odds are he will commit to Auburn, IYAM.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him commit soon to Auburn. Its an easy sell for a dual threat QB to play in that offense.

Sounds like a humble kid:

quote:

"[LSU coaches] said they’re not going to offer another quarterback until I tell them I don’t want to come there," Harris said. "They feel like I’m the best guy in the country just like everyone else does."

With Harris set to make a decision in a month, it should be a dramatic conclusion to his recruitment.
"It’s going to be pivotal," Harris said. "July 18th is a month away. I think it’s going to be the most hectic thing that anybody has ever seen in the history of recruiting. It’s going to be awesome."

If he isn't ready to completely end his recruitment between LSU and Auburn he may commit to LSU so he can flip later if he wants.

It would be a great fit in a system I think he would fit perfectly in.


If he makes the visit, you've gotta like AUs chances

He seems like a head ache honestly. I hope he ends up at AU but my LSU brothers will disagree.

Has he visited Ole Miss before? I know he said he would visit but would it be the first time?

If it is the 1st time.....

OM LOCK!

That sounds cocky as hell.


He does look like a baller though. Gotta like AU's chances to land him.

re: Brandon Harris sets up AU visit - week of July 10th


I'd much rather have an overblown ego at QB than someone that pouts and thinks the world is over ever time he makes a mistake. I can only think of one cocky Auburn QB in recent history, and he turned out pretty well. As long as he comes in and works as hard as Cam did, I don't care how much of a douche the guy is.
