With Allen committed to A&M, Harris looks elsewhere
With Arizona's Kyle Allen, one of the best pocket passers in the Class of 2014, giving a verbal commitment to Texas A&M on Monday afternoon, Louisiana dual-threat signal-caller Brandon Harris announced on Twitter that he will no longer be considering the Aggies in his recruitment.
The 6-2, 186-pounder from Parkway High School (Bossier City, LA) originally had Kevin Sumlin's program on his list of final seven schools, but now the QB will consider six others: Auburn, Ole Miss, Alabama, Baylor, Ohio State and LSU.
Considered by most recruiting analysts to be a Top 5 national dual-threat, Harris has strongly been linked to Alabama and Ohio State, but he will continue to take visits to schools and let the process play out before publicly choosing on July 18.
Harris visited Alabama last Thursday before heading to Ohio State for the weekend for the Elite 11 quarterback camp. He has future visits set for Auburn, Ole Miss and Baylor.
Auburn could be considered a wild card because of the strong relationship Harris has with offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee and the fact that he would be running Gus Malzahn's offense, which would suit his skill set very well.
