Harris hoping for TCU offer

Harris hoping for TCU offer

Arlington, Texas cornerback Devin Harris is becoming one of the more known 2013 prospects in the Lone Star state.

Arlington, Texas is home to one of the nation's top 2013 linebackers in Sammy Douglas. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder is the headliner among an impressive group of Colt players and was the first commitment for TCU's 2013 class. One of Douglas' teammates is also drawing interest from the Frogs; cornerback Devin Harris. The rising corner has created quite a bit of recruiting buzz of late .

At the Frogs' one day camp on June 8th, Harris was one of the more impressive players at the corner position. He recorded one of the best vertical leaps of the day and certainly caught the coaches attention with his play at corner.

For the 5-foot-10, 170-pounder, it was just another day at the office.

"I just showed up and showed out, that's my motto," Harris said of his TCU camp performance. "I had 38" vertical and that put me on the spot light a little and I ran a 4.52 and a 4.33 shuttle. The cornerback coach talked to me afterward and he gave me his card and he had some of us stay after to work with us on our coverages."

Despite leaving the TCU camp without an offer, Harris isn't left without options. On the table for Harris are offers from Navy, Rice, Tulsa, Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Monroe.

He's also receiving the strongest interest from TCU and Iowa State, who also could be close to an offer. He has plans to hit camps at both schools next month.

"I'm going to the TCU camp on the 13th and hopefully I'll be able to make Iowa State's on the 20th," Harris said. "Hopefully I'll get offers from them.

With five offers in the fold, Harris says an offer from the Frogs would put them at the top.

"It would jump it up a lot, I like TCU a lot," he said of TCU. "The Big 12 has a lot of competition and I think I would fit in right. I like their aggressive style of defense, I like that a lot. I like to be in the spot light."

An offer from the Frogs would certainly change Harris' recruitment and would give him the opportunity to play alongside Douglas for four more years. Harris says Douglas gives him "friendly" advice about TCU quite often.

"All the time, he wants me to come play with him and I want to play with him too because I've been playing with him since the fourth grade," he said of Douglas.

What is Harris looking for in a program?

"Coaching staff, tradition, I'd like to play closer to home," he said.

Harris recorded 65 tackles and with 7 interceptions and 15 PBU's for the Colts in 2011.
