One To Watch: Josh Harris

One To Watch: Josh Harris

Recruitment is picking up steam for Denton (TX) Guyer receiver/corner Josh Harris. Come inside to see which schools are in the picture. Also, Harris recaps last month's visits to Texas and Texas Tech, before specifically discussing what he wants in his future school.

"No offers yet," noted the speedy 5'10, 170-pounder, "but I've been hearing a lot from Oklahoma State, Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas, California, Purdue, Missouri, and LSU."

"I played DB last year, and only OSU was really looking at me, but when I went to the Army combine in San Antonio earlier this year- that's when all the other schools started writing me. I worked out at receiver at the combine."

Harris said, according to his coaches, most of the schools are interested in offering him, but want to see him in action on offense in spring ball before making a decision.

The Guyer product has only been able to make two trips this spring.

On Texas Tech, Harris said, "It was a nice campus, but I wouldn't go there… It's in the middle of nowhere."

"We didn't get to talk to any coaches. My mom and I went up there to go check out the college just to see what it was like. The coaches have been writing me a lot saying they're going to come see me, Ellis (Jefferson), and Patrick (Morris) during spring ball. But other than that, I wasn't too crazy about the campus."

"Purdue sends me mail all the time, too. I was supposed to go to their junior day, but I had the SAT and ACT on the same day so I couldn't go."

As for Texas, "It was nice. UT is a great place. I don't know if I would go there, though. Some of my coaches tell me that Coach Brown recruits a lot of players, and if I went there, I probably wouldn't play much."

"I want to go somewhere where I'm going to get a lot of playing time."

He would also like to go somewhere with an environment similar to the one he grew up in.

"Cal, USC, Oregon, LSU, or Miami," he listed. "Schools close to the beach, where it's not too hot, not too cold. It's just perfect. I'm from California, so it would be amazing to go back there to play college football."

A native to Laguna Beach, it was in seventh grade that Harris moved with his parents and their jobs to Denton, Texas. And while he admitted the culture was difficult to adjust to, he attributes it and the caliber of Texas football to the promising future he holds today.

And while west coast sits close to his heart, Harris made it clear that, as he patiently awaits that first offer, he will not limit himself.

"I'm open to visiting anywhere," he said.

This offseason, he is focused on improving his speed and strength on the gridiron. Track should help. Harris is busy competing in the 4x1 (with a best time of 10.3 seconds) and 4x2 (best, 21 seconds).

Visits and camps TBD. Keep it here on FOXSportsNEXT for more.
