Harris Doesn't Expect To Decide Soon
Marcell Harris says he doesn't have a top five and, despite many rumors otherwise, he doesn't plan to commit anytime soon. "The plan is to get a top five during the season, hopefully during the season I can come up with my decision after I get a couple of official visits out of the way," Harris said. The one visit Harris is sure of will be to Texas for the first game of the season. "I'm definitely going, on September 1st, to Texas for a game, to see how everything is," he said. "Really I want to go, I know it's going to be a nice atmosphere, other than that, going out there, looking at some of the players, see who's leaving, who's staying, and the academics part of it." Harris said there is no chance he commits to Texas while visiting on September 1st. As far as other official visits goes, Harris says there are a handful he'd like to see and he'll make a more specific plan later. "I can just choose a couple I want to go see, like USC, I'd like to go out there, Clemson, I might try to go up there for one, I need to figure out some more," he said. "I might (decide) after my officials, or if I'm really confident in the place I want to be, I could do it before I get done to all of them." There has been no shortage of buzz about Harris possibly committing to Florida soon because he's visited so many times and is close with several Gator commits. Harris says Florida is recruiting him the most right now, but that's simply because it's easy for him to visit there. He knows the coaches and players well. Harris says he knows a lot more people at Florida than Texas, but he did get to meet a few Texas commits at the Gridiron Kings 7on7 and talked to them about the Longhorns. "I don't have any friends at Texas, but I played with the Southwest team (at Gridiron Kings), there were a couple Texas commits on the team," he said. "They just wanted to pick my brain, and I was picking their brain to see how everything is." Now, Harris' focus has turned to his senior season and he's eager to make it a good one. "My expectations are ten interceptions, I always strive for two a game, it works sometimes, sometimes it doesn't work, but ten interceptions is my goal, and really being there for my cornerbacks and my team," he said. It should be quite a busy fall for Harris, as he expects his recruitment to really pick up in the coming months. "It's a slow process, when the season gets going, that's when everything speeds up."
