Audrex Harris stepped up during the second half of last season. As a result, he is attracting interest from several college football programs.
“I have an offer from James Madison,” said Audrex Harris. “The other schools that I have talked to the most over the past few months are West Virginia and Marshall.”
Other schools are recruiting the 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect and Harris knows his play this fall is critical.
“I have 10 games show Marshall, West Virginia, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Syracuse, Temple, and Pittsburgh what I can do,” he said. “I really didn’t start getting attention until the last five games of the season when my coaches put me at running back.”
Although Harris had a lot of success in the backfield, he is also being recruited to play on the defensive side of the ball.
“Some schools are recruiting me as a running back and others are recruiting me as a cornerback,” Harris said. “I feel like I’m a better running back, but I want to play whatever position will get me on the field the fastest.”
While Harris did not make many trips to colleges this summer, he does plan to take more visits this fall.
“I’m hoping to get to the West Virginia-James Madison game,” he said. “I also want to go to some (Virginia) Tech and UVA games. I really want to go see all the schools that are recruiting me.”
Harris has high expectations this season.
“I just want to go out and dominate,” he said. “I want to be a game-changer.”
Last season, Harris had 50 tackles on defense and 937 yards rushing on offense. He bench presses 275 pounds, squats 495, and runs the 40-yard in 4.49 seconds.
