The Opening: Treon Harris Update

Treon Harris

Treon Harris said he would like to make a decision sometime this summer. Will he end up in Tallahassee, stay home in Miami or leave the state?

Hands down Treon Harris is one of the most special and elite talents from the Sunshine State in the Class of 2014. Playing quarterback he was spectacular in leading Miami Booker T. Washington to the state championship this past season.

For Harris, he would love the opportunity to continue to be the signal caller at the next level. It may not happen. He could end up playing cornerback like his brother (Brandon Harris) or even wide receiver. Here at The Opening he's playing in the slot and loving it.

"Oh, it's been so much fun out here," Harris said. "And there has been a lot of competition."

Harris, 5-foot-11 and 170-pounds, has offers from Florida State, Boston College, Arizona, Clemson, Illinois, Louisville, Miami, Ole Miss, South Florida and UCF. What position do most of the college programs like him at?

"Man, I can't keep track," Harris said. "Some like me at quarterback. Some like me at slot receiver. Some like me at cornerback. Honestly, I want to play quarterback. But I also just want to play ball."

If Harris were to play quarterback he would likely have to leave the state, although he insists that FSU wants him to be a quarterback in Tallahassee. He will camp there later this month and show Jimbo Fisher what he can do.

"I will go to FSU [camp] to throw the ball. I might play a little wide receiver," Harris said. "I want to see how Jimbo is. I want to see something I haven't seen yet from FSU. I will also visit Alabama this month.

"Arizona and Boston College are the two schools out of state that I could end up at. I would say right now it's 50-50 that I leave the state."

So what has happened with Miami? It's a school where he has so many ties.

"I am not talking with them that much," Harris said. "They like me as a slot."

Harris, a four-star recruit, seems like he's in a hurry to make a decision. He hopes to make a decision soon.

"I may do something before the end of the summer," Harris said. "I want to do something this summer. I am just looking for the right school, the right fit." Recommended Stories
